Oni: Light Control for Windows Phone – Remote Lighting (Philips Hue)January 25, 2013 3 Comments
Here is a pretty nice looking app to help you use your Philips Hue set up using your Windows Phone. The app is wonderfully built and looks like it is a snap to configure. Only downside is the actual hardware as a Philips Hue starter pack will cost you near $300.
It is pretty damn cool though, especially that you can create custom colors for your room by using pictures from your phone.
Setup your Moods / the colorful representation of your digital self
- Colorize it: Create customized moods by adjusting the hue of each connected bulb for the rooms in your home.
- Make it your own: You can also use picture from your library as a color source.
Light control has excellent native voice command support. Activate your phone voice command feature and tell your lights what to set the mood to.
- “Set lights in the bedroom to Dawn.”
- “Set lights to Purple Rain.”
- “Set lights off”
- “Set lights back to normal.”
Walk into your living room, play some nice music, and simply say “Set lights to Dusk”.
Oni: Light Control allows you to set the color of the lights in your home with your voice*. Create customized moods by adjusting the hue of each connected bulb for the rooms in your home. You can also use picture from your library as a color source.
