Change the way you watch TV, Movies and Gaming with Huey! Huey uses your device’s camera and microphone to dynamically change colors on your Philips Hue or LIFX light bulbs. By pointing your camera to your TV or display, you can create dramatic lighting effects for a more realistic and immersive experience. All you need to get started is a Philips Hue Bridge and 1 or more connected Philips Hue or LIFX lights, it’s that simple! The result will be an amazing light show that rivals some of the other pricier ambient light solutions in the market.
For devices running Android 5.0 and up, Huey also introduces a new feature called Background mode, which allows the app to detect the colors on your screen while running in the background (no root required). Sync your light’s colors while watching a video, playing your favorite game or looking at pictures from your mobile device.
Please check out the YouTube promo video for a demo of Huey in action.
