Hue Lights v1.7 Offers Advanced Weather Simulator for Philips Hue

Experience realistic storms with customized controls for lightning strikes, rain density, bird songs, wind speed, sleep timer, brightness and sky color.

San Jose, CA – LapApps, LLC announced today the release of Hue Lights 1.7, an update to its popular lifestyle app for iOS devices.

This new version brings weather simulations to smart LED bulbs, such as thunderstorms, rain density, wind speed, sky color and sleep timer that allows you to fall asleep to a gentle sound of rain and birds for a peaceful night.

Thunder and lightning are synchronized to keep observers in the eye of the storm. The frequency of lightning strikes, rainfall and bird songs can be adjusted in real-time to immediately see results. Birds can appear in millions of different locations, near and far, as the app moves them through space using advanced soundscape algorithms. Brightness, color, animation speed and volume can all be adjusted to create a personalized storm.

Weather simulator

The weather simulator is available as the “Thunderstorm” In-App purchase. No other In-App purchase is needed to use the weather simulator. Once purchased all lights recognized by the Philips Hue bridge can be included in the storm. The thunderstorm effect works best with Philips Hue bulbs including A19, BR30 and GU10 bulbs with color support. To use the experimental strobe feature the bulbs must be Philips Hue bulbs.
