Screenshot of WinHue


WinHue is a desktop application that can control the Philips Hue lighting system. It is easy to install and use, and is one of the few fully-featured Hue apps on Windows.

Plus, it's FREE!

Edit Everything

Many items on the Hue bridge can be created, modified and deleted. These include:

  • Groups
  • Schedules
  • Scenes
  • Rules
  • Sensors
  • More!

Timer and schedules can also be set to recurr at certain times!

Full Control

WinHue allows ultimate control of lights and groups.

  • Name
  • Color
  • Brightness
  • White Temperature
  • Saturation

Quick and easy setup with support for multiple bridges means you'll be up and running with little more than a tap of the push-link button on your bridge.

And Finally...

WinHue also has a fully-featured console application bundled with the installer.

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
