This app will transform your Philips Hue lights into your own personal Sun.
Reproducing the sunrise and sunset brightness and color pattern, it will make your morning waking hours more natural.
Choose time, frequency, whether you want to wake up (sunrise) or go to sleep (sunset), the lights you want to use and how long you want it to last : the application will do the rest and will program your bridge to trigger the sunrise or the sunset at the right time.
You can also select the sun pattern you want to use.
From then, just sit back and let this app and the Hue bridge do their magic. Contrary to most other apps, you will NOT need to keep your iPhone connected or even on. The schedule is programmed directly on the bridge.
Numerous studies have proven the effect of a natural light sunrise pattern on alertness.
Inspired by those (including Philips own http://www.usa.philips.com/c/light-therapy/11625/cat/#2) and the abilities of the Hue, we’ve reproduced the non-linear pattern of the sun going up through the atmosphere and down.
By using 6 different color pivot point, we reproduced the most accurate sunrise and sunset possible with the Hue. The default pattern starts with a deep blue transitioning through the pink, orange and yellow we all love, until the final white light. You will wake up and go to sleep with the next best thing after the sun itself.
WARNING : the hue bridge does not allow more than 100 schedule as of right now, so only 15 different sunrise / sunset pattern are programmable per Hue bridge.
