OS X menu bar app released to control Hue lighting
Earlier this year, Philips released its Hue connected lighting system, which consists of Wi-Fi-enabled LED lightbulbs users can control via an iOS app. The lights have proved insanely popular among both techies and ordinary consumers. Last March, Philips released an official SDK for the lights. Now, a developer has made an app called Hue Menu that allows customers to control their Hue lights from any Mac.
The app is a simple menu bar drop-down utility that allows users to adjust their Hue lights via several ways. For instance, you can use OS X's Color Picker to set each bulbs hue, create presets for certain lights, turn lights on and off and adjust brightness. You can even set the lights to randomly change color patterns.
Hue Menu is US$2.99 in the Mac App Store.
