HueZapper is a new app designed to be the most intuitive way to switch on and off and adjust your smart lights. It was initially created by a passionate developer as a project for personal use.

HueZapper iPhone app

A remote control for your lights

Forget complicated interfaces that require navigating through several screens to find the light you want to turn on or off: with HueZapper your iPhone or iPad becomes a remote control surface where buttons and sliders allow instant access to your lights.

Better yet, you can customize it to suit your preferences and needs. Organize your lights into zones and rearrange them as it makes most sense for you.

Easily capture current light settings as a scene that can be recalled at any time at the tap of a button. Assign names and custom icons to scenes to find them in the blink of an eye.


Version 2.0 just released on the App Store.

  • You can now create unlimited zones, each containing up to 10 lights and 10 scenes.
  • Even easier to use: instantly turn lights on and off by simply force-pressing the light buttons.
  • Two remote control user interfaces to choose from: the "classic" one or the new one with ring hue slider and saturation up/down switch.
  • Quick access to the current zone settings by swiping left from the right edge of the screen.

You can be up and running in seconds, thanks to the auto-configuration feature that will set up the app using information contained in the bridge. Of course, you can review and tweak the configuration at any time.

Smart dimming

When you adjust the brightness of lights set to a white tone, the color temperature will automatically be shifted accordingly. Lights will become warmer (more yellow-orange) as they are dimmed and cooler (more bluish) as they go brighter. This looks and feels like a traditional incandescent lamp.

One-touch scenes

You need just one tap to capture the current light settings into a scene. A new scene button will appear on your remote and you can recall that scene at any time with just another tap on the button. If you make adjustments to the scene lights, force-press the scene button and its settings are updated.

Linked lights

Define "linked lights" sets, so multiple bulbs are always controlled together, as if they were wired to the same switch. This is ideal for situations like lamps along a corridor or a set of recessed downlights on your ceiling. The lights you link are represented by a single light button in the remote control interface.
