If you are in smart home goodies or have bright lights, you probably have Philips Hue light. Philips offers a lot of control over Hue light, and the platform connects with a variety of different third party services that let you take things on a completely different level.
However, until this date, there is a great feature missing on Philips Hue lights is the ability to control startup impact. Earlier, when you turn on a Philips Hue light, they would turn on at full brightness and to the default settings. And with the latest update to the Philips Hue app, you can now control this behavior to turn on with the previous state. This means that the lights will turn on with the same settings as it was turned off without damaging the eyes at full brightness.
And although it's definitely a nice change, you still get no granular control of performance. For example, it would be nice to turn the lights on a different profile, or an entirely different set of settings instead of the previous state.
Either way, you can get the new boot effect enabled on the Philips Hue lights with the latest update to the Android app here and the iOS app here.
