New software profile allows for control of Philips Hue from Savant’s award-winning iOS TrueControl App.

Savant Systems, LLC has announced support for Philips Hue LED lighting as part of their latest release. The communication protocol for Philips Hue has been profiled and is now native to the Savant platform. No third party drivers or accessories are required to achieve seamless interoperability.

Philips Hue bulbs allow for colored lighting effects to be integrated very easily, without requiring a complete DMX or other RGB lighting control system.
