Magic Scenes are one of iConnectHue’s great features.

They are similar to normal scenes, but much more versatile. Created once, they are then usable for every group – unlike normal scenes, which are group-dependent.

All user changable settings for Magic Scenes are specific to each group – e.g. when a Magic Scene in group A is set to a lower brightness, it will then always use this lower brightness when selected in group A, but not in group B.

 

 
 

How to access Magic Scenes

 

 

 

 

 

Magic Scenes can be chosen from any group or room by tapping on the circle with the star.


 

 

 

 

 

We have already prepared many ready-made Magic Scenes to choose from.

Some are free of charge, some cost a little money.


 

 

 

 

You simply choose a Magic Scene by tapping on it.

For the selected scene, three dots appear in the top corner. Tapping here, you may edit the Magic Scene and add it as a widget or Siri shortcut.

Self-made scenes can also be shared between devices via e.g. AirDrop.


 
 

How to create a new Magic Scene

 

 

 

 

 

You may create your own Magic Scene by tapping on the plus symbol on the top.


 

 

 

 

 

This will open a new pop-up, where you can select the different colours the Magic Scene should be constituted off.


 

 

 

 

 

Colours and favourite colours can be selected as usual.


 

 

 

Up to 8 colours can be chosen, and each new colour will change the colour circle defining the lamp colours.

The circle itself can be moved, changing the current colours of the lamp.

 

However, many different colours are mostly useful for large groups with many lamps.

If you only have small group it might thus make sense to choose only a few colours for better colour control.


 

 

 

 

 

Unwanted colours can be deleted by tapping the edit pen on the top, and the „X“ above the colour.


 
 

How things are stored specifically per group

 

 

 

 

The brightness of the scene can also be changed.

As explained above, it might be altered in each group the Magic Scene is selected.


 

 

 

 

 

By altering the saturation you can decide if colours should appear more whitish or fully saturated.


 
 

Advanced options

 

 

 

 

The advanced tab offers even more settings, such as „Brightness variation“.

This specifies how much the brightness varies from light to light.

It works better if the overall brightness is not on maximum.


 

 

 

 

Saturation variation is for varying the saturation over individual lights.

Some will appear more whitish, some more saturated.

Again, having the overall saturation not on maximum gives better results.


 

 

 

 

Color spreading defines how many of the circle’s colours are being used for the lights.

If you choose a value on the left, only a little amount of the colour circle will be used for the lamps.

If the slider is completely on the right, all colours will be chosen.


 

 

 

 

 

By tapping the open circle on the top left, all settings can be reversed.


 

 

 

 

 

By tapping on the arrow on the top left, a pop-up will ask you save or discard changes.


 

 

 

 

 

If tapped on „Save“ you may enter the name of your new Magic Scene.



 
 

Sharing and editing

 

 

 

 

This Magic Scene will then appear in your overview.

It can be edited, deleted, shared and added to widgets/Siri as usual.


 

We wish you a lot of fun with iConnectHue’s features!
