  1. Keybinds/Hotkeys for changing Hue+ lighting profiles

    It would be nice to be able to assign different lighting profiles to a hotkey or be able to cycle through a few different profiles with a hotkey much like Corsair's software for their strafe keyboards.

  2. Network/Internet Activity Graphs

    There are many network/internet monitoring programs out there that can be used for inspiration, but these are the features that come to my mind:

    1. Graph showing periodic pings to a given IP/web-address. The user can enter "google.com" and/or their website's address, for example, and set it to ping ever second or minute. This would act as a heart beat of the user's connection to the website(s) or the internet in general.
    2. Graph showing internet upload/download speeds. Maybe have the program conduct an internet speed test periodically (a period prescribed by the user) to show how the speeds differ…

  4. How about keeping old versions online?

    How about keeping old versions so that if like me you update and the shit stops working you can get the bloaty spyware working again?

  5. Overall profiles

    Just got my GRID+ and was very disappointed to find no overall profile system in the CAM software.

    What I really want is to configure several overall profiles and then, within each, configure what each fan should do. That way I can have a quiet profile with some fans on a quiet curve and others off completely, a full power profile with every fan on full and then a profile somewhere in the middle. I could then use the system tray app to quick flick between profiles in one go and all fans would change to their settings for that…

  6. Sound integration

    It would be awesome if the cam software had a setting purely for listening to music that would detect the BPM and other general of rhythm beats and then while using other regular Hue settings, dim the lights or even run through separate custom music light shows in sync with the music

  7. Screenshot in game + fps limiter

    Hi, i love your program, so I disabled all others (because of collisions)

    S I am missing screenshot feature:
    a) set a folder for images
    b) set a key for screenshots
    c) choose if overlay should be on screenshot or not (optional, convenient, not necessary)
    d) save a screenshot named by exe and date (something like "witcher3 2016-05-05 23:59:59" )

    Also, FPS limiter would be nice (it helps in some games with stuttering).

    Both of these features I could use in afterburner/rivaturner combo, but I would prefer to use single app, which is your target usage I believe, so please,…

  8. When your Wallpapers Cycle to other wallpapers the Hue+ system pick's that up and trys to match the current wallpapers color with the LED's

    Its simple wallpaper changes hue+ identifies the most common color in the picture and adjust accordingly , this is for people who have a lot of wallpapers and like to cycle thru them but also want the PC lights to match the current wallpaper

  9. More customizations for FPS Overlay

    I'd like to chose a border color for the overlay text because sometimes when the color is too bright on a bright bachground is nearly impossbile to read it.

    And would be a good thing to let users chose how info are shown and the position for each one (I like to have the FPS counter in the top right corner and GPU / CPU stats in the top left corner) just like HWInfo + RTSS do, they let you customize EVERYTHING of the OSD also units and names.

    Eric Lam responded

    Hey there, thanks for the suggestion. We can definitely look into adding more features into the overlay text.

  10. HUE+ Audio EQ mode - Each LED should have its own frequency range and volume for more reactiveness

    If each LED on the strip were assigned to a different frequency range on the EQ and given the same 1-8+ levels of color for volume, it would add an entirely different element to the reactiveness to audio and (especially on EDM where it's largely at full volume) be more than just a full-volume color bar that's barely moving, which is what the Audio setting really does now. Being able to adjust the sensitivity as well would be nice in all areas of the audio setting-I know it's BETA, but this would totally make it perfect, especially the EQ part.

  11. More precise control over fan speed for Grid+ V2

    I have 2x Noiseblocker E-Loop B12-4 fans (speed: 2400 RPM ±10%, Voltage Range: 3.3 - 12.0 V DC, Input Current: 0.32A, Input Power: 3.84W, Connection: 3-pin) and 2x Noiseblocker E-Loop B14-3 fans (speed: 1400 RPM ±10%, Voltage Range: 4.0 - 12.0 V DC, Input Current: 0.19A, Input Power: 2.28W, Connection: 3-pin) all connected to the Grid+ V2 fan controller.

    Currently, the CAM software (v3.1.2) allows us to change the value of the fan speed when creating a new custom mode curve by increments of 5%. Any chance you can, instead, let us increase that value by increments of 1%? Even…

  12. Better GPU fan control in cam 3.1

    In the latest version of Cam 3.1, the GPU overclocking tool has limitations with the gpu fan even with manual or custom setting it wont go bellow 40% fan speed yet with MSI afterburner i can have it from 20%(0speed) to 100%, also an option to disable this so that if i have issues with your overclocking tool i can use Afterburner without conflict.

    Hi guys,
    With version 3.1.2, CAM will not override your BIOS settings. If you change your fan profile, you can always revert to the BIOS setting by clicking on “Reset Settings”. We are looking into allowing fan percentages lower than 40%.

  13. Please allow us to control fan speed based on "any highest" temperature.

    CAM currently allows me to set my fan speed based on one of LIQUID, CPU *or* GPU.

    The Kraken is the main air-inlet to my case, I would like to be able to increase the fan speed when *any* of the above increases in temperature (preferably with 3 graphs).

    Currently if I select GPU temperature then I could be running CPU-intensive tasks without adequate cooling (and vice-versa).

    I CPU/GPU combo would be good enough (coolant temp is more controllable).

  14. Random LEDs on Hue+

    Could you add a profile that will cause random LEDs on a channel to flash/change color? I'm trying to create a "sky" effect for the top of my case and I'd like to have lightning.

  15. Notifications - Criteria needs to be true for x seconds option

    hey,

    it would be great if there would be a option for the notifications which sets that the notification will only get send if the temp/load is over that value for X seconds.

    My CPU temp jumps over 80 for a second sometimes and the notifications about that are getting annoying.

  16. Combine Presets

    I would love to combine smart mode with presets. For example, if i reach 70° it starts to strobe in red or maybe "it takes fire" with candlelight preset.

    This is a really good suggestion. We’ll take these into consideration as we add more variety to the lighting modes.

  17. Give us an option to set the pattern speed in HUE+ according to the GPU/CPU load

    I think it would be nice to have an option in HUE+ where you can make it so the "interval" value on HUE+ (or maybe brightness for those profiles that have a fixed color) depends on our GPU / CPU load. For example:

    CPU/GPU load at less than 10%: Pattern stopped / lights off
    CPU/GPU load at 10-30%: Interval: Slowest
    CPU/GPU load at 30-50%: Interval: Slow
    CPU/GPU load at 50-70%: Interval: Medium
    CPU/GPU load at 70-90%: Interval: fast
    CPU/GPU load at 90-100%: Interval: fastest

    Maybe add a "check every X seconds" so users won't turn crazy because their lights go…

    Hi,
    Sorry for the late response. This is a great idea and we will add the feature in an update soon!

  18. Please port to Linux!

    It wouldn't be that hard. You're ignoring a potentially huge influx of customers that Linux support would bring. It already seems like a great software, and I can imagine only that a Linux version would be even greater. Thanks.

  19. Universal Dimming for Hue+

    I've noticed moving a color on the spectrum to the darker end dims it but basically keeps it the same color, with this in mind, it would be nice if you can add a universal dimmer that does this so you don't have to create custom profiles and go through each color moving them toward the bottom. Convenience!

  20. Fully Customisable LEDs on HUE+

    It would be great if they made it so there was an interface you could make your own LED patterns on. (Or at least making it open source so techy people could do it - idk if this is already a thing)

    This could be expanded by being able to share your patterns with other cam users.

    There is LOADS of potential in this product. I would love to see a subreddit with lots of active users contributing their new patterns.

    From NZXT point of view - if they had a page on their website where users could share patterns,…

    Hi Adam,
    Sorry for the very late response. We are considering opening up the SDK so we can have users program their own modes and share with other users. This project will require some time to build out and we currently have other higher priority tasks we are working on. However, I can tell you that we have more cool modes coming, especially for gamers.
