Introduction to the iOS/OS X SDK.

The iOS/OS X Hue SDK is a set of tools that are designed to make it easy to access the Hue system through the Hue Wi-Fi network connected bridge and control an associated set of connected lamps. The aim of the SDK is to enable you to create your own applications for the Hue system. The tools are provided with documentation for the SDK and example code.

To develop for Hue you require the Philips Hue Personal Wireless Lighting System.
