BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - A high school student from Bowling Green has created an app for iPhones and iPads that allows the user to control a wireless lighting system for the home.

Ethan Gill is a 17-year-old senior at Gatton Academy and says he created his app, called HueHueHue, to make operating Philips Hue lights simpler.

Western Kentucky University, where Gatton Academy students study for college credit in their junior and senior years, says the lights can be remotely controlled with a smart device. But Gill says unlocking the phone and waiting for the app to load took longer than using a regular light switch.

With Gill's app, the lights can be toggled with a simple action on an iPhone or iPad, and the app can run even if the device's screen is locked.
