Adding Hue bulbs to existing Bridge

Hello!

I’m a new Hue user and have found everything quite easy to set up, but I have a quick question (probably stupid) about adding new Hue bulbs to an existing Bridge. I need to add 4 bulbs to the Bridge, one of which I already own (leftover from the Starter Pack). It’s cheaper to get the other three via a new Starter Pack rather than buying them separately, so…

… can I assume that they’re not connected to the Bridge they come with in the box and that pairing them with my existing Bridge will be as much of a breeze as it was connecting all my other Hue products to it? In other words, can I connect a new Starter Pack to my existing one (and just keep the second Bridge for a rainy day)?

Thanks in advance for some much appreciated help.

Cheers,

Seb

I’ve not done this, but… I would absolutely expect your bridge to pick up on any new bulbs, regardless of what they were packaged with.

I would assume that to be the case. I don’t see why it wouldn’t work, regardless, as you say, of how and what they came packaged with.

but, as I’ve already ordered the Starter Pack, I assume we’ll find out soon. Thank you for your insight nonetheless.
