I have a new phone and I am not in the state where my Philips Hue is located.  Without being where the lights are, is it possible to connect my new phone?

I’m a snowbird who spends my winters in Florida & my summers in Canada. My cell phone carrier is here so I upgraded my phone upon my arrival home this week. All my apps & settings were ported over by my Gmail account but the Hue app required that I relink my hubs by pushing their buttons. Clearly that was easily done here but impossible to do in my Florida home. Now I’m no longer able to remotely control my Florida lights. This seems to be a major design flaw. Is there no way to Port over linked bridges to new devices or at least relink them remotely?
