Poll: How many Hue lamps are you currently using?

Take part and vote now

Shame on me: Last year I actually didn't ask you how many Hue lights you are currently using. The start of 2023 should be reason enough for us to take a look.

The last time I asked you how many Hue lamps you currently use was in February 2021. At that time, 26 percent of readers had five or fewer Hue lamps in use, but over 30 percent had more than 30 lamps.

In the past year, Philips Hue has brought numerous new products onto the market, so some of you have certainly stocked up a little. In my house, there are currently 78 Hue lamps in use, distributed over two Hue Bridges. I have not counted the lamps that I have only coupled for test purposes and do not use in everyday life. How does it look for you? I'm looking forward to your votes and comments.

How many Hue lamps are you currently using?

Please only count your lamps in this survey and not the connected accessories. However, you are welcome to write in the comments below which switches and sensors you use. I currently use 11 dimmer switches, 6 Hue wall switch modules, 3 Friends of Hue switches, 1 Hue Smart Button, 6 motion sensors and 1 outdoor sensor.

    1. How did you add them to the single hub?
      I have 12 accessories and if I try to add another dimmer it gives me an error when I try to configure the button behaviour and I can only have the default function

    2. Not sure why you are hitting a limit at 12. Bridges claim 50 items can be controlled…I hit 61 before I added a second bridge.

    3. To Gabbo :

      In the beginning I had some issues…then I played with the Zigbee channels and selected channel 25 where no issues .. Could be the reason

      MAybe try other Zigbee channels

  6. 64 Hue Lights (Including 14 Signe Gradients, 2 TV Gradients, 4 Gradient Light Strips, 4 Light Strips, 4 Signe, 2 LightGuide Bulbs, 2 Gradient Bars, 6 Recessed, 2 Bloom, 1 Iris, 2 BR30, and the rest are White Ambiance Filaments and 1600 lm ST19s Color bulbs with quite a few inactive or unused bulbs in storage.
    5 Switches/Dimmers
    4 Motion Sensors
    2 Bridges
    1 Lutron Aurora
    1 Sync Box
    4 Lutron PICO controllers via HomeBridge on HomeKit

    The rest of my smart home uses Lutron Caseta dimmers.

  7. 34 lamps – a combination of bulbs, strips and the bloom.
    Then there are 4 smart plugs (3 attached to lamps), and a smart button.

  8. 162 lights and 24 accessories spread out on multiple bridges. I have even a 3 of their old wall switches that was sold even before Hue was launched that are still in use.
    I have had many of these lights for years and so far only 3 has broken down and needed to be replaced. +20pcs GU10 are even used outdoors with no problem.

  9. How are you all getting round the 12 accessories limit on the hub?
    13 dimmer switches & motion sensors & friends of the switches?
