I'm sure I reported on this last year or the year before, but the question keeps coming back to me – twice this week, in fact: How do you link a second Philips Hue Bridge to your Philips Hue account? For example, Paul writes to me in an email: “I have a holiday home in which I operate a second Hue Bridge.
I actually didn't think it would be such a big deal: Philips Hue wants to make registration with an account for the in-house system mandatory. I have always used Philips Hue with an account, but many of you actually don't want to. In a small survey, more than 60 percent of the participating readers said they would prefer to use the Hue system without an account.
Back in February 2023, I published an article with the headline “Philips Hue soon only usable with an account? Today another news follows, where I unfortunately have to leave out the question mark in the headline. As Philips Hue has now confirmed, the use of the system will soon only be possible with an account.
