I am new to the forum and do not yet have Control4 installed (new home build to be completed in a couple of months).
I am a huge fan of Phillips Hue Color bulbs and we are planning to sub out for the most part smart C4 switches with Phillips Hue lights. However, I have just learned that the Hue Bridge can only support 50 hue lights. We will have more, at least that was the plan. Speaking to Phillips you have to have an Alexa/Hue dedicated to a group of lights. So if you want to turn off the exterior lights, and you are not in the area of the Alexa controlling the Exterior lights, you have to either use the app or walk to the room with the Alexa...
I am hoping that our Control4 system will be able to manage more than one Hue bridge, making all Hue lights in the house available for scenes and commands (preferably one command) to Alexa, regardless of what Alexa you are standing near. I see there are drivers, but I know nothing about this. Something about Extra Vegetables??? Our Control4 installer does not have alot of experience with Hue. I have seen on this forum it can be a pain to control more than 50 lights. But that someone at least was able to control the light colors based on the date (IF it is 10/31 THEN turn lights to orange) - WHICH IS COOL - but some lights drop off...
I hope this is not a deal buster for us and being able to add more than 50 lights. Looking at our electrical plan it MAY be possible to limit to 50 bulbs, but ideally we may be more like 70+
Also, wondering if anyone has used the new Phillips Econic Exterior light and how it looks.
thanks in advance
