Can you use multiple remotes with a single bridge to control separate lights?

Yep I've got a few of these around the house
Yes you can, I ve not tried more than 6 switch per bridge though. There is a limit if you use motion sensors and switches.
I can use the hive hub instead because they both use the zigbee protocol?
Same price at John Lewis also with 2 year warranty.
Thanks, been waiting for a price drop
I usually rinse their warehouse dealage of HUEs

I don't believe so - specific to Hue Hub

I've read the limit is 50 accessories per Hue Hub. This includes bulbs, sensors, switches, etc, combined.

Can everything this does not just be done from the app?

It's 50 lights and 10 accessories.

There are some 3rd party apps that allow you to increase the number of accessories. My understanding is this is because each dimmer takes a number of 'program slots', for example press once for setup a, twice for setup b, etc. The third party apps allow you to only use the slots that you need.

Yes, but physical switches are useful in many ways, especially in a kitchen.

Doesn't work out in this way in reality. I filled a bridge with a mix of bulbs, switches and sensors but never got close to 50. It was the rules, routines and effects which took up additional space. It became very restrictive so I bought a second bridge in the end.

Can these switches be used with Yeelights somehow? Perhaps using IFTTT (which supports Yeelights I think)?

No. Hue cannot be used as a trigger in IFTTT. Which is a source of great annoyance.

No, this is a Zigbee device. Logitech Pop or FLIC might be what you want.

If you have a phone with NFC, then you could also consider using NFC stickers. Although, that relies on you having your phone on you, so not quite as convenient

Well technically they can be but its not the technical faint hearted -> zigbee2mqtt.io/

Yes but there are 5 of us in our house and people don’t always carry phones around. It also confuses guests if they light switch is missing.

I had this problem and had to start deleting custom scenes and some default scenes in rooms to add extra stuff.

I have 7 sensors and 7 switches and 40 bulbs

Silly question but can you use Philips hue bulbs with normal switch. Prefer having a simple switch like i currently have
I’ve not had great experience with IFTTT but did find IFTTT triggers were so slow and unreliable I didn’t pursue for any kind of light control

Yep... But kinda defeats the object

As StaceyJohn says, this would defeat the object of the Hue bulbs. The socket needs to be on all the time so the bulb can get power to be able to receive commands from the phone / remote.

I wanted physical switches on the walls still in the rooms i have Hue bulbs so just bought these from Amazon which cover the traditional lightswitches, and hold the Hue remotes.

Also available from John Lewis for £14.39, if you prefer giving them your patronage instead of Amazon.

Gutted, took too long contemplating this and now back up to £17. Still the same price at JL as above post but suspect not for long!
It's still/back at £14.39.

Do you have to have battery power? I'm installing a loft room from scratch so want to plumb into the mains, not have to install a standard light switch and then have to replace batteries.

They're remote controls that can be stored on the wall, rather than wall switches. But it's not like you're replacing batteries every two weeks. I've got ten of these on my house. Some I've had for years. They use coin cell batteries and they're all still on 100%.

Yep batteries last for years as they only use power when transmitting commands and zigbee is extremely low power.
