  • You need a bridge. Without one, a bulb it will behave as a very expensive "dumb" bulb that goes only from full off to full on with the light switch.

  • No. All bulbs have to be connected to a hub as supplied in the starter pack. Also note that you cannot 'link' starter packs or transfer bulbs from one hub to another.
