Can I use my old round-shaped Hue bridge together with the new square-shaped Hue bridge?

We recommend not to use the old round-shape Hue bridge in the same home as the new square-shaped Hue bridge after a bridge transfer, to prevent conflicts on the ZigBee network and third party apps.

 

Note: The old Hue bridge cannot be used as a ZigBee range extender like the Hue lights. You can use the old bridge to setup a Hue system in a friend’s home. We recommend not to use the bridge at your direct neighbors home, as this bridge could still be in range of your own ZigBee network.
