    The BR30 Hue bulbs have a life expectancy of 15,000 hours. If you use these 3 hours/day, they should last 13+ years. They use just 8 watts for 630 lumens, so you will save quite a bit of money on electrical costs over the lifespan of the bulbs.

    If the original starter pack bridge breaks, you will need to link your old bulbs with the new bridge. This used to be difficult with the original bridge firmware and app, but is now easier. If you use the "Hue Lights" third-party app, your scenes are stored with the app, so you wouldn't lose your scenes or favorite colors. The order that you add bulbs is still important though. When you get a new bridge, add the bulbs in the same order as the original to preserve your light numbers. The everyhue.com website has a lot of posts on this topic.
