How Many Lights can a Single Hue Bridge Support?
Philips officials say that each Hue Bridge can control up to a maximum of 50 Hue bulbs, this can be a mixture of different bulbs, lamps and light strips, as well as switches such as the Hue dimmer, tap and motion sensors, however the maximum is 50 in total.
That being said some Hue users have reported being able to exceed this amount with someone posting that they have hooked up 63 bulbs to their bridge.

The recommended limit is 50 however the physical limit set on the bridge is 63.
If you need to add more than 50 bulbs then you would need to install and set up a second bridge at this time, although we hope Philips will make changes in the future to allow for more bulbs and items to be added to a single bridge. We don’t believe there is a limit to the number of bridges you can run.
While a common request is for this limit to be increased by Hue users, and with no reports of this happening anytime soon, it has been mentioned that this is tricky to do while ensuring it does not impact on the reliability and perfomance of Hue bulbs.
If you have bought the newer Bluetooth Philips Hue bulbs then there is no need for a bridge and this system can support up to 10 bulbs which connect to your Bluetooth enabled phone.
