mainly NO but yes under specific circumstance. The LINK hub is apparently no longer made and the new bulbs have newer softwear that will not communicate with the link hub. If you can find older bulbs (and the boxes do not list which are the old style vs the new style) you can add to the hub. IF you get a newer bulbs you cannot sync it.

Yes, you have to buy more "kits" to expand the system. The packaging is old and all of the Zigbee/WINK lights that are available for single purchase are not compatible with this system as the firmware is old and no longer updated. If you want more than 2 lights, return the system and go with HUE or if you want true home automation get the WINK hub and buy as many bulbs from whatever manufacturer you Read More

The manufacturer states the limit of 128 devices per hub. This is must likely due to a Bluetooth networking limitation.

Answer: 
Yes, you can add many lights to a single Link hub and you can give each light a different name in the app. I have not been able to find out what the limit is. The Link hub only controls lights though. If you want to use the other compatible devices, you would have to upgrade to the Wink Hub ($50).

Answer: 
I'm running three lights at the moment. Two from this package and one from an amazon deal I bought a few months ago. I use the Staples Connect hub and app rather than the included Link or Wink hubs which are far inferior. I'm not sure if there's an upper limit on the number of bulbs that can be handled at once but adding additional lights is a breeze.

Answer: 
You can add almost any of the "smart Connected" lights to the hub that is included in the kit. However I purchased two of the same kit simply because they are the cheapest bulbs. I.E. 4 bulbs and two hubs for $50 vs 1 bulb at $15 each if purchased individually.

Answer: 
Yes! You can still operate the lights normally, but you have to make sure to get them back "on track" after manually using them or they will not work with any previous schedules you have setup in Wink.
For me - I have to turn the lamp switch 2x to get it reset for Wink to pick back up on the schedule.

Yes, but you may need to email SmartThings support and ask them to update your SmartThings Hub's ZigBee firmware in order to get the bulbs working. (This is what I had to do)
After the firmware update the bulbs work great with SmartThings Hub.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 109 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Old technology This is old technology. Not all lamps will communicate with the GE link (which is no longer made or supported.) May 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Automate your life This eliminated any arguments in my house of who left the lights on. I scheduled my exterior lights to turn on at sunset and on at sunrise. It even compensates for the changes in season. May 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A "Finisher" Pack -- And That's Okay Don't fool yourself: you won't be adding anything to this "starter" pack. Apparently, the bulbs/hub combination uses an older protocol that won't work with newer Link bulbs (I haven't tested this -- but read message boards). The hub itself is designed to work only for light bulbs -- for other home automation, you'd need a Wink hub. So, you are pretty much buying what's in this package -- no scaling up/expanding. That said, I am completely satisfied with the product: it works as advertised and meets the need that I tried to address with the purchase. And let's not forget that the price is right. One useful detail about the product that I didn't see in any reviews or in the product instructions: the bulbs will work just fine as regular bulbs in switched sockets (I use mine in floor lamps) -- without compromising their Wi-Fi functionality. You just have to remember to leave the switch on if you want to use the app -- and don't flick the switch repeatedly, as that's supposed to reset the Wi-Fi link. So, if you happen to use this product around people who appreciate the tactile feeling of a light switch, you will be okay. (To be a bit more clear about what my concern was: if the bulb is turned off via the app, you can still turn it on/off with the switch after that. After you turn the bulb on with a switch, you can revert back to using the app without any need for reprogramming.) May 4, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Couldn't get it to work Like the idea of this, but between two different people and two different units we could not get the wifi to pair with the link hub. Got a fast flashing blue LED and a slow flashing orange LED. No troubleshooting code for this. Instead I'm using the bluetooth bulbs from HomeBrite instead. Very happy with those. May 2, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lights are great, Hub is bad. I've been wanting to upgrade to a few smart items around the house and was attracted to the GE name. I bought the GE Link starter kit and within a few hours, I learned that I needed more. My main purpose for buying this was to put all of my outside lights on a timer since I forget to turn them off all of the time. Long story short, the GE Link hub is only compatible with "soft white" bulbs. Setup was easy and it worked great but I use "daylight" bulbs for my outdoor lights. I called customer service (WINK) and they suggested I get the WINK hub which is compatible with many many different products. WINK customer service was phenomenal, too. I'm returning my GE hub today and getting WINK. March 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by http://m.homedepot.com/p/GE-Link-Starter-Pack-Link-Hub-2-Link-A19-Light-Bulb-PLI Works God still haven't used the feature that lets you do settings for time to come on. Can be a little tricky setting up April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by amazing product I am able to control 3 lights per hub, so currently i own 3, they work with the same account. I've connected it around the house and have no issues at all getting it to work. April 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LINK hub will no longer work with new GE Link Bulbs (Feb 2016) I bought this 4 months ago. Worked great with the two bulbs that came with it. I bought two more bulbs to expand in and I could not sync them with the Wink app. Contacted Wink support and they informed me the company that manufactured the LINK hub for GE went out of business so it is not longer updated when new updates come out for the technology. This is a problem because the new LINK bulbs (bought in Feb 2016) have new technology that cannot sync with the older LINK hub. The bulbs that come with the box will work great but you will not be able to expand the system with the newer bulbs. Strongly recommend you look for something besides this if you think you will ever want to control more than the two bulbs that come in the box. Home depot should really stop selling these.
