Multiple Hue Hubs for connectivity or max number of bulbs?

I am pretty close to the maximum number of bulbs that Hue says it supports.. Is it possible and/or recommended to use more than one Hue Hub and will this work with the Hue plugin? Would any improvements be expected in terms of connectivity of the Zigbee system with more than 1 Hub?

Hi.

The Hue Lights plugin only supports 1 Hue bridge at a time. It's possible to duplicate the plugin, change the plugin ID by editing some files and use the duplicate plugin version to connect to and control another Hue bridge.

See this thread for details
