New to HK – what about all my previous accessories?

New to HK – what about all my previous accessories?

Hi everyone – I recently moved back to the apple ecosystem. You played Homekit and used my Apple TV as a hub, I think? So far I have had to buy all the new plugs that work with HomeKit. The more important issue is that I have about 15-20 Hue bulbs throughout the house and in unattainable places, as well as some Hue switches and Lutron switches. Less concerned with the thermostat and the things I’ve always controlled from their native apps. Anyway, I’ve had them for years and I don’t have boxes for any of them. When I go to add to HomeKit, it wants an 8-digit code … Am I just unlucky with all my previous devices? How does one go when one already has a fairly large collection of “smart” accessories throughout the house? Thanks for any help! PS HomeKit was infinitely better and more reliable than SmartThings – so I hope this transition is possible, otherwise there are too many things to give up and I should continue to use ST fml)
