Would anyone prefer to connect their Hue Hub to HomeBridge rather than directly to HomeKit?

Would anyone prefer to connect their Hue Hub to HomeBridge rather than directly to HomeKit?

Okay, so HomeKit decided to do the biggest HomeKit thing ever and destroy my entire set-up if anything that wasn’t an Apple product stopped responding. After several tests between switching HomeKit hubs, testing hubs, etc. I decided to eliminate everything. However, it provided an opportunity to try something new. I removed all my Tradfri lights from the Tradfri hub and moved them all to the Philips Hue hub. Somewhat painless process, but I did it and now my Philips wireless switches work better !!! I also tried Google Home and it seems a bit too limited. However, because HK can’t detect devices that the hub can’t update, I’m forced to use HomeBridge, which I should have done a long time ago. *** Does anyone prefer to connect their Hue Hub to HomeBridge than directly to HomeKit? ***
