Orbi and hardwired connections

Since I only have one ethernet port on my Orbi router (my older router had 4) how do I connect my Hue hub, my Arlo hub and my samsung Smarthings hub? Would a splitter work?  Any thoughts?

 

TIA

You can always attach an external Non managed, non green ethernet Gb LAN switch to the back of the RBR and then connect other LAN devices to this switch. They make them starting with 5 ports, 8, 16, 24, 48 ports models. There inexpensive as well. 

Example:
