Staples Connect lets you control lights, thermostats and more from all the brands of connected home products you trust. One app. One hub. The connected home made easy.
What's New in Version 1.7.7
No longer works with nest after nest eco mode came out
Nest just changed their thermostats home and away modes to just on or eco mode. Please update your app ASAP as the home and away options in the app are obsolete and don't work anymore. Very frustrating!

Nothing but errors so far and no innovation
When registering a new hub, it showed errors several times though eventually, registration completed.
When trying to add a Nest thermostat, it never succeeds and always times out.
The app crashed at least once.
So far, the hub and this app are useless.
Update, after trying several times from the computer to add the Nest, it finally worked but the integration with the Nest thermostat is superficial. Why not let the Nest trigger actions based on presence?
When trying to add a Z-wave dimmer, the app crashed and showed about a dozen errors and never successfully added the device. Yet another horrible experience with this product.
The app does not have a feature to define the order of manual activities and does not offer a feature to group activities.
It is disappointing that Staples is not an early adopter of HomeKit. The Staples Connect hub is closed making it impossible to integrate with other devices or services like a Harmony Remote, HomeKit, or IFTTT.
