Better than Vera, or IRIS (lowes)

By James

from Chicago

This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

Comments about Staples Connect Lighting Kit:

I started off my home automation with Vera a stand alone system that didnt rely on a third party to function... Ehhh items didnt pair correctly, locks had a long delay before activating... I then figured IRIS lowes pay service, if you have to pay for the service this must be a nice system! NOPE i couldnt even get my thermostat to pair, to even start playing around with it... waste of time... So one last go at it, i decided to try the Staples Connect system. Setup went well, my existing locks, thermostat, and ligh switches paired up nice and easy. Easy to use, no WINDOWS PHONE 8 App :-( but the mobile web based interface is usable... Free service... I just dont like that this system still runs through a third party service to work.... what happens if staples drops this system, or the third party isnt making money and calls it quits.... im stuck with hundreds of dollars of automation equipment.... But that aside, while everyone is in business this is by far the best Z-wave home automation system out of the three! (Vera, IRIS, Staples Connect)

After defect replaced, works great

Comments about Staples Connect Lighting Kit:

The start was slow going because the Linksys hub in the lighting starter kit was defective. The 800 number arranged for a replacement and the kit's modules were added quickly and easily. I now have five in-wall dimmers and two lamp modules, and all of my X10 products have been removed. (Still can't figure out how to use the Lutron lighting control device.) I anxiously await the addition of if-then logic to the control app.

so far so good

Comments about Staples Connect Lighting Kit:

easy to setup. Wish they said the website on the paper that came with the HUB (for those that do not have Android or iOS to get the app). I hope they come out with a Windows phone 8.1 app as well.

Connect with Wifi only works if your router is broadcasting the SSID. I can confirm this on a Netgear N600 as it will only connect through Wifi when the SSID is broadcasting. I do not like to broadcast my SSID. So for now it is connected by Ethernet. I hope they fix this in the future, so I can free up that ethernet port.

    Comments about Staples Connect Lighting Kit:

    I wanted to transition from X10 to Z-Wave for my automation system and the Staples Connect seemed like an economical way to start. I couldn't find many real reviews but figured I'd take a chance.

    I was able to connect the hub to my network (I used ethernet) without trouble.

    So far I've used the plug-in lamp module and pico remote from the kit.
    I've also added a Honeywell z-wave thermostat , a garage door tilt sensor, 3 door sensors, 4 carbon monoxide/smoke detectors, and 2 motion sensors.
    All added to the network and performed perfectly.
    I've got 8 dimmer switches, 2 water sensors, and 2 additional pico remotes on the way. I'm also going to add a deadbolt.

    The web interface has been intuitive and easy for setting up activities (called scenes in other z-wave systems).
    For example, I'm currently using the pico remote to control the lamp module. I've got 4 activities created (it took at most 2 minutes to set them up). The on button turns the light to 100% and the off button turns it off. The dimmer starts at 15% but the up and down buttons then brighten and dim as expected. The Favorite button in the center of the remote puts the light at 42%.
    On the thermostat I can see the temperature and setting, adjust it manually, have automatic activities that set the temperature to different values at different times, and created manual activities that can lower the temp when nobody is going to be home and raise it when we return.
    Making changes to activities is straightforward.

    I've got an Android phone (HTC One) and the app looks and acts like the web interface. The only thing the app won't do is let me create or modify activities. I've not yet loaded the IOS version of the app on my wife's iPhone 5 but will do so soon.

    I suspect that at some point I may want to create some more powerful activities (using if/then logic) and am hoping the software will evolve to allow more advance functions.
    I'd also love to see a geofencing feature that would track our phones and automatically adjust the thermostat, adjust lights, etc, when we come and go. Perhaps this is too much to ask of a $99 hub and software product with no recurring fees, but I can dream.

    Overall, if you are thinking of getting into Z-wave automation don't hesitate to get the Connect.
