We’ve just released a new update to Staples Connect, packed with lots of new features, devices, and performance improvements. Here are some of the things you can look forward to in Staples Connect 1.6.

Modes are here!


Modes let your home stay in sync with you. Whether you’re Home, Away, Sleeping, or on Vacation, your home will behave just like you would. Here’s how you can set up your Home Mode to greet you when you walk in the door after work each day.

D-Link Hub Migration Tool


You can replace your Linksys hub with the new Staples Connect hub powered by D-Link using the easy-to-use migration tool now available in the app.

New Devices Added

We’ve added the LG Zigbee Bulb and the Centralite 3-Series ZigBee Lamp Module to the Device Catalog. The LG Zigbee Bulb will instantly create a warm and welcoming environment with its traditional yellowish light and save you money in the process. The Centralite Lamp Module will give you control over your lights from anywhere.
