We’ve just released a new update to Staples Connect, packed with a lot of new features, devices, and performance improvements. Here are some of the things you can look forward to in Staples Connect 1.5.
Control your home from anywhere by pressing a button on your UP24 band by Jawbone. There’s no need to pull out your phone. It’s instant control.
We’ve added the Fibaro Flood Sensor and the Linear Garage Door Opener to the Device Catalog. The stylish Fibaro Flood Sensor detects temperature, water, and tampering, and the Linear Garage Door Opener lets you open your garage door straight from your phone or an Activity.
Custom push notification actions€€_
You can customize your Activity push notifications so that they open to a specific page in Staples Connect when you tap on them. This means that clicking your “Kids home from school” notification can open the camera near the front door. It’s easy to create convenience for yourself.
Take a Tour€€_
Even if you don’t have a hub, you can still get in on the fun! Try out Staples Connect with the Take a Tour feature on the home screen of the app.
D-Link hub compatibility€€_
The new D-Link hub is hitting stores this fall, and you’ll be able to use the D-Link or Linksys hubs when you update to this version of Staples Connect.
