Does anyone have hands-on experience with Staples Connect?
How does it compare to ST? On the surface, it looks quite similar - a $99 hub, free iPhone/Android app, no service fees. Supports Z-Wave and Lutron proprietary “Clear Connect RF” protocol (433 MHz, I believe). Does not have built-in Zigbee support, but apparently can talk to some 3-rd party devices, e.g. Philips Hue (over TCP/IP, I presume).
The hub is manufactured by Linksys, but there’s not much info on their support page:
