Staples Connect and GE ZWave Switch Review and Installation

Figured I’d put up a review / installation of my Staples Connect hub and GE ZWave, because there are virtually no videos out there reviewing the hub or the switches.

Connected Home and Home Automation : Staples Connect and GE ZWave Switch Review and Installation.

And no – The Belkin switch did not work with the staples connect. The range on it was abysmal and I actually returned it, both for the range and for the fact that I had to use another app just for that once switch. There are a few Z-Wave switches that do exactly what the Belkin switch does, but are compatible with the Staples Connect.

Thanks for the video review. Can you access your devices through staples connect while you are away from home?

RR Market says:

hey how many wires does it require to connect the switch, my home only have 3 and one of them is the neutral?

Thanks for sharing Bri. I had done the SmartThings KickStarter a few years back now and sadly when I finally got to trying to set it up, the tech was no longer in sync with the software and I couldn’t get a single item connected. This definitely seems like a good alternative. You should check out the Philips Hue bulbs next.
