The Staples Connect Hub
For $99, this simple-looking control hub promises to wrangle all of your smart devices into a single, unified system.
Zonoff, the platform-provider for Staples Connect, has partnerships with Honeywell, Philips, and Yale, among others.
The hub features a minimal design, and can be set up within minutes.
Plug and play
Just plug in the hub's power cord, then connect it to your router via Ethernet cable. You might never need to mess with the thing again.
Zonoff partnered with Linksys to manufacture the hub's hardware.
Staples is angling to be the definitive smart home solution; we'll see if that $99 price point is attractive enough to beat out the $299
