Malvern, Pa. — Zonoff expanded the selection of Wi-Fi security cameras supported by its DIY white-label home-control and automation platform, which is sold by Staples under the Staples Connect brand.
Two of three new cameras are available in Staples stores and the retailer’s website. Staples also sells the three other cameras supported by Zonoff. All six cameras are made by D-Link.
The new models available through Staples are the DCS-7010L HD Mini Bullet Outdoor IP camera, at $331, and the DCS-6010L 360 Degree IP camera, also at $331. The third new camera is available on D-Link’s website. It is the $179 DCS-2330L Outdoor HD Wireless Network Cloud camera.
The cameras, like other Zonoff-compatible home-control products, can be monitored and controlled by computer via the web as well as by the Staples Connect iOS and Android apps running on mobile devices. The mobile devices connect via Wi-Fi or cellular to a home’s broadband-connected Staples Connect hub, which incorporates multiple wireless technologies to control different home systems.
The hub also enables different systems to talk to one another so users can create macros that control multiple systems at once.
Compatible products include light switches and dimmers, motorized shades, lamp modules, thermostats, door locks and other products from such companies as Lutron, Philips, GE, Honeywell and Yale.
Staples installed displays for its Staples Connect system in 30 stores last November and plans to expand availability of its Zonoff-platform system to an unspecified number of additional stores.
