Comments about Rediform® National Side Punched Analysis Pads, 4-Column:
I installed the Staples (made by Linksys) Hub and one of these outlets on my home network. Setup was very simple and fast. You just connect the Hub to a free router port, download the StaplesConnect app, power up the hub, and follow the instructions from the app.
I discovered one flaw. This is only a problem if you have just a single device connected to your hub. To move the hub to another network, after pairing the outlet, I reset the hub to factory default settings (using the app). I then tried the same set-up procedure on the second network. While the hub was fine, I could not connect to the outlet. The hub could not see it. It turns out I needed to delete the outlet (and all other devices) from the hub BEFORE resetting to factory default. As far as i can tell there is absolutely no way to delete the outlet after resetting the hub if you have just one device to connect to the hub. It's a catch-22 situation.
To solve the problem, I got another outlet switch, paired it to the hub and then deleted all connected devices, then re-paired the original outlet. I was going to return the second outlet but decided to keep it. They both work perfectly so far. One is connected to a solinoid switch which allows me to turn on my sprinklers from my phone and the other is used to turn on lights in an outside building from my house.
