    Which plug-in(s) do you use?

    I'm getting back into home automation after a long dry spell and upgraded to HS2. I'm wondering which plug-ins are the most popular so I can decide whether I'll probably use them and purchase one by one, or should just upgrade to HS2 Pro and be done with it. :-)

    Aside from my upgrade decision I thought this might be a pretty interesting thread on it's own.

    Please reply with a list of plug-ins you're actively using and perhaps a brief description of its/their usage. I'm also interested in knowing what OS you're using and CPU speed/RAM of the host hardware. Also if anyone is using HomeTroller.

    To summarize:

    1. What plug-in(s) are you actively using?
    2. What is your HomeSeer's host OS, CPU speed and RAM? Is system response snappy or a a little sluggish for your taste?
    3. What is your HomeSeer host hardware? Homebrew PC, HomeTroller, etc.?

    Thanks!

        I use ACRF and of course all my own plugins (see signature).

        The most useful to me is the ACRF plugin, and the plugins I also use a lot are the SIP Connector plugin, and the Script Connector. I have the script connector client installed on all computers in the house (quite a lot)
