Step 2: Next, you need one of our Z-Stick USB adaptors which simply plugs into any available USB port. This allows your Z-Wave devices to "talk" to your PC.
Step 3: The software! Our recommendation is InControl HA Server Pro. If you've ever shopped around for home automation software, you'll know that you can literally spend hundreds of dollars on this. What's great about InControl is that it's a fraction of the cost of other similar software solutions. It's also simple to use, which is great if you're a beginner, but powerful enough to drive even the most complex home automation systems.
