Well I purchased one of these and I'm trying to install it. I've noticed a number of issues. Drivers are imposable to get, they are difficult to find on the trickle star site and the drivers are actually hosted on an unrelated file site. The instructions could fit on one page it says to download the drivers, install them. And nothing else... The USB Stick does not have any control software with it. You will have to buy one of 4 programs to use it. These programs run around $100+ The USB Stick is listed as working for HomeSeer, I got the $140 HomeSeer 2.3 I have followed all the steps and I can not use it. There is no instructions or help for using it with this or others programs. To summarize this device may be useful for someone with a double background in programing and electrical engineering, the average customer can't use this. I would not recommend using this. I've heard good things about the Z-STICK-S2 and the Z-toller

Works fine. I deducted one star because the device doesn't report as much information about itself as I could have hoped (manufacturer code, for example, which would allow the controlling program to identify this controller specifically). But it's fine.

Works perfectly. The software takes a little bit of work to get installed and working correctly but once that's done it does every thing I need.
