TorrentGrabber v3 – Now with 100% more grabbing!

TorrentGrabber – check for your new TV show episodes and get them loaded to your Torrent Application automatically.. and get notified when they arrive!

I love all the free & legal content you can get from around the globe. I especially like when broadcasters and other sources put their content up for free so we can legally download it. What I don’t like is being bombarded with ads and other junk when I visit legal torrent site so I wrote TorrentGrabber to go off and automatically download the shows I like.

Belkin Wemo Control Plugin for InControl HA

InControl is my favourite Home Automation Software – if you are getting into anything Home Automated or ZWave related I do urge you to give their software a try.

Out of the box it supports Scenes (grouping multiple devices together) and scheduling (check out my article on cron scheduling though too if you already use InControl Scheduling) and has a bunch of features to make Home Automation easy.

InControlCMD – Command Line Control of InControl HA ZWave Devices

InControl HA from Moonlitz Software is my preferred Home Automation Software.

It supports a multitude of ZWave devices and, of late, has an extensible plugin system so you can incorporate other non-zwave devices into the fold and control them via InControl’s iPad, iPhone, Android & Windows Phone UI’s.

InControlCMD is a Command Line executable I wrote which allows you to turn devices on and off from the Command Line. This is especially handy if you want to script actions external to InControl but also incorporate controlling devices within InControl.
