Plugin


 

A Plugin is a piece of software that acts as an add-on containing a group of functions that you can "plug in" to another software – hence the name "Plugin".

Sometimes referred to as "extensions", "add-ins" or "add-ons" they help make the base software do something that it doesn’t normally do by itself.

In a Home Automation system Plugins can extend functionality or add new features to your controller, making it easier for you to add new technologies to your system without the hassle of writing your own software code.
