Logitech Harmony Companion review

 

In 15-odd years of reviewing TV and home theater equipment, the one thing I always tell people to buy is a "good universal remote." And by that I now mean the Harmony Companion, the best remote for the money I've ever used.

The Logitech Harmony Companion is a unique universal-remote system that makes it possible to control your entire home theater using your iPhone or Android phone or tablet, or the included simple remote, via the Harmony Hub. The remote is remarkably...

It's relatively expensive. The updated app can be somewhat buggy and frustrating to use. The included remote isn't backlit. It has only three dedicated activity buttons which support six activities, requiring a non-intuitive long-press for the...

The Harmony Companion delivers the best universal remote experience for the money, making your home entertainment center easier to use than ever.

It Just Works

 

Connected: Vizio M-Series Display + Pioneer Receiver + Roku box. I wanted to replace 3 Remotes with 1, and I wanted to not have to aim the Remote.

It Just Works

Remote Buttons are shallow, so less tactile

Finally a new universal that just works

 

I was hesitant to get started on the configuration of this, thinking back on my previous Harmony 550 that this remote is finally replacing. However, there was nothing to worry about. It was a breeze. I had everything up and running in 20 minutes - 8...

No infra-red, battery lasts a year, configuration a breeze

Logitech UI design, max 8 devices

2 hours of frustration

Lot's of potential, very poor execution

 

While I like the concept of this product, the execution was horrible. I spent hours trying to sync up different products but they never worked. I could get the TV and cable to turn on but only by using just the remote and pointing it at the TV, so it...

After working for 2 hours, the remote controlled my volume! for about 5 minutes

Everything else.

Excellent universal RF remote

 

Overall, this is the best universal remote that I've seen out there. It is easy to operate, and the review captures its high points and deficiencies very well. I will say that the app isn't as bad as it's made out to be in the review. I'd prefer to use...

RF enables efficient control of tucked-away components, blaster base station is small and easy to position, remote is light and easy to handle

Wish remote could fire IR in addition to RF and would be nice to have more activities (e.g., watch Netflix)

Great Remote

 

The previous commenter must have set his up wrong. I've used the Harmony Smart Control (the predecessor to the Home Control) for 2 years and it's worked flawlessly. This one has so far as well, but I haven't had the same amount of time to play with it....

By far the most reasonably priced RF remote on the market. Easy setup, great functionality

It can take some time to get the positioning of the hub just right. App crashes occasionally.

Makes Life Easier

 

Easy to use to control lights, tv, humax freesat unit & hi-fi unit and am now waiting to be able to control the Harmony Hub from Google Home.

Complex to set-up but worth persevering with

 

I wanted this so that I could voice control my Mac Mini, Sony TV and Sonos speakers using Amazon's Alexis Echo Dot. I have managed to do this but it was complex and convoluted to set-up. I had to use some intermediary software to act as a sort of...

Control heaven

 

I had done my research, Logitech's website lets you check this will control your equipment. I set it up from a Windows PC. Result brilliant 5 remotes -stored (remove the batteries!!) The only problem I had was that the TV needed ECO setting changed so...
