Logitech Harmony Elite

 

The Logitech Harmony Elite is the most advanced universal remote you can buy without a custom installation, and comes with a hub that can control most of your smart home devices.

Tons of supported home entertainment and home automation devices. App control.

Expensive.

The Logitech Harmony Elite is the most full-featured remote control you can get without paying for a custom system, which tend to cost a lot more than the Elite's $350 price tag. It's still expensive, but you get a powerful remote control and...

Logitech Harmony Elite review

 

I'm a huge fan of Logitech Harmony remotes. They are my single strongest recommendation for anyone looking to make their home entertainment center easier to use. If you routinely juggle two or more remotes, the company's latest hub-based models are far...

The Logitech Harmony Elite is a unique universal-remote system that can control your entire home theater using your iPhone or Android phone or tablet, or the included remote, via the Harmony Hub. The touchscreen makes it more versatile than cheaper...

Significantly cheaper versions like the Harmony Home Control can do almost as much. The battery only lasts a couple of days per charge, so you'll have to remember to keep it in the charging cradle between uses.

The Logitech Harmony Elite adds a useful touchscreen to the best universal remote system around, but it's not worth the high price for most buyers.

Logitech Harmony Elite remote control review: About as good as a universal remote can be

 

This touchscreen remote can not only control every device in your home entertainment center, but also your lighting, your thermostat, and a whole lot more.

Extremely easy to set up and program ; Can manage both entertainment and connected-home devices ; Large touchscreen display, plus backlit physical buttons

Limited to controlling 15 A/V devices ; IR blasters not the best solution for an enclosed entertainment center ; Poor replacement for a Sonos controller

If you’re looking to control just a couple of A/V devices and you don’t live in a connected home, the Harmony Elite is much more hardware than you need. You’ll end up paying for features and power that you’ll never take full advantage of. On the other...

Logitech Harmony Elite universal remote review

 

Universal remote controls are a bizarre product category, because they solve a legitimate and substantial problem — the proliferation of really terrible remotes on your coffee table, one for each...

Ergonomically close to perfect ; Supports a nearly infinite array of devices out of the box

Screen is only so-so ; Requires more setup than a basic universal remote ; Expensive

Logitech Harmony Elite Review

 

Logitech's Harmony remotes are in a class by themselves. You'd be hard-pressed to find a universal remote that can do so much at this price. The $349 Harmony Elite is a further refinement of Logitech's previous remotes that makes every aspect of your...

Easy setup ; Intuitive interface ; Dedicated smart home buttons ; Works with huge number of devices

Heavier than previous version

If you have a lot of home entertainment and smart home gadgets that you want to control from one device, look no further than the Harmony Elite.

Logitech Harmony Elite

 

You've just got home. You've had a long, boring day. It's cold and dark outside. You just want to curl up on the sofa, turn up the heating, dim the lights and relax with some Netflix or mood music. The Logitech Harmony Elite will do all that at the...

Beautifully designed and easy-to-use remote ; Smart home and AV system control in one ; Excellent device support ; You can use your phone as well

ZigBee and Z-Wave support requires extra box ; Minor touchscreen issues ; No Apple HomeKit support

This is the missing link in any serious smart-home project.

Logitech Harmony Elite review

 

Logitech's been in the universal remote game for a long while now, and while many of its efforts have been solid, they've never been complete game changers. Enter the Logitech Harmony Elite remote, the latest flagship device in the Harmony line-up that...

Logitech's brand new top-of-the-line remote, the Harmony Elite, is the latest in the universal remote line-up, comprising of the hefty touchscreen and button-equipped remote itself, a charging dock and the Harmony Hub, a small little puck that shares...

While the Logitech Harmony Elite excels at replacing practically all of your remotes, it is pretty pricey. At £279.99, you'll need to really take your home entertainment seriously if you're going to make the most of it, as you need plenty of devices to...

Logitech's Harmony Elite is an essential piece of kit if you've got far too many remotes lying around and you want to consolidate them into one slick piece of hardware. It's smart, user friendly and its multi-device functions are a life-saver. It's...
