Logitech Harmony Ultimate Home

 

The Logitech Harmony Ultimate Home is the ultimate universal remote, able to control just about every digital device in your home.

Extensive device compatibility. Lots of control options. Support for a wide range of digital home devices.

Expensive. Hub needs an extender for Z-Wave and ZigBee compatibility. Requires a bit of a learning curve.

Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard

 

It might not have a conventional remote, but between a wireless keyboard with touchpad and smartphone/tablet app controls, the Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard can let you do almost anything with your home theater system from the couch.

Very flexible smartphone and tablet control of your home theater devices. Keyboard is useful for text input. Two USB receivers can work with both a PC and an entertainment device.

Requires a smartphone or tablet to configure. Keyboard touchpad isn't used with most entertainment devices.

Conclusion The Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard is an interesting twist on the idea of the universal remote, making text input much easier on the Xbox One, Roku 2, Apple TV, and other supporting devices. The keyboard itself is clunky for using as a...

Logitech Harmony Ultimate universal remote review

 

When you name a product the Ultimate, customers tend to have rather high expectations for it. But I can understand Logitech's rationale. In many ways the Harmony Ultimate is a dream remote, adding RF (radio frequency) and Bluetooth capabilities to last...

The Logitech Harmony Ultimate is a sleek universal remote with RF, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, IR, and a 2.4-inch color touch screen that recognizes some gestures; it's Web-programmable via Macs or Windows PCs, but can edit commands without having to connect to...

Expensive compared with Harmony Smart Control package; poorly placed "transport" buttons; lacks dedicated forward and reverse skip keys; rechargeable battery is not replaceable; takes significant time and effort to set up large, intricate home theater...

Despite its high price and a handful of drawbacks, the Logitech Harmony Ultimate is an impressive, feature-rich universal remote that's well worth the investment, particularly if you have a lot of components in your system.

Harmony Ultimate and Smart Hub review: Logitech outdoes itself with new remotes

 

Until now, Logitech's Harmony line has been the name in user programmable remotes. Now the company's back with three follow-up products, and they differ

Keeps physical and smartphone remotes in sync ; High-quality hardware, easy to program ; More reliable macros than hand-held IR remote

Relies mostly on IR, which is slow and unreliable ; Programming options aren't as expansive as we'd like ; No API for third-party app compatibility

The Hub is the greatest addition to the Harmony family to date. While it's still not the remote we dream of, it's easily the best user-programmable option available.

Logitech Harmony Ultimate

 

If you can get past the price tag, the Logitech Harmony Ultimate is the most powerful, simplest universal remote you can get.

Powerful. Easy to set up. Bluetooth and app support make the remote even more flexible.

Very expensive.

Logitech Harmony Ultimate Review: The Last Remote You’ll Ever Need

Logitech Harmony Ultimate Universal Remote Control

 

Evaluating Apple accessories used to be a straightforward process. Each accessory arrived as packaged hardware, worked the same on day one as on year two, and rarely integrated deeply with Apple's devices. Speakers made iPods and iPhones sound better,...
