Logitech Harmony Smart Control review

 

In the age of ubiquitous Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, it remains a minor scandal that home theater devices continue to heavily rely on ancient IR (infrared)-based remote controls. With no clear replacement standard in sight, companies tend to stick with IR in...

The Logitech Harmony Smart Control is a unique universal-remote system that makes it possible to control eight devices -- including the PS3 and Wii -- using your iPhone or Android phone or the included simple remote, which communicates with the...

Harmony's setup can take a lot of initial work and requires some tech savvy. The included remote only has three dedicated activity buttons, which isn't enough for many home theaters. And the option to control your devices via a smartphone is cool, but...

The Logitech Harmony Smart Control combines RF functionality and smartphone control in an affordable universal-remote package, but the complexity of the initial setup will burden some buyers.

Logitech Harmony Smart Control

 

Although we try to go into every new accessory review with a clean, product-specific slate, it was hard to look at Logitech's new iOS-ready universal remote control system Harmony Smart Control ($130) without recalling the last few Harmony remotes...

Logitech Harmony Ultimate and Logitech Harmony Smart Control announced

 

Swiss-based computer peripherals manufacturer Logitech is back this time around, and they have a couple of devices for you to go through which should make life a whole lot easier and convenient, especially when you are one with so many different...

It does not matter whether you have finally decided to fall back on the Logitech Harmony Ultimate or the Logitech Harmony Smart Control, both of these devices will feature Logitech’s new Harmony Hub and Harmony Smartphone App that paves the way for...

Logitech Harmony Smart Control review

 

The Harmony enables you to control your TV via your iPhone - read our review and see if it's up to scratch.

When we first heard about the Logitech Harmony, we were very excited about the concept of controlling our home cinema devices using our iPhones, however it seems the concept was better than the execution. While the Harmony has serious potential and its...

Logitech Harmony Smart Control

 

We reviewed the Logitech Harmony Touch not too long ago, which is Logitech's semi-touch-based remote control. This time we will take a look at their Harmony Smart Control, which takes the full step (almost) to being touch-based. Just like the Harmony...

Harmony Smart Control will let you control your entire living room from your smartphone – or smartphones – and it is so simple that everyone can use it. Instead of implementing everything in a power-hungry remote, Logitech has moving all the processing...

Great Remote Option for Cord Cutters

 

I purchased a hub approximately a year ago. I've found that it works great with a variety of devices. I signed up for Playstation Vue six months ago. The Harmony Hub and Harmony app made watching PSVue on my PS3 much less of a hassle.

Works effectively with a wide variety of devices

Set up could be a little confusing for some

Suits my needs + more

 

This thing is brilliant!

Product support (including bluetooth), customisation, remote/phone command responsiveness, remote control feel/design.

Syncing with Harmony server can be slow

Logitech does it again! Simply the best remote on the market!

 

Logitech continues to impress with an updated version to the Harmony Ultimate. Let me mention I have owned now 6 different Harmony remotes for my home theater set up and I will never buy anything else. They are the most impressive and intuitive devices...

Easy to program and controls all devices

Price a bit steep

Consumer review (cnet.com)

Poor WiFi connectivity. Included remote also buggy.

 

On paper, this seems like a nice gadget to be able to keep components inside a cabinet and control multiple device and actions. In reality, it is highly flawed. It will not stay connected to a home network and will eventually stop trying even through a...

RF with included remote works fairly well. It learns the actions you teach it, but can often get confused.

The WiFi on this device is downright awful. It will connect initial, but disconnects itself overnight. This is most certainly a known issues to Logitech as you can find countless other similar complaints in user forums, yet Logitech had no solution.
