Fair warning, kids: lose a fully programmed Logitech Harmony Elite Remote Control, and you may be just a little bit screwed.
Don’t get us wrong, it isn’t because it’s a remote priced to admire but never afford. No, your “FML” bellow will stem from the fact that this is an omnifunctional controller designed to intuitively integrate control every remote-enabled device in your home into one peripheral.
From home entertainment to home management, the Logitech Harmony Elite combines infrared, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth coordination within the Harmony Hub – shockingly, not a FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC MacGuffin – with minutes of setup using the paired iOS or Android app. In addition to the Harmony Elite remote itself, the Harmony App also turns any iOS or Android device itself into a separate universal remote.
Long story short? From your home theater, television and video game consoles to automated locks, lighting, blinds, thermostats and more, if it can connect wirelessly to an internet signal of any kind, it can control just about any other “smart” device in your home. You can even pair several settings to complement your schedule, from leaving in the morning for work and school to coming home, settling in to enjoy a movie and going to bed at night.
