Logitech has announced the expansion of its award-winning universal remote control lineup with the Logitech Harmony Ultimate and the Logitech Harmony Smart Control. Both products feature Logitech’s Harmony Hub and Harmony Smartphone App.
The Harmony Hub controls infrared devices inside closed entertainment cabinets without the need to point at them. It also features the ability to control and access game consoles from your universal remote or smartphone via Bluetooth. The Harmony Hub takes home control a step farther with the ability to program Philips Hue lights to desired brightness and color.
The Harmony Smartphone App turns your iOS or Android phone into a universal remote, giving you personalized control of up to eight devices from anywhere in the house using the smartphone you already own.
“We’ve elevated the universal remote to the next level, taking a personalized approach to home entertainment,” said Joerg Tewes vice president of Logitech’s digital home business group at Logitech. “Furthermore, our Harmony product line is no longer just about entertainment access – we’ve designed the Logitech Harmony Ultimate so you can also control your home’s lighting. Now you can tune the TV, start a movie and adjust your lights to set the mood, with the touch of your finger.”
The Logitech Harmony Ultimate and Smart Control are compatible with more than 225,000 home-entertainment devices and more than 5,000 brands.
These new products join the Logitech Harmony Touch to complete the Logitech Harmony remote lineup. The Harmony Ultimate and the Harmony Smart Control is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe in May 2013. The Logitech Harmony Smartphone App will be available for download from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
