Free? Upgrade? You heard correctly, but only Logitech Harmony owners will gain this benefit. The company has just announced that a few of its most popular hub-compatible products are getting a boost with smart home control capabilities.

logitech-harmony-ultimate-homeIt’s a smart move that will surely benefit consumers as well as Logitech. With the vast and growing number of ‘smart’ devices for the home, it’s easy for consumers to feel frustrated with fragmentation and having to use a separate app for everything. Any company that wants to make it long-term in the smarthome market knows that execution is key, so it’s all about the software.

The release of this software upgrade will provide the Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard, Harmony Smart Control, and Harmony Ultimate Home with the same functionalities as the recently-released Logitech Harmony Home Hub. Now, Logitech Harmony users will be master and commander of the living room area as well as the rest of the home.

With a few quick touches, these Logitech Harmony devices will be able to adjust lighting, thermostats, alarms, sensors, security cameras, and more. This expanded compatibility includes (but is not limited to): SmartThings, Philips Hue, Nest, Lutron, Honeywell, IFTTT, and more. And with the mobile app for smartphones and tablet, everything is controllable even when you’re outside of the home.
