I finally got a new remote for my TV and I am so excited about it. Best buy sent me Logitech’s Harmony Elite and it is unbelievably cool. I’m familiar with Harmony remotes. I had a universal harmony remote before this one, and I was so impressed with how easy it was to program and how well it worked with the apps on my Smart TV.
Harmony and Alexa
What is so cool about this one is that now I can use the remote with Alexa and the two technologies are amazing together. It’s also compatible with Google Home.
There is something so great about being able to control all of my home entertainment with my voice. I love being hands free because it means, I don’t have to search for the remote when it goes missing and it will be easier to keep it out of reach of the children. Everything works with my voice. It’s awesome to tell my TV what to do.
My husband really likes the programmable events that you can initiate with a simple command. Event’s like Date Night, or Sports Night can incorporate multiple features including setting the channel, dimming the lights, and adjusting the sound system controls. This is really cool, because we like to have the lights just right and set the sound at “sleeping baby levels” for movie nights.
It’s like magic
The intuitive function of the Harmony Elite is so refreshing. I have seen a lot of people’s entertainment set ups with multiple remotes for different things, even when one of those is a universal remote. All that chaos vanishes with the one touch automation of Harmony Elites unified control of your expanding entertainment and smart home devices. The color touch screen and motion-sensing backlit keys make using the remote so much easier in the dark.
Over 270,000 entertainment and smart home devices work with Harmony Elite to make one-touch control super accessible straight out of the package. Receivers and Roku® media players, in addition to gaming consoles TV and cable all connect. Harmony Elite also works with lights, locks and thermostats and of course, Alexa..
It’s really amazing what we can do with Alexa using our new Logitech Harmony Elite. I have never been as excited about a TV remote before. For more info, go here.
