Harmony Logitech Remote controls

Having experimented with several solutions, I can highly recommend the Harmony Logitech remote controls, especially when complemented with the Harmony Hub.

The Harmony Hub

The key component of the solution is the Harmony 'Smart Hub' that not only allows for a seamless installation procedure, but also allows for future updates and IP-based controls such as Philips Hue or Lifx LED lighting systems. The hub allows you to start doing whatever you want to do with a single button click that will automatically configure all your devices and even your home to the best settings.

Although not the cheapest solution, I think the Harmony Ultimate and Elite are the most user friendly solutions out on the market. The installation process worked like a charm using only the Harmony smartphone app that automatically recognised the Hub, registered it on my home Wifi network, automatically updated the hub and remote, and then started the device enrollment process in a very user friendly way.

Harmony Elite versus Ultimate

Both products seem very alike, and even prices can vary heavily based on promotions and other actions. At first view, the only relevant difference between is the physical remote's key layout, which actually is all about personal taste.

Looking at the Harmony App, it corresponds more with the Harmony Elite's colors and style, while the Ultimate remote has a style corresponding more to the older Harmony remotes. Nevertheless, if your packagage contains the Hub (which i stronly advise), you should be able to do exactly the same with either solutions.
