Product Description

Product Description

Harmony Smart Control
Harmony Smart Control works with more than 225,000 home entertainment devices

Harmony Smart Control

A Smartphone that is a Remote. Plus, a Remote that's Smart.

Logitech Harmony Smart Control with RF turns your smartphone into a powerful universal remote, which allows you to control games consoles (PS3, Wii and Xbox) and a range of entertainment devices easily and remotely. And when your smartphone isn't to hand, use the simple, universal remote control that is loaded with intelligence instead.

Turn Your Smartphone in to a Remote Control

Everyone in your household can download the Harmony App to transform their smartphone into a personal universal remote, displaying their favourite channel icons with one-touch control. This means you can change the channel, adjust the volume, fast-forward or rewind all with the swipe or tap of your finger across the smartphone screen.

Turn your smartphone into a remote control
Turn your smartphone into a remote control using the Harmony App

Wi-Fi access is required to use the Harmony App, which supports 802.11 b/g/n wireless home network, WPA Personal, WPA2-AES and 64/128-bit WEP encryption.

No Closed Cabinet Can Stand in the Way

Harmony Smart Control can see through closed cabinets, meaning you can take control of your TV or device without pointing directly at it, or even from a different room.

The power is in your hands with Harmony Smart Control, as the Harmony Hub turns RF signals from the remote into IR and Bluetooth commands your devices can understand. You can control all your devices, and access your favorite Video On Demand services on your PS3, Wii or Xbox 360.

Harmony Smart Control can control up to 8 devices and is compatible with more than 225,000 home entertainment devices from more than 5,000 brands.

Have an Extra Remote to Hand

The simple remote control gives you a handheld universal remote when your smartphone is not available or for anyone else in the house to access your home entertainment system.

3.0 out of 5 stars Potentially great, but frustratingly buggy 20 July 2013
By S. P. Long TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Logitech make a range of universal programmable remote controls; the Smart Control is an interesting combination of a smartphone app and a small remote with buttons (for people who don't like touchscreens?) The smartphone app runs on iPhone or Android - note that there is no dedicated iPad version.

The box includes the remote hub - a small box about the size of a CD, which is the core of the system - along with UK and European mains plugs for it, a USB cable, a wired IR repeater (in case you want to hide the hub) and the handset. It's all nicely packaged and presented - Logitech have clearly taken lessons from Apple in this respect - and the design of the hub and handset is very attractive. They are both curvy and organic, and blend in nicely with your AV system. The hub acts as a remote transmitter, sending IR signals to your equipment - it also includes Bluetooth to control a PlayStation 3. The handset communicates with the hub via radio, so you don't need to point it at the hub for it to work. In fact, if your equipment lives in a cabinet with a door, you can just put the hub inside, close the door, and control everything with no need for line-of-sight to the equipment.

There's barely any documentation provided - the idea is that you use the smartphone app (which is a free download) to set everything up. You are prompted to connect the hub to the mains, and the app then walks you through connection to the network and setting up control of your devices. Using my iPhone 5, the first few steps went fine for me; it tests each piece of kit as you tell it what you have, and it found my Sony TV and controlled it with no problem.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nearly the Best Thing Since Sliced Bread 26 Aug 2013
By RobinJ
Verified Purchase
This is (very nearly) a brilliant solution to the multiple remote control problem. There are essentially 3 components to the system:

1) your personal device profile, which you set up on the Harmony Web site, using its exhaustive (as far as I can tell) database
2) the smartphone application, which allows you to control your system either via activities (flaky) or by individual devices (rock solid). This is done by the smartphone talking to the Harmony hub over WiFi.
3) a "conventional" remote control that talks to the hub via Bluetooth.

So long as you use the smartphone app to control individual devices everything works superbly. My experience of using the activities (i.e. sequences of commands to correspond to, say, watch a DVD) is much less satisfactory. You don't seem to be able to rely on the sequence of operations being performed correctly every time. Worse, the function of keys on the Bluetooth remote depends on having selected the appropriate activity, not a particular device. Since the activity process may not work properly, you then have to set up devices by hand, after which you can use the remote. Some of the time. Why? Well, the easiest problem to describe relates to the fact that almost all modern devices have an on-off toggle rather than an on-switch and an off-switch. So hitting the "Power" button has different effects depending on the device's state at the time. Now, there's a potentially useful "Off" button on the Remote, which should switch off everything. So you want to turn off the TV. You hit "Off". Obediently, the Remote turns off the TV and the Cable Box. Unfortunately the BluRay player was already off, so it gets turned on. The TV notices this, so helpfully turns itself on, because, it reasons, you'll need it to watch a DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Idea - Smartphone Software Falls Short 1 Aug 2013
By Robert Groom TOP 100 REVIEWER
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Setup of the Harmony (on iPhone at least) is a doddle. The Logitech device database is very extensive. I have some pretty obscure equipment, but they are all listed in there. Even if they weren't, you can always use an existing controller to program a new device.

The first thing it insists on doing after you add your devices to the list is set up an 'Activity' live 'Watch Video'. Historically I haven't liked using Harmony 'Activities'. They are combo functions which do things like turning on all the devices you might need to watch a movie. In theory they might seem like a good idea, but because the Harmony unit isn't aware of the current state of each device, it sometimes has a have a nasty habit of turning something off when it should be on or on when it should be off etc. It all depends whether your devices are all in the correct state of on-ness before you begin.

However, in this instance, having a `Watch Film' activity which turns on my Epson Projector, Sony Amp and Dune Media Player, and points each to the correct AV source works fine.

The unfortunate thing about the iPhone app is that it doesn't let you customise the button layout within individual devices, and the standard layout isn't particularly useful. For example, a 4-way direction control with 'OK' button in the middle is spread across two lines of buttons and not in an intuitive 'cross' formation. Why is that exactly? It wouldn't be such a problem if you could drag & drop the buttons in the same way you can arrange icons in your iPhone menu system. You can re-arrange the activities buttons, but since I only have one of those, that's not very useful.
