Logitech Unveils Harmony Ultimate, Smart Control Universal Remote Controls


Logitech announced it would be laying off 140 of its employees, or nearly 5 percent of its non-direct workforce, in an attempt to shift its focus to its more popular mobile accessories. Since then, the company has launched a new line of PC gaming peripherals as well as a new Keyboard Folio for the iPad and iPad Mini. Logitech is now launching some additional accessories for fans of their universal remote controls.

Logitech is announcing the launch of two new Harmony devices: the Harmony Ultimate and Harmony Smart Control. The Harmony Ultimate is a $350 universal remote which resembles its previously released Harmony Touch as it includes a 2.4-inch touchscreen display, although it improves on the Touch as it comes with motion sensors which activates the display when you pick up the remote, as well as vibration when you touch the screen.

Smart Control

The second universal remote called the Harmony Smart Control is more of an entry-level model as it retails for $130 and only connects with up to eight devices and doesn’t come with a touchscreen.

Both the Harmony Ultimate and Harmony Smart Control come with Logitech’s new Harmony Hub, which is an IR blaster that allows you to control your devices even though they’re not directly in front of you. The Harmony Hub also works with Logitech’s Smartphone App, just in case you happen to not have your remote by you at all times.
