Here we are with yet another appcessory for the living room by the folks over at Logitech, where it is known as the Logitech Harmony Ultimate Hub. The Logitech Harmony Ultimate Hub is an appcessory that has been described to transform your smartphone into a powerful, personal universal remote, and it can even be purchased as a standalone product. Having said that, the appcessory is right now part of the Logitech Harmony Ultimate and Logitech Harmony Smart Control, where those two happen to be the latest universal remotes from the Swiss-based hardware manufacturer.
With the the standalone Harmony Ultimate Hub, all those living under the same roof as you are able to download the free Harmony Smartphone App, transforming their respective smartphones and compatible tablets into a personal universal remote. Imagine customizing your own activities and picking your own set of favorite channels icons, where you get to enjoy a greater degree of personalization unlike ever before. Your smartphone will wield the ability to control up to eight home theater devices, and a simple swipe or tap your thumb across its screen will let you adjust the volume, change the channel, fast-forward or rewind, pause, play, and skip forward or back. It even plays nice with video services such as Netflix on game consoles. The Logitech Harmony Ultimate Hub is tipped to arrive in the US and Europe sometime this August for $99.99 a pop.
