If you are looking for smartphone or tablet integration, let me say up front that it works great. You can be up and running in no time. This tutorial will help you get started.
If you are looking to integrate with Alexa, be prepared to spend a significant amount of time to get it working. I have been a die-hard Logitech remote owner for well over a decade. Have bought every one of their remotes, and am thoroughly educated in setting up their products. This wasn't a difficult product to set up as far as its basic functions, but when it came to integrating with Alexa, there was a lot of trial and error. I hope to give potential buyers an easy tutorial on setting up their device.
1. Upon receiving your Logitech Hub, the best way to get started is with a desktop or laptop computer. Log on to: myharmony.com and click on the Sign in/Setup icon to begin. What you ultimately want to do here is download the Harmony App for Mac OS X or Windows. I am using Mac OS X.
2. Sign into the app either by creating a new account, or, using an existing account. You will want to add a new product. Have your hub and the included USB connector ready to hook up to your laptop. Once you sync the hub to your computer, it will find your WiFi network. You will also have the opportunity to give your hub a name.
3. Adding devices to your Harmony Hub via desktop software couldn't be easier! All you need is the manufacturer and model number of each device. Add your television, Blu-ray/4k/DVD player, receiver/stereo, Tivo/DVR, Apple TV/Roku to devices. When you add each device the software will ask you specific questions regarding how you control each device.
4. Next, you will have the opportunity to add Activites such as "Watch Television," "Watch Blu-ray," "Watch Roku." When adding each of these activities, the software will give you the opportunity to link up those activities to each device. Do remember that most televisions are actually controlled by cable company DVR devices so be certain to add those devices and indicate (if applicable) that changing channels are controlled by the DVR box.
5. This is very important: Go to FAVORITES in the Harmony desktop software app. Be sure to put in your Zip Code, select your local cable provider, and enter your absolute favorite TV channels. These are channels you will ultimately be telling Alexa to TURN ON.
Find the Sync button on the Harmony desktop Software App and sync the settings to your connected hub.
Now disconnect your hub from your computer and plug it into the wall near your display and components. Plug in the IR blaster to either one of the two inputs on the back of the hub and place that blaster in a centralized location within your system so it can reach all devices.
6. Install the Harmony App on your smartphone or tablet. Log into the account you created on the desktop software. The smartphone or tablet app will download your configuration. You now have a remote on your portable device.
This is a good time to test all your functions from your mobile device to make certain each of the commands (such as WATCH TV) are working correctly before moving on to the next step...
If you are planning to integrate with Alexa, you will need to do the following additional steps...
1. Download the Amazon Alexa app on your smartphone or tablet. If you already own Alexa, you already have this app downloaded.
2. Go into the app. Open the side panel (click on the 3-lines on top left of app) and select Smart Skills
3. Do a search for: Harmony
4. The two main apps you want are the BLUE "Harmony - Optimized for Smart Home" and "Yonomi." Now "Yonomi" may not be essential, but I could not get Alexa to recognize the hub without it.
5. Download and install Yonomi first. It will ask you to create an account. It will then ask that you link your Amazon App. Don't worry about any of the settings inside of Yonomi. You really only want to link it to your Amazon.
6. Next, install the BLUE Harmony App. It will ask you to link to your Harmony account -and- your Alexa account. The big thing you want to do here is giving all your devices and TV channels "friendly" names. These are names that you will give commands to Alexa. For instance, "Alexa, turn on CNN" or "Alexa turn on CBS"
7. After you have completed setting up the BLUE app, make certain that Alexa discovers all your devices. You should be automatically prompted to have Alexa do a Discover.
Go into the Alexa App side panel (remember the 3 lines on the top left), select SKILLS and then DEVICES and make certain that the hub is online (it should be tied to Yonomi)
Now it is time to test Alexa...
Say, "Alexa, turn on television."
Say, "Alexa, turn on CNN"
Say, "Alexa, turn on Channel 2"
You can also have Alexa turn on and off your other activities.
If this has worked successfully for you, the next thing to do is repeat steps #6 and #7 immediately above and install the RED Harmony skill. That skill enables you to control volume and other more advanced functions. What needs to be done diffferently with those commands is that you have to tell Alexa: "Alexa, tell harmony to turn up the volume." "Alexa, tell harmony to....."
So, the red app is a companion to the blue app. It can be a little more complex with its commands as they aren't as straight-forward as the blue app commands but both these apps are designed to work together. Just remember which commands to use for which functions,
This wasn't the easiest thing to set up, and really, I can't believe that Amazon and Logitech couldn't get their act together to make an app that is more straight-forward to use. Hopefully, in time both companies will put out another app that solves the problem of having to use two different apps and two different set of commands to control your entertainment system.
Hope this tutorial helps.
This will likely be my last update. After initial success with voice commands, Alexa has seemingly gotten worse, not better at working with the harmony. Alexa will report back 50% of the time that the harmony is not responding. After many reboots and harmony skill re-ininstalls, I'm sad to say that no improvement has been made over the last 1-2 months. With that being said, commands run through the 3rd party service, IFTTT, have run flawlessly. If you are buying this product strictly for voice integration, you may want to wait until all of the bugs are sorted out. I'm sad to say I'll be taking away a star. For such hype and initial promise, it's disappointing to see that the product still has many shortfalls.
Additional Amazon Alexa support is here! You are finally able to control volume/channel using just your voice if you own an amazon Alexa product (echo, echo dot, etc.). And while not as intuitive as controlling the volume on the echo itself, you can use the following voice commands to control your TV, sound system, etc.
-"Alexa, ask Harmony to turn up the volume"
-"Alexa, ask harmony to mute the volume"
-"Alexa, ask harmony to turn on the ___channel" (using channel favorites)
This is just a short list of the commands added, but functionality is improving almost every month. Aside from the voice updates, stability and reliability is drastically better through the native Alexa skill, so take older reviews complaining that voice commands don't work very well with a grain of salt. To enable these new commands, you have to download ANOTHER Alexa skill called "Harmony" in addition to the previous one called "Harmony—Optimized for Smart Home." If you have any further questions about the hub, leave a comment on this review, and I'll try to answer it as fast as I can.
I decided to brave the "horrific set-up" reviews and buy this in hopes of ditching my numerous remotes once and for all. The verdict? So close! While I initially planned on only buying the hub without the remote for use with my Amazon Echo, the lack of native support for the Echo and being forced to go through IFTTT recipes makes this task extremely unreliable. Overall, I was pretty surprised with how easy the setup process was and would recommend for anyone with a relatively simple setup that's looking to clean things up. *One thing to note, this product is definitely for someone who has some previous knowledge or experience with setting up electronics. For everything to work properly, you'll have to perfect the setup sequence and potentially add some action delays. But have no fear, I have a step-by-step guide for how to do just that below.
Here's the breakdown:
THE SETUP: (Samsung TV, Vizio Soundbar, Xbox)
•BEFORE you buy this product, go on the harmony website and check to see if your devices are compatible. This is the #1 cause of half of the frustration seen in the comments. If your devices are supported, the setup process should be fairly simple.
•I used the mobile app to complete the setup because I did not get the accompanying remote. Simply search the model number (often found on the back or bottom of your device) and that's it...No tapping the channel up and down buttons repeatedly for what seems like hours till your device turns off. Just find and press enter.
•Last thing to note, and maybe MOST importantly is the use of delays to make sure everything works fluidly and correctly. If you have a device that takes a while to boot up (Like my Vizio soundbar), if you do not add a delay, when the device turns on, the Harmony will have already issued the command to switch to the correct input before your device was fully functional..thus, you'll get angry because now you need to go find the remote to turn on the thing you bought the harmony to replace. No one's happy.
Here's how to add a delay to one of your devices through the mobile app:
1. After you've gone through the Harmony setup and created an activity (ex. Watch TV), select the activity you wish to add a delay to.
2. Select "Edit Start Sequence" and scroll to the bottom and select "Edit Entertainment Devices".
3. Scroll to the bottom again and select "add delay".
4. Choose the amount of time you want an action delayed (in my case I want my Vizio soundbar to wait 3 seconds after powering on before trying to change inputs).
5. Order the delay to the right position in the sequence using the drag and drop tabs on the left of the screen... and you're done!
The Harmony Itself:
•First thing to note is its size. It's about the size of a drink coaster, which was much smaller than what I was expecting.
•The device is made out of plastic but feels reasonably substantial and well made.
•Because of its small profile, you could easily leave the hub out on your entertainment center or what have you without much notice.
•OKAY, yes... the setup could more intuitive, and the use of delays and re-ordering your activity sequences shouldn't be buried in endless mobile app menus. But if you take the 30 min to set everything up right, you shouldn't have many issues in the future
•I bought this to use with the Amazon Echo, but I would say the IFTTT recipes needed to make this work only work 50% of the time. They have apparently begun beta testing native support with the echo, so hopefully this problem will be resolved in the coming months, but as of right now...not worth it.
•My last gripe is that it takes a while for the harmony app to connect to the hub. So for people without the remote, you could honestly manually turn everything on in the time it takes to open the mobile app, connect, and choose the activity you want to perform. Hints: WE NEED NATIVE ECHO SUPPORT (If anyone at Logitech is reading this)
Overall, the hub shows immense promise, and with the remote, could make this a well-worth product. HOWEVER, If you are like me and planned to use this with the Amazon Echo, I would wait till native support arrives. In the meantime, look at the Samsung Smart Things workaround for more reliable performance than IFTTT recipes.
Top international reviews
It’s a plugin base station so you need to place it near an electrical outlet. There’s also an infra-red attachment that needs almost line of sight of your components. The base station is also capable of Bluetooth control so it will work with your Playstation game system. You will need a smartphone or tablet for configuration AND individual device control - even if you intend to use Google Home voice control.
The more devices you own, the more technical know-how you will need. A straight TV and cable box or PVR is really easy to setup and control; once you add a sound system, a game system, a lighting system, and a voice control system like Google Home or Alexa, you’ll be configuring for a few hours because of glitches.
* Centralized control of EVERYTHING - there’s almost nothing Harmony can’t control.
* Multistep control is excellent - a single button press can turn off lights, set input on TV, turn on sound system and set to a player, and movie player turns on
* Setting up Harmony for the Playstation disables other Playstation remotes (only one Bluetooth pairing allowed on the PS)
* Inconsistent software functions, the “power” button, for instance, is sometimes “smart” in that it remembers whether your device is on or off, but sometimes for no logical reason it doesn’t track if your device is on or off so the app and your devices can go out of sync.
* Google Home or Alexa use can be frustrating. Voice command is only good for activities, not individual device control; you can ask Harmony to “watch a movie” but if your TV turns on but your PVR doesn’t get the signal to turn on, you can’t ask Harmony to just turn on the PVR device, to fix individual devices, you need to use the app.
* Unless you’re willing to program shortcuts, Google Home commands are awkward, unless you’ve programmed it, you can’t just say, “Hey Google, I want to watch TV” - you have to say, “Hey Google, ask Harmony to turn on TV”. You need to ask Google to ask Harmony and that gets tedious.
* For security, Google Home will require every user to have their own Google account and voice verification or it will refuse to connect to Harmony. It’s not a bad thing but it’s annoying since Google Home will allow guest control of most other things. I would like the option of allowing guest control of Harmony.
The reason I bought it was that I wanted to control my whole entertainment system with the help of this device and of the new Alexa Echo device.
The setup for the hub was simple and it also comes with an additional IR blaster if needed. Everything worked great on the logitech side.
I did end up returning it though but that was because of the Echo device. I didn't have as much voice commands then what I thought I would get and ended up mostly using my smartphone to control the hub.
If you're looking to buy this and using your smartphone then I would highly recommend the hub.
If you're planning on connecting it to Echo or Google home, I would do more research first.
Set up was easy as my settings from my Harmony 650 remote transferred to the Hub seamlessly. The Hub works great for turning on the correct devices and channels when telling "Alexa, turn on the TV" or "Alexa, turn on Netflix".
The biggest downside of the Harmony Hub is by far the companion app. Trying to channel surf, browse the channel guide or other basic functions is too difficult/not intuitive. Having to swipe between the number pad, the directional input, or play/pause/rewind/FF screens limits the functionality of the app. This is my experience with the iPhone app at least. I have not tried on my iPad.
The end result is that I use Alexa to get everything started as I'm settling into the room, and then I still use my Harmony 650 remote to control my home theatre system.
Overall, the Harmony Hub is a good product, that could be made great with addictional improvements made to the companion app.
This is just a basic guide off the top of my head ,so wont be exact, should give you lots of info if you having problems.
Basic setup instructions are ok, kinda the same a setting up and configuring a router. use a pc with wifi/hook hub with usb cable to pc or bluetooth with phone follow on screen setup.
Setting up the Harmony hub with the app was straight forward, easy to understand.
Add your devices using its model # like a tv /sat or Android Firetv or a Pioneer Receiver, it would then create a device profile and assign the remotes basic IR commands like mute, vol up/ vol down . change channel etc depending on the remote and device. Also you will need to tweak/add missing buttons/commands from your remote example PVR on mine was missing. or fix the ones that don't work or it wont all you do this by going to the edit devices menu on the harmony app find your command or create a new one and then point remote at harmony hub so it can pickup the ir code for the button, if you don't do this it wont work correctly in the end, so dont miss this step!!!. Then if your main device is your sat tv, you enter in your postal code and pick your tv provider and select your channels. once that's all done, you move on to alexia steps.
The Echo/Alexia has a very strange interface setup.
So on the Alexia app or page under skills you add the Harmony hub skill click on it , then it takes you to logi website for the harmony hub and you setup a account to log in with or facebook, google, mail. once you login's in, you taken to a page with your devices then next page you check the tv channels you want to have access too and setup a short name for voice control, then final step you see basic help info on voice commands and linking the account.
Then on the Alexia page you go to smart home, select your device and check on all the commands and channels you setup in previous step. then you then search for devices and you should be done and ready to test the Alexia with your tv.
Now the voice commands are Aleixa (device easy name say TV)
Alexia "TV" turn on or Alexia "TV" turn off, or Alexia TV Vol up or Alexia TV Vol down. or Alexia "TV" mute
Alexia "TV" change channel to ""Channel name or number that you setup"
and then most of the other button commands you control from your harmony app.
Alexia "Stereo" vol up, or Alexia "Stereo" vol down or Alexia "Stereo" off or on
It does not always work I am finding and I sometimes have to yell at Alexia slow my speech down or repeat commands.
So I find I use the Harmony app to control my devices allot.
Hope this helps new uers. if there grammar or spelling problems with correct later next edit late for a appointment.
Your activity might say, "turn on xbox, turn on tv, and switch to input 3" and you may have another activity that says "turn on the lights." When you later turn off the lights, your xbox and tv will shut off... for no reason. The only option to prevent harmony from turning off the devices is to prevent Harmony from ever being able to turn off the tv. Which means you're back to square one, using physical buttons. That strikes me as rendering this device rather pointless.
You cannot control power states. You cannot remove the option to turn specific devices off from specific activities. Meaning there is absolutely no way around this extremely frustrating limitation. If Harmony ever turns something off, it turns everything off. That said, the IR blaster is pretty fantastic. The bluetooth works like a charm. Once you get the hang of it, the activities are easy to programme. This product has good integration with IFTTT and Stringify but its integration with Google Home is awful.
You can control inputs on the TV by setting an activity to "power on tv, select input 1" and then add a Google Home shortcut that says "tell harmony to select input 1" when I say "OK Google, select input 1". You can similarly control the volume by saying, "OK Google, tell harmony to raise the volume". You can even tell it to increase or decrease the volume by several steps. As far as home entertainment controls, I quite enjoy the device. But controlling harmony via Google Home requires "voice verification." Frequently Home will refuse to use Harmony because it "can't verify your voice." Yet there's no way to disable voice verification.
I'm not sure it's worth $99. The product would be more than worth the price if they could fix the power-states issue and if they could work on Google Home. If you must get this hub, IFTTT is a must and I would recommend sending everything through IFTTT and Stringify.
