As described this unit comes with the remote control, the base station and with 1x IR blaster.
The remote control build quality is fantastic for a remote. There are no gaps where the plastic comes together that would even accommodate a fingernail. It feels solid in your hand without it being heavy. Buttons have a decent feel, being a little too smooth (lack of tack) for my taste in rubberized plastic buttons, but have good subtle tactile feedback when pressed. All the buttons that I would anticipate using for my setup are all located in the middle of the control (Vol, mute, direction pad, etc) except for the "off" button and the activity buttons, which is understandable. One thing that is blatantly missing on this control are actual buttons to turn on/off each device separately (but can be configured). It is not an IR remote which is awesome! Not having to point the thing directly at the base makes this remote enjoyable to use.
The base station is very similar to the control in build quality other than it does have a little bit of give when squeezed in the middle. The rubberized base the unit sits on is as tacky as the buttons are (not very). Neither of these items is a big deal as it will just sit there not being messed with anyway. The base station is light enough that even at an angle the rubber should hold it in place. The unit is powered via micro-USB/(type B) (which is how it connects to the computer as well, standard-USB/type A to micro-USB/type B cable not provided). It also has ports for 2x IR blasters. A single slightly recessed hard plastic button controls the pairing function.
The IR blaster comes with a pretty lengthy cord (didnt measure, but if you need more than that length you have an across the room setup for your system). There is so much cord that I had to bundle the extra and hide it. While the base has ports for 2x IR blasters the package only comes with 1x. This is pretty sad as these things would cost less than 1.00 to make, not including it is just another way Logitech bones you. Otherwise, the blaster is what it is and does its job.
No software to install other than your app from the apple/google app store. I run android and installed it without a hitch. The app itself is cumbersome, slow and makes you want to pull your hair out unless you are not familiar with your phone and how apps work. If you're that person, then this app is very user friendly in that it holds your hand step by step by step...... It processes through things much like a PowerPoint slide show, with each slide describing what you should do and prevents you from moving forward until you have done it. However, if you know how to multitask on your phone and feel secure enough to not need to be held by the hand, the smartphone (android tested only) app is the worst thing possible. Maybe I am just impatient, which is entirely possible but the smartphone app needs much more improvement so its users are not left feeling that they are a 3 year old (or regretful because now all their hair is gone).
Unfortunately, the smartphone app falls short in other areas as well. There are many functions that you simply can not do on your phone that REQUIRES you to get on your computer to configure. One of the many examples of this is customizing individual buttons. The smartphone app only allows you to configure the activity buttons and even then there are limitations on exactly how you are able to configure them. Example: Using the smartphone app to configure 'turning on a device' (such as your tv) REQUIRES that you also set up what input the controller will set after the device is turned on. If you normally turn your television on and it is already set to the input you want, why do you want the activity to press "input 1" or "input 2"? It is unnecessary and can only be configured without the input on the computer. Other functions such as configuring the non-activity buttons also require that you use a computer.
Configuring the base unit using your computer does not require you to install ANY software (unless you want to use the smartphone app as your "sync now"). You will use a web based system which is much better than the smartphone app. Providing a smooth interface that is self-explanatory and allows you to get it done without too much hassle. The only negative about the web based system is that the only way to sync your base unit is to connect it to the computer or as mentioned, press the phones "sync now" button. The phone's sync button is merely telling the base unit to contact the Logitech website and check for updates to your settings. Why did they not do this with a hardware button on the base of unit itself? Cut out the useless phone altogether.
The one thing I did not test was the phones ability to be used as a remote control. The smartphone app seems to be centralized on the idea of setting up favorite channels called "Favorites" and would allow you to jump to one of your favorites with a press of the button. Which is nice I suppose. I am not a fan of smartphone controllers. There is no tactile feedback to let you know if you pressed a button at all and if you did, what button you pressed. I use my smartphone to control XBMC on OUYA. I am not overwhelmed by it, it is just not pleasurable to have to power-on, unlock it, and then make sure your finger hits the right button. I know there are ways you can make it easier, but I prefer to keep my phone for what it is, a phone and not a remote control...
So Logitech claims this unit is controllable, configurable and syncable from your smartphone. Technically that is correct.
This is what you want to know, how well the package controls devices. Well provided that you were not an idiot (like myself) and assumed (like myself) that because this unit claims to be able to control game stations via bluetooth (not tested) it must have a bluetooth radio on it and I must be able to use that to communicate with my bluetooth enabled phone/pc (because it cant), then it is a pretty good unit. Besides the advertised game consoles, this thing ONLY does IR. Does it do it well? If you dont mind using the computer (not even talking about the useless app) and that this is not a learning remote, then yes, it does what it does well enough. But how many remote's can NOT control devices well?
Despite being a very good price point and being able to control game consoles, Logitech came up short on this one. Like a guy swinging his golf club and the only thing in the air is the club... OK, it may not be that bad... But really they missed a HUGE opportunity on this, the bluetooth radio is what makes this thing. Chances are that is why you are looking at this. The possibility of having a controller that is not IR and on top of that having a unit that controls IR/bluetooth devices would be incredible! The only catch is that there is no way to control any bluetooth device that Logitech hasnt recognized (being game consoles only). If the bluetooth radio was able to allow you to pair it to a home theater pc, this package would be purchased by nearly every htpc user.
With the hardware that this has, it is entirely possible for Logitech to release an updated firmware that would allow you to use the bluetooth radio in this way but I am positive they will not. Same thing with their smartphone app. It would be entirely possible for them to update it so to be more usable but I doubt they will any time soon. This bluetooth radio fiasco, while disappointing, was my fault and the rating is not based on my assumptions. I am rating this unit 4 stars based on its poor smartphone app (that can be only slightly overlooked because you can use the web based software to configure the base unit) and the fact that even if you do not like the app you HAVE to use it to update it unless you want to pick up the base station and move it over to the computer and then walk it back and plug it in. Maybe I'm not impatient, just lazy. But if you are looking for a remote that will eliminate all other controls just so you dont have to switch between them, maybe you are too.
Edit: Shortly after making this review I proceeded to look for a solution to control my htpc. Obviously, the only real solution is to configure your htpc to accept IR input. I happened to have another IR blaster that came with my Logitech Revue. Next was to find an IR receiver that would accept the input. There are MANY options out there, being on a linux machine I opted to try lirc. After purchasing a cheap IR receiver that failed to work I wasnt sure lirc was what I wanted.
Then I found FLIRC (just put that in google to find it). FLIRC is a USB IR receiver made by a group who also provide a GUI interface (software) to configure your controller (making it so easy!). This was and is the solution for ALL htpc users that want to use teh Harmony Smart Control for their htpc. Granted you have to get an extra blaster and this IR receiver, but if you are willing to do that you can use this remote to control everything. The only negative using this setup is a lag of about .25 second from pressing the button on your remote to the htpc doing that action. It's noticeable but doesnt affect what you are doing. So if that doesnt bother you this is the way to go! FLIRC apparently works on all systems (windows, apple and linux)so as long as you have a USB port available you are good to go!! (tested on linux only)
Where the Harmony unit is concerned, you will have to add another device to your list to control your htpc. It can be whatever you want as long as it is something that you do not have as you do not want to press a button and control one of your already owned devices (i picked a random Television as I knew it would have many buttons to add). After this new device is added you will have to modify one of your activities (make sure the activity doesnt do anything with it though). After doing that you can edit the buttons of the controller. Select each button that you want to use with the htpc and configure it to use a button on the new device that you added. The configuration of this fake device is the most difficult part because of how unfriendly and counter intuitive the harmony software is (make sure you are using the computer here the phone cant do any of this). Using the FLIRC software provided with the receiver is as friendly as possible. After installation and opening the program, it asks you to plug your receiver into a USB port. After doing so, it will show a simple directional keypad. Click on 'controllers' and go to whatever you want to use (keyboard being the most flexible in most cases). After selecting the keyboard (or your choice), all you do is select the button on the displayed keyboard you wish the controller to activate, the software will then ask you to press the button on the controller that you wish to relate with that button (does that make sense?) All there is to it. Hope this helps those of you who have a similar setup, good luck!
So when the FireTV Stick became our go-to streamer, I was irked that after years of smugly only having one remote on the coffee table, there were now two. And when I actually lost that tiny little thing, lines were drawn. This could not stand.
Thankfully, Logitech stepped up, and in a big way. The Harmony Home Hub and Smart Control not only have me back down to one remote, but I'm even now integrated with Alexa. But I'm getting ahead of myself.
Let's start with the setup. Logitech moved from the "desktop program and USB Sync" to a completely wireless model. If you've used any smart home devices, you know the drill-- download the app, give it your WiFi login information, let it find your toys. While the app isn't going to be used as an example in a design class any time soon, it was straightforward enough, and more importantly, it worked the first time.
My biggest hiccup with the app was not recognizing that I needed a new account-- if you have an existing Harmony remote, the login for that won't get you into the app.
However, once you *have* created a new account, you are given the option of importing existing profiles! This was a nice time saver, as I didn't have to look up all those model numbers again- both the devices and my activities were immediately imported. Even better, it remembered all the correct inputs on my amp for each activity- since I updated the amp to display "FireTV Stick" when you change to "Game", I saved a couple minutes by not having to poke around.
The app then scanned my network, and correctly found the slew of Chromecasts and FireTV Sticks that were floating around. A minor quibble here-- I had to click on each one to get the "friendly" name, so I could distinguish between the FireTV Stick in my roommate's bedroom vs the one I was trying to configure downstairs.
But within a minute or so, my device list was correct, and I was at the point of verifying that the Harmony Hub was positioned correctly to turn everything on and off. I was mildly worried that this would be an issue, as I have a projector that sits about 10' from the rest of the equipment, but the only device that was tricky was my 12 year old OTA receiver. After a couple of attempts, I attached the IR Blaster, and that provided the boost that I needed to get the job done.
Finally, the app asked me who was my TV provider, and allowed me to pick out the stations that I wanted to set up as shortcuts. Having gone through this sort of thing a half dozen times in the past few years, the Harmony app was hands-down the fastest way to do it-- put in the zip code, select OTA, limit it to HD, unselect all, add the major networks, done.
At this point, things *basically* worked, but I started to hit the next round of issues.
Firstly, when I looked at the button programming on the remote, a lot of buttons weren't assigned. And we're not talking about weird things like DVD Scene, I'm talking "Volume Up" didn't get carried over from my existing remote.
This was probably the most annoying part, as the app carries over the step-by-step wizard UX from the old software-- you tap on a button, you get a new screen. You tap on the device you want to set, you get a new screen. You tap on the command, you get a new screen. I would have thought that at the very least, the list of devices would have been a drop-down, rather than a round trip back to the Logitech server, but apparently not.
This definitely could be handled better, and is part of why I'm only giving 4 stars.
The next annoyance was that I couldn't figure out how to add a device to an activity, specifically, to update my "Watch FireTV" activity to include the FireTV Stick. I thought that this used to be a simple task with the old system, but as far as I can tell, it just wasn't possible now.
Not a big deal, I created a new activity, and the app helpfully had "Watch FireTV" as a hint, complete with Amazon logo. The app was definitely a bit faster than the old program, and within a minute, I'd picked out the devices, verified the order to turn things on, and was at the fun part- pairing the Hub with the FireTV Stick.
I've seen other people comment that the hub only works with the Fire TV, not the Fire TV Stick. I can assure you that is wrong-- this 100% absolutely works with the Fire TV Stick.
You will need your old Fire TV Stick remote, or the app, but the process is simple, and the app guides you through it-- you're basically going to add the hub as a Bluetooth Game Controller to the Fire TV Stick. Again, a simple process, and inside of a minute, I was back to slooooowly mapping buttons on the remote.
My last quibble with the device, and this is entirely based on my choice of remote-- I really miss the "Help" function. This was a key feature of the old remotes-- if something didn't work, you hit "Help," and it would re-run the sequence, then ask if everything was now working. If you said "No," it would walk you through step by step to find what was wrong, then fix it.
This was the greatest thing ever for less technically adept roommates, but since this is the cheap remote with no screen to display the questions, I get that I've lost the feature. At least until I shell out for a better remote. The roommates will just need to learn how to press the activity button again until it works.
I hope that this doesn't sound like a lot of work, because it really wasn't. I remembered at 11:40PM that the package had shown up that day, and by 12AM, I had the whole thing up and running, including mapping the buttons.
That would be getting four different activities (TV, BluRay, Chromecast, and Fire TV Stick) running with 6 different devices (Projector, Amp, OTA Receiver, BluRay Player, Chromecast, Fire TV Stick) Yes, I had a big head start because I could import things, but even if I started with a blank slate, I can't see that it would have taken more than 10 extra minutes.
Fortunately, I did get the head start, because I used that extra 10 minutes to add my Harmony account as a channel to IFTTT.
If you're not using IFTTT, and you have any sort of smart device, you should put aside a half hour to dig- it really is straightforward, yet disproportionately powerful for what it allows you to do.
How powerful? How about setting up your Amazon Echo to automatically turn on your TV for you while you finish making dinner?
IFTTT is straightforward-- you pick a channel, then you pick an action in that channel, then you pick a second channel and an action to perform in that channel. In my case, the first channel was the Amazon Echo, and the action was to speak a specific phrase: "start fire tv". The second channel was the Harmony, and I could choose to either start or end an activity-- so in this case, I just added my "Watch Fire TV" activity.
Sounds complicated, right? It's not. I did the whole thing from the IFTTT app, and the longest part was authorizing the IFTTT to talk to my Harmony, which was no more complicated than re-entering my email and password. Once that was done, I was able to add two new commands to IFTTT, to turn things on and off, and it was just that simple. It would be nice if IFTTT allowed for more complicated commands, like pausing the music on the Echo after turning on the projector, but the lack of complexity allows you to get that simplicity. And since the Harmony *does* allow for some more complicated actions, it won't be hard to create an IFTTT action to "prepare theater for dinner" and have the lights dim as the projector starts.
While part of me is saying "You just spent $90 so that you could have a single remote sitting on your table again," I actually don't feel that much buyer's remorse. After moving my AV rack, my old IR Harmony was hit or miss with some things- that's eliminated. In fact, I don't have to worry at all about where the remote points now. It sounds like I can expect massively better battery life on the remote. Being able to use my phone as a remote will be nice for those times where the remote is out of reach and I've got two cats sleeping on me. Not needing to drag out a laptop and plug in a remote to program it is super-handy- I probably wouldn't have set this up last night had that been the case. And being able to fire up the projector from the kitchen is really just the icing on the cake.
If you have more than one device in your home entertainment center, you need a Harmony remote. And if you've got anything using Bluetooth, like the FireTV Stick, this is probably the cheapest, fastest way to integrate it with your setup.

If you have used any of the Harmony devices with display on the remote before I would recommend you not to buy this but go for Harmony Ultimate or Elite. The main problem I found in this is when a device fail to power on or power off then it will be very tough to toggle the power as there is no display and there is no way you can select the device to control.
If you have no choice then you can overcome this by programming the buttons. Write down every scenario on a paper and take your time
programming the buttons.
There is only 1 IR blaster so make sure that you setup all your devices can receive the signal. If you have some of your devices hidden and some in the open the you will need a second blaster.

I do not recommend this product. If you want a Harmony product that is easier to use buy the Ultimate One Model 915-000224 or even better the Model 650 Model 915-000159. I have one of the 650's and it is easy to use and works perfectly. Only thing is that it has to been in direct line of site to whatever it is controlling, but that's not a problem. It is not a rechargeable model so you have to change batteries, but you can use rechargeable batteries.
