Fast forward to today, I've read that the Logitech Harmony remotes have come a LONG way from their beginnings. Not only are they slick, but they are powerful and very functional. Off and on, I've seen the Logitech Harmony 650 &Logitech 700 go on sale but I never pulled the trigger. I eventually found out that the setup I had required a universal remote to do BOTH IR (infrared) and RF (radio frequency) control. The lower end Logitech line is IR *ONLY*. I investigated the other lines and found that the minimum I could get was the Harmony Hub ($99.99 MSRP) but required an "app" on your smartphone or tablet (no remote was included). However, I'm a cheapskate and I wanted a physical remote but I refused to pay that much for a remote.
Then came the day where there was a sale on the Harmony Hub w/ Remote (which is the item I'm reviewing). Amazon had it listed for $69.99 for 1 day only (a discount of $60). I immediately pulled the trigger on it and I haven't looked back since. Now knowing what I know, I should have bought this a LONG TIME AGO.
Here's what I like about it:
1. Controls literally everything (it gets its info from the Logitech "Cloud". Therefore there are always devices added to it, thus the remote never goes "obsolete".
2. Has General Activities Out Of the Box, But Can Be Customized and Tweaked to your liking. For example, my sound system utilizes HDMI ARC, which turns on/off depending on if the TV turns on/off. The activities involving a TV had each device come on/off individually. I tweaked the macros to just ignore the soundbar functions and let the HDMI ARC do it's job. Another example is the delays of each macro step was too long for my liking. It would have me wait several seconds just to flip between activities. I modified each action and shaved off a couple seconds and I wasn't sitting there waiting.
3. Controls more than just entertainment systems, but anything that can be controlled with a remote: Thermostats, Lights, Alexa, Sonos, etc. With just 1 device, you can do anything in regards to home automation.
4. Easy to program. Took me just 30 minutes to set up my activities consisting of Smart TV, Cable, FireTV, and Radio functions.
5. Controls IR, RF, Bluetooth devices.
6. Comes with an IR BLASTER! Which separately with other high-end remotes is just another accessory to buy.
7. I ditched 4 remotes for just 1. THANK YOU LOGITECH
Watching/listening to different activities has been consolidated to just 1 remote. I can't believe how easy it was to setup and get working. As I mentioned in my likes points, I no longer have to fish/find multiple remotes depending on the activity I want to do. 1 remote does it all. Again, I got the remote/hub at a steal of a price but had I known what I know now, I would have bought it at retail price.
Do yourself a favor and buy one now.
One weak point is the documentation, which there was practically none. Also, seems like Logitech tech support hasn't been well trained on this device. One of their techs happened to change a setting on my account, and that caused the remote to stop working. The next day I asked how to reset to factory condition so I could redo the set up, and they told me to press and release the reset/pair button, which is incorrect (that's only to pair a remote). Finally, they told me to unplug it, then press and hold the button, plug it back in, and wait until the LED turned solid red before releasing. WHY this is not in the documentation, I don't know. With better documentation and tech support training, I would have rated 5 stars.
UPDATE 6/13 - First off, I don't know why my review was dated May 20 by Amazon, I actually reviewed it 6/11. Anyway, a note about the "Help" feature: First, the remote doesn't have a help button (no display to guide you through the motions), it's only found on the iphone app (or android). But even in the app, the help feature is only present when an activity is "on". When all activities are off, there is no help feature present. This means if you turn off the TV activity, but your cable or satellite box fails to turn off (if you've set everything to turn off), the only way to do it is either at the device or by using the device's original remote. I called tech support and they verified it wasn't there by looking at one of their ipads. They said they would "elevate" it. Now I'll just wait and see if that gets done. After all, it is a core feature that should be there.
UPDATE 7/6 - I actually emailed the CEO of Logitech about the "Help" issue with the iphone app (it's there when you turn on an activity in case a device failed to turn on, but not there when turning off activities, so what do you do if a device doesn't turn off ?), and a rep from corporate did answer. He stated that they are planning on updating the app to include this feature in late summer as part of their "road map". I still don't understand why this wasn't programmed in from the beginning since "Help" is a core feature of their remotes. I guess they must contract out their software programming and they simply left it out and Logitech didn't check/test for it, or they did test the software but overlooked "Help". Whatever the reason, I'm satisfied I got a proper response. Now we'll see if it actually gets done. Still love the remote, though. And the coin battery still appears to be going strong after four weeks of use (don't hardly use the iphone app, but when I do, I want the "Help" to be there like it should).
UPDATE 7/28 - Logitech has now updated their app to include the "Help" function when turning off an activity, this was previously missing. Only thing is it appears that the associated firmware update for the hub was probably delayed because I initially had problems with the updated app. However, I tried the app again last night and noticed the firmware update came through, so now the app works like it should. Also, the corporate rep followed up with me and stated that they have made improvements to the documentation included in the box, although it may be a bit before the updated packaging gets to the customer. And the original battery still seems to be going strong after almost 8 weeks of almost exclusively using the simple remote.
My initial impressions are very positive. Set up is a breeze with the mobile app as opposed to doing it with the desktop app for the 650 and not having to connect the remote to a computer is a big time saver as well. The Harmony app quickly located profiles for all of my devices and automatically configured them. I think it took all of about 15 min with some breaks in between.
What I really love is the fact that I no longer need a line of sight to turn on and control devices. This was a huge problem with my old 650, especially with certain components. I would constantly have to run the help feature to wake devices after beginning an activity. Because my TV stand is low to the ground my AVR and DVR are often blocked by the coffee table and other objects in the room. An add on IR blaster is also included for devices that are hidden in a cabinet, but I haven't needed it yet. The other really cool feature is built in support for bluetooth devices like the Playstation.
The included remote is small but it has a nice feel to it and the buttons are not hard to press like on the 650. It would be nice to have more activity buttons, but 3 covers most basic activities and the mobile app can list more than 3 if needed. At this point, it's hard to tell if the physical remote will be the go-to remote, but I have a strong feeling it will be. Employing your smartphone as the primary remote would also waste battery power that could be better used for talking, texting or web browsing.
All in all I would say that this is a huge improvement over the older 650 model.
