Top Customer Reviews
Using a mobile device to start the setup was pretty painless to a point, I plugged in the charger base and inserted the remote to start charging. I then positioned the hub and plugged it in, like many newer IoT devices the app used Bluetooth to connect to the hub, I had to press the pair button on the hub to get the connection but the app showed that. Once it connected it asked me to name it then it searched and found my non-hidden WIFI network and I provided the password for the network. This is where I had the first hiccup in the setup process, it said there was a update required on the remote and that I had to hook the remote to a computer using the USB cable and finish the process on the computer, I had just given it internet access by hooking it up to my network so why couldn't it just download the update and install on its own? I am guessing this is because I hooked the hub up to the internet but the remote is only communicating to the hub via RF and doesn't have the bandwidth to receive updates from the hub. It took me a few minutes to find the computer software which I finally found at:[...] once I had that installed I thought I was dealing with the hub at this point and the mobile app hadn't made it clear enough for me anyway at that point so I plugged the hub into the computer and once I logged into the app it told me it couldn't find the hub and that that needs to be plugged in to the wall. OK, I plug the hub back into the wall and plug the remote in, but it wouldn't see the remote. I unplugged the remote, exited the app, and got back into the app and logged on then plugged the remote in once told to do so and it found it then and I was able to start the update process. Once that completed it asked if I wanted to complete the setup process on the computer or mobile device, I chose the mobile option for mobility. I opened the mobile app again and it searched the local network and found the hub but when I clicked on the hub it wouldn't connect it just kept spinning, eventually I decided it wasn't working so I closed the app and tried again with the same results so I unplugged the hub and plugged it back in then closed the app and tried again and it worked.
Now the setup went pretty smooth from here on. It scanned my network for WIFI devices and found my Yamaha receiver but not my Sony DVD player so I turned the DVD on and re-scanned and it found both so I clicked add for those. I then added my Samsung TV, Xfinity Cable Box, and computer by manufacturer and model number, or in the case of the computer by OS. It then had me setup a Watch TV activity and I added more like Watch Netflix, Watch Amazon, Watch a movie, and Listen to music. The Watch a movie, Netflix, and Amazon activities all use the same components they just launch the corresponding app on the DVD player at the end of the launch sequence.
I haven't had time to try the computer activity yet and the Watch TV option turns everything on however it doesn't get the input set to the tuner correctly, maybe because it doesn't delay long enough after turning on, I added a delay but I can't move it above the input command and I tried to add another input command but it doesn't show up in the list of options I was able to add the source menu option with an up command and select command which works but is kind of hokey. Also I couldn't find a way to change the layout or the look of the activity or device screens in the app which I would really like to be able to do, you can change the hard buttons on the remote but nothing in the app as far as I can tell. In the past I have owned the Marantz RC5000, RC9001, and the RedEye hub. The Marantz remotes where by far the most customize-able but extremely time consuming to setup (weeks since I customized most icons and the layout of each activity differently). The RedEye wouldn't let you add custom graphics easily but would let you change the size and move buttons around and change which buttons are available on the mobile device activities screens which is all I was really expecting here, unfortunately the company ThinkFlood that made the RedEye went out of business and when their servers went down it limited my ability to add new devices so it was time to look for a new option, and so onto one of the deciding factors in going with the Logitech.
I also have an Amazon Echo which I wanted to use with this remote so I loaded the IFTTT app on my mobile and tried to setup the Harmony Recipe, but had issues connecting the Harmony channel which took a few tries and closing out of the recipe and reopening it before it showed the available activities. I then created a recipe for each of my available activities with a matching phrase, so I can say "Alex, trigger watch Netflix" and the TV, receiver, and DVD all turn on, the TV switches to HDMI1, the receiver to HDMI1, and the DVD player Netflix favorite is sent! I do wish Logitech and Amazon would integrate the Harmony Hub directly with Alexa though rather than through IFTTT as it adds some lag as it is.
So far I have spent about 3 hours getting the hub/remote setup, devices added, activities setup, and integration with Alexa working, this is by far the quickest setup of the advanced universal remotes I've owned and the easiest even with the few issues that I ran into. I just wish I could remove some of the buttons in the app screens and move things around so everything I use most is on one screen.
This weekend I'll do more testing and try to update the review then.
Update (October 10 2016):
I have found how to modify the default device delay to help with my TV not getting the correct source, I also figured out how to modify the mobile and touch screen activity buttons however I had to do it on each device (iPhone, iPad, Android Tablet, and remote). The one big downside to the Alexa integration is that it only starts activities and I have one IR light switch since they don't make advanced switches like the Lutron MIR-LFQTHW-WH Maestro switch with Z-Wave yet. So I can only turn on the light not dim it or turn just the light off since I had to change the activity to not power off the activity when the activity switches. I can turn off the light with the power off all AV command but that also powers off the rest of the components. It would be great to be able to use Alexa to push individual buttons as well.
Update (October 28 2016):
Harmony released their Alexa skill last night, currently it offers little more than the IFTTT integration offered, although I got a reply from Harmony saying they are working on device level control, so I have hopes that this skill will soon far surpass what we have had the ability to ask Alexa to do up till now.
Biggest plus to this device is that you don't have to point to anything to turn on all your stuff. Only that one device I have requires me to point. Other then that. The iOS/Android app works GREAT. I hope they can improve the layout but, it works great anyway. I would have preferred the black remote. But, I'm fine with the white, even though it matches nothing in my living room.
Great price, I would recommend.
First of all, I will explain my choice of this model remote. I considered getting a cheaper Logitech model such as the Harmony 650, but ultimately I went with the Ultimate One over cheaper Logitech models because it comes with the Harmony Hub and IR blasters, which means I don't have to have a direct line of sight to control my devices. This is very useful because I will often control my setup from across the room when I am listening to music, and my furniture is in the way. The Harmony Elite also comes with the Hub and the IR blasters, but it would cost another roughly $100. From what I can tell, the advantages to the Elite are a superior button arrangement and more convenient controls over home automation devices and lights, perhaps some improvement to battery life as well. I do not have home automation devices or wifi/bluetooth enabled lights, and for a savings of $100 I can definitely live with the slightly subpar button arrangement, so I clicked buy. From what I understand, this model will control home automation devices, however, the Elite has dedicated physical buttons for lights and such, whereas this model does not. I'm sure the Elite is a nicer device, but I'd rather save $100.
The remote was relatively easy for me to set up, but I consider myself tech savvy. I have a feeling that my father, who has a solid understanding of computers for someone his age (55), might have some difficulty in getting this remote set up exactly how he would want it. But then again, he wouldn't buy this remote in the first place. I have heard that Logitech tech support is very helpful in setting up the remote if you need assistance, however, I did not contact them myself. I think that most people who are buying this remote understand the advanced functions that it has and will have a pretty good idea of how to set it up. There was a bit of trial and error for me, but I had it set up exactly how I wanted it within 24 hours of unboxing it.
Being able to set up activities on this remote is truly awesome. When I want to watch my cable, I can just press "Watch TV" and it will turn on my TV, turn it to the correct input, turn on my receiver, turn it to the correct audio input, turn on my cable box, and, if I choose, have it immediately tune to a specific channel. You can set up these actions for any common "activities" you have. This is so much easier than juggling the three controllers I used to have. I love it.
I read some reviews that mentioned poor battery life. This does not appear to be an issue with my remote. It appears that this issue was caused by an old version of firmware that was bad, and one of the first things that the remote has you do is update the firmware to the current version. I haven't run the battery out yet (I've been putting it in the charging cradle when it gets to around 25%), but it seems like it would last a good 4-5 days between charges under moderate to heavy use.
I have only two minor gripes with the controller so far, and they are very minor because I still give it five stars.
1) I would prefer for there to be a physical number pad. It would be nice for changing channels on my cable box. You can set favorite channel buttons on the screen, so you just tap them and it tunes to that channel. That is good enough for me 90% of the time, but for that 10% of the time I want to watch some random channel, it would be nice to have physical number keys.
2) This seems to be the main reason that people don't like this controller: the pause/play/skip keys are located above the touchscreen. The placement of these keys on the Elite controller, right below the touch screen with the rest of the buttons, is CLEARLY superior.
I would recommend this remote to anyone who has a moderately complex home theater setup. It really helps to simplify controlling everything. The price tag is high, for sure, but I expect to have this device for many years to come.
