The Logitech Harmony Elite remote and accompanying hub can seriously supercharge your smart home. It’s now 50% off at Amazon for Black Friday making it the perfect time to snap one up.
The Logitech Harmony Elite is so much more than just the cheap IR blasting universal remotes you might have seen elsewhere. It can control practically anything you can think of through infrared learning, but it also has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth controls built into its hub. That means it can see network connected devices like your multiroom speakers or your soundbar, smart lighting, home heating, electric blinds and more.

You can then set up activities and control everything from your Logitech Harmony remote. Imagine pressing one button and having your TV power on, automatically change to the right input, your soundbar power on and your lights dim for movie night. It makes everything eminently simple. There’s even a touchscreen on the remote so the buttons dynamically change to your current activity.
The other great aspect is that the Logitech Harmony works fantastically well with Amazon Alexa, too, so you can trigger any of these events with just your voice. Just say ‘Alexa turn on the TV’ and it can run your activity. Then say ‘Alexa turn up the volume’ and your wish is carried out. It’s a couch potato’s dream.
There’s an almost ridiculous amount you can do with the Logitech Harmony. Amazon is now selling it for its lowest ever price, which is a staggering 50% off its usual price at just £139. Now is a perfect time to automate your smart home.
You can also add an Amazon Echo Dot for just £10 more when bought with a Logitech Harmony Elite, making the perfect combo.
