Top Positive Review

I love this remote, it does pretty much everything I want. I have two different entertainment centers in my home, plus Phillips Hue lighting and media PCs in every room. This ties them all together perfectly. There are only two reasons this doesn??t get 5/5 stars: A.) Logitech claims PS4 compatibility, which simply isn??t true. I had to purchase a purpose built aftermarket IR to Bluetooth adapter to get this to work at all with my PS4. B.) Logitech really pushes the use of their smartphone app to setup and customize the remote and hub, which is absolutely torturous. There is PC software you can download to do most of the setup and configuration work, but it??s clearly an afterthought and hasn??t been very well developed; which is sad, because you can tell they??ve put tenfold the time and effort into the app and it??s still barely useable garbage. But once you manage to struggle through getting everything set up how you want, this remote is absolutely perfect.

Top Critical Review

I purchased one of these over a year ago to use in my livingroom. While the built-in activities and integrations were neat, the main draw was the fact that the hub could communicate with a variety of network devices to play a key role in a home automation setup. But with the latest firmware update to version 4.15.206, Logitech broke everything I care about. Zero notice or warning, just a change pushed without my consent that removed this “undocumented API”, which has been in use by the HA community for years. While they claim this was to fix a security vulnerability, this was a concocted marketing excuse to push their users to depend on their cloud-based services.

I’d just purchased a second one for use upstairs, but I’m returning that unopened. I would have purchased a 3rd, but now I need to find an alternative from a company that values my patronage, not to mention the hundreds of hours put into programming & integrating scene controls. I’ll never purchase from Logitech again.

PS – when I first attempted to setup the device, I tried using a windows laptop. It partially worked, but I was unable to register & configure the hub. They suggest using the Android / iOS app to configure it as their “preferred” method; this is simply because the other methods are broken & poorly implemented.

Customer Questions & Answers

does is work with dish hopper?
Answer: As long as your Hopper and/or Joey is on the same network as your Harmony then yes it will.

Does it work with Amazon Alexa
Answer: I works with Google Home Mini. I would guess Alexa is comparable.

does it work for controlling Tivo
Answer: It appears so.

If you go to Harmony’s Device Compatibility List website, you can search for your specific device, and it will let you know if it is fully supported.

Will it control panasonic saht800v home theater
Answer: I??m pretty sure it will

How loud do the buttons click? Trying to channel surf quietly at night.
Answer: in my opinion, they are loud if the TV is muted. I often watch TV while my wife sleeps and am always concious of the ticking the buttons make, especially if I’m spelling something out and the TV volume is real low or muted. However, with the TV sound on, it’s not noticeable.
