This week I’ve been trying out my new Logitech Harmony Ultimate Hub* and I’m in love with it! In this modern age its not really unusual for households to own 3+ remotes to control all their entertainment, so when I was offered a solution to this, I snatched it up. The Logitech Harmony Ultimate Hub is both a gadget and an app, that makes controlling your TV, DVD player, Sky box, Xbox etc. all much simpler. With the use of the hub (and an IR mini blaster if necessary) you can connect all your tech via the wifi and then control it all with an app. Genius right?
Not only is the Harmony Hub super easy to set up, it’s also super stylish. It’s sleek black, curvy shape will fit in perfectly next to your TV and entertainment. Everything is black these days it seems! The contents of the box are all fairly self explanatory, with the option for both UK plug or AC adapter.
As I mentioned, setting up the hub is really easy. Place the power adapter into the hub, plug the power into a socket and switch on. While you’re waiting for it to boot up, download the Harmony app from either Apple or Android store. Set up an account and you’re ready to go. Sync up your app with the hub first, then add your devices. Once they’re added you can even add specific short cut functions, it really is impressive. I didn’t use the IR mini blaster but this gives you the ability to connect a device that’s possibly a bit further away from the main entertainment centre. It basically extends the reach of the hub. Don’t worry you don’t need to remember my instructions, as instructions are also included in the box. Not only that but the app is so step by step that you really can’t go wrong.
The Logitech Harmony Ultimate Hub is such a good idea for this modern age. Instead of dealing with loads of remotes, you can have it all in one place on an app. Universal remotes are a great idea but even those tend to be out of reach, beside the TV etc. If you’re anything like me, your phone is always to hand. Even last night, I reached for my phone to turn up the volume, just so I didn’t have to get up and get the remote control. This is such a great gadget and I would definitely recommend it.
