Logitech Harmony – Exciting Possibilities
Logitech Harmony is a line of remote controls that are inventively designed to be the best personal interface products on the market. The Logitech Harmony universal remote uses a USB port for online set up, updates and syncing the remote settings. The integrated software is Java based and downloads up to date control codes, firmware upgrades, and IR commands. Developers are currently engineering a Harmony Remote software program for the Linux platform. With full color touch screen, sculpted buttons, and an innovative design that contours to the hand, these are the easiest remote controls to set up and the simplest to use.
Designers were able to integrate flawless support of up to fifteen different pieces of equipment at a time, with the one touch activity based control. All Logitech Harmony controllers have the capability to control more than two hundred thousand devices from over seven thousand brands, efficiently eliminating the frustrating problem of needing a different complicated remote control for each device in the digital entertainment theater. This has truly become the defining device when it comes to universal remote controls. It also easily adds game and entertainment equipment with either the Xbox 360 or the one touch Harmony Adapter for PlayStation 3.
The specific shape helps situate the hand just right on the device and the distinct grips give trouble free contact to key buttons. The buttons on the Harmony One remote have been organized into rational sections which makes finding the right utility almost second nature, and the backlighting makes it easy to use, even in the dark. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery has an indicator light for when the battery needs to be recharged. The included recharging stand is the perfect place to store the remote because it will maintain a full charge and prevents it from getting lost in the couch cushions.
This highly developed remote control is marking its place in electronic history as ‘the mouse of the digital house’. The My Harmony website is a continuously growing database of remote controls developed to facilitate automatic programming and is updated daily. If a device is not in the database, a guide through the process of programming the Logitech Harmony from the original remote for the device is provided. The software will be able to detect the infrared codes and settings of the device and adds them to the database. After set up is complete the entertainment controls become simple activity selections.
The Logitech Harmony Remote has simplified the multifaceted digital world and made it possible for every member of the family to easily operate all features of the home entertainment system. The fully customizable controls will quickly and easily switch between the different devices used for preferred actions. The set up does take some time, however it is worth taking that time to be able to have every piece of equipment in the house set up exactly the way you want it. Excellent customer support and even the user manual are both available online should issues arise during the initial set up.
