Another great feature? Voice control compatibility. As a both an Amazon Alexa and Google Home user, I love that I can activate features on the Logitech Harmony Elite with voice prompts. It makes our entire home entertainment experience more integrated with the other smart home aspects of our home. With Harmony Elite and Amazon Alexa, you can enjoy easy, hands-free control of all the things I love. I can turn on the TV, change channels or input, or turn up the volume, fire up a playlist, or set the mood for movie night with our Phillips HUE lighting. All I have to do is use my voice.
Logitech Harmony Elite unifies control of our ever-expanding universe of home entertainment and smart home devices into one powerful and fairly effortless experience. A sleekly designed remote control featuring a color touchscreen with motion-sensing backlit keys, and one-touch automation, Harmony Elite makes universal home control intuitively magical. We get to say goodbye to multiple apps and remotes while universally replacing, er, lost and broken remotes, too.
Harmony Elite works with over 270,000 entertainment and smart home devices. While we don't have quite that many, we do have quite a few. I love the fact that I can control various brand with one device. From my TVs to gaming consoles, from the Roku® media player to Apple TV, from smart lights to thermostats, even my Alexa—Harmony Elite works almost my whole home.
Setting up my “activities” on the device was pretty easy. Harmony Elite and Alexa let you start your favorite activities no matter what they are. Start an Activity like “watch TV” to turn on the TV and dim the lights.
