Teach an old smartphone new tricks
Today’s smartphones are essentially mini PCs. They’re fast, well equipped, and can handle all kinds of different tasks, from productivity chores to gaming and everything in between. Heck, you can even make a phone call on one if you really wanted to. Thanks to Logitech, you can also control your television with your iPhone or Android device, provided you drop on a C-note on the company’s new Harmony Ultimate Hub.
The Harmony Ultimate Hub is a puck shaped receiver that helps consolidate your multiple remote controls into a simple smartphone app. It’s already included as part of the Logitech Harmony Ultimate and Logitech Harmony Smart Control products, and now it’s available as a standalone item.
Downloading the accompanying app is free, and with it you can consolidate up to eight different remotes. Harmony is compatible with over 225,000 home theater devices, turning Wi-Fi signals from your smartphone into IR and Bluetooth commands.
The Harmony Ultimate Hub is available now for $100 MSRP.
