So my wife asked for a universal remote for the living room for Mother’s Day, and we picked the Logitech Harmony 1100. Read on for unboxing!
The Logitech Harmony 1100 Advanced Universal Remote is a unit intended to replace all of the remotes on your home entertainment system. I had six remotes (that’s 12 AA batteries) for the equipment on the home entertainment center. While I was OK with the complexity, no one else in the house was. From six to one! Nice! Now the babysitters can turn the TV on!
Here’s what Logitech says about the Harmony 1100:
One-touch activity controls
Say good-bye to cheat sheets. Everyone in the family can select what they want to do—such as “Watch TV”—and your Harmony remote does the rest.Learn more about one-touch activity-based controls.
