Bluetooth headsets are some of the most useful devices ever invented. Just think about it, hands free calls, Google Now and Siri voice interactions, live notifications and so on … yet most people around refuse to use them because of fashion reasons … “It looks bad!!!” they say!

Logitech Harmony Ultimate Home Remote Controller
As technology advances with big steps and everyday hundreds and thousands of new gadgets are released to the market to make our lives easier, there was time somebody took a closer look at the good old remote controller and bring it into the 21st century!

Don’t get me wrong! There were other remote controllers too that got upgraded to the digital world (take for example the Logitech Harmony Touch), but can we really consider them Smart?

Logitech’s news lines of Harmony remote controls, the Harmony Ultimate Home, not only allows you to control all your media devices from one single controller, but also helps you control your entire home while you’re lying on the couch enjoying our favorite show.

The Harmony Ultimate Home control kit syncs with your iPhone or Android device via Bluetooth 4.0 and allows you to control your home automation system via the free iOs and Android Logitech apps. On the other end, the smart controller connects to various devices in your house using infrared (IR), Bluetooth or Wi-Fi wireless signal allowing you to control all your home automation as well as media devices from one master remote.
Another cool option worth mentioning is the possibility of creating user defined macros (recording and replaying a suite of actions by only touching one button). Let’s say for example that your regular routing for watching a movie is: close the window, dim the light, extend the couch, turn on the TV and the media player, set the picture and audio modes to Movie and set the starting volume to 57. The Logitech Harmony Ultimate Home allows your to record all these actions and re-do them by simply hitting the assigned command button (of course, we assume that your home automation system already allows you to automate all these actions). Cool, isn’t it?
