      Great Universal Remote to Use With the Harmony Hub

      We got the Harmony Hub without a remote thinking our old Harmony remote would work with it; it did not. So, we got this remote to control it. It is small, thin, and light, and uses only a small coin-type non-rechargeable battery. To set it up, we simply went to the Harmony webpage, loaded the program, and ran it. It found our hub and we had little trouble specifying our DVR, DVD, TV, and AV Tuner. Through some simple questions and answers, they were set up to work. Pair the remote to the hub, load the settings and we were in action. There were some features that we wanted to add from our Cable/DVR remote, so I loaded the iPhone app (to avoid the trip to the computer room across the house) and added the features. Not the easiest to navigate the set-up on the app, and some other features were added later at the computer for ease of use as the screen is easier to see than my phone. Since we set it up and dialed it in, we've been using for a month or so, and it's nearly flawless. There are a few functions that weren't on the pull-down lists int eh set-up that we've lived without instead of manually programming as that requires plugging the hub into the computer and using the IR sensor to learn the commands. Nothing so important for us to pull our cabinet out and fight our cables to disconnect and reconnect the hub. In short, we love it.

      Remote it is good, very simple to use and to program it. It is not too big, is light and fit perfect in the hand. One thing I missed which is deep in the specification section, you need a Harmony hub to make it work and it sold separately ($99) or in combo ($149), you save $20 buying separate. The only down side of the remote is the keys doesn't light up huge mistake, and makes it hard to see in dark areas. I may understand the logic behind it in which they used watch battery to reduce the size of the remote, in which the battery may not be powerful enough to be use with the lighting components. Some of the keys have double functions such as the Fast/Rewind, Chan+/Chan- you need to hold down the button to use the second function very clever. Overall is a good remote and it does the job very well, and you do not need to aim at the components to control them. I highly recommend this remote and will choose over any of the lower end harmony remotes. I gave it a four stars due to the missing backlight keys besides I would have giving it a 5.

      PLEASE READ FULL DETAILS!

      Don't fall in to the trap that I did on this and make sure you read the whole details. I only read part of them and based on the title assumed it was a universal remote. I'm not sure why they list this they way they do because NO WHERE on the box does it say it's anything that closely matches the title. In fact, the box CLEARLY states that it's an add-on remote. If you look at how AMAZON lists the device, they clearly state what the device is in the title. I brought this to the attention of Best Buy Customer Care and they just wanted to argue with me that it stated it in the description. C'mon Best Buy, get your act together and change the title of this product listing to match with it says it is on the box! But, shame on me for not reading the full description and reviews.

      frustrating logic and no flexibility to add remote

      recently purchased a smart control hub. Quickly discovered that due to the "logic" of the control that remembers the state of a device, use of the original remote creates significant problems. For example if your spouse turns on the TV with the original remote, the harmony remote cannot turn it off perform any TV functions. As part of the setup process in the app, I saw the selection to add another remote. I purchased this remote as that second remote. Once I completed the setup, the original remote failed to work. After researching, It is clear that you cannot use more than one remote with a hub. If you are looking to be able to use original remote or a second universal remote, Harmony remotes will not work. I will be returning this purchase.

      Add-on device is perfect...

      Reason for my purchasing this was strictly to use as an add-on with my Logitech Smart Keyboard that I purchased. Initially, I planned on using my Harmony Home Control remote and hub, until I found out that the smart keyboard was not compatible with that Hub, for whatever reason. That said, considering I got a great sale price on the Smart Keyboard, purchasing this add-on smart remote to use at the same time as my Smart Keyboard was a no brainer. The one thing that I find frustrating with the smart remote vs. the home control remote, is the placement of the rewind, play, forward, pause, record, and stop buttons, as well as the lack of a page up and page down dedicated button, which the Home Control has. Other than that, for those that use the Harmony Smart Keyboard, but also want a regular remote for one handed use, I definitely recommend getting this especially at $29.

      Read carefully...I didn't...

      You MUST own or buy the "SmartHub" to use this product. It's not mentioned until halfway down the information segment of the product page. If you're like me you might read the first few sentences and decide it's perfect, and cheap, so you pull the trigger on a purchase only to realize once it's been shipped that you have to buy/own another piece of equipment. My fault, certainly, but it seems reasonable to have this important info at the BEGINNING of the product information.

      Cannot send IR, Extremely limited uses.

      Posted
      KLAGROUPER

      Tis remote works only with the Harmony Hub that receives IR and then uses IR blasters to send the signal to the devices you and to control. You cannot turn on your TV using IR and then use RF to control a hidden hub (or the hidden equipment). This makes the remote very limited as far as usability and an item you would not want to use unless you were willing to place the large hub with its verso cables, or an IR blacker with its cable, in from of you TV's IR receiver. The remote is almost useless other than the fact that it has very good range.

      I returned this as well as the hub/keyboard I had bought. The system required an internet connection and had a wizard which didn't give you very much control. With enough time, I'm sure I could have made this work, but ultimately is more more trouble than it's worth. This just reeks of a product for people trying to show off a smart-home with no real practical application. The price did not help either. There are better products for cheaper. The K400 keyboard that was on sale for $20 is a simple and more effective controller for a HTPC.
