Logitech has announced a new member of the Harmony line of universal remote controls. Typically, when we are talking about Harmony Remotes, they look like remote controls. This time that is not the case with the Harmony Smart Keyboard being designed to allows easy typing on your set-top box or game console.
The keyboard has a normal QWERTY arrangement and should make for each searching for your favorite content. The keyboard has dedicated buttons for changing channels, Guide, Pause, and Play on connected devices. The keyboard will support Apple TV, Roku, and the Xbox One and PS3. No mention of support for the PS4 is made, but that’s not surprising – none of Harmony’s remotes yet support Sony’s latest console.
The keyboard ships with the Harmony Hub that works with an app available for Android or iOS devices. The hub and app combo allows you to control components in your entertainment system and set up activities for tasks like watching movies, and even allows operation of equipment inside of closed cabinets. The Harmony Smart Keyboard can be pre-ordered for $149.99 (USD) right now.
