Logitech Introduces Killer Remote Control

 |  |  |  |  |  September 13, 2006

At this week’s CEDIA show, Logitech showed it’s latest Harmony universal remote control, the Harmony 1000 Advanced Univeral Remote.

 Logitech Harmony 1000 Advanced Universal Remote

The remote features a 3.5-inch programmable touchscreen, along with a variety of programmable, tactile buttons. The remote will control any device with an infrared receiver, and like other Harmony remotes, is set up through a simple web interface which contains discrete codes from over 175,000 devices. If your device isn’t in the Harmony database, you can still teach your codes to the device as well. The remote also supports RF extenders which allow you to broadcast the signal through walls to other rooms in your house.

As is the case with all Harmony remotes, it’s all “activity based,” so you simply choose a function like “Play a movie,” or “Watch TV,” and the interface automatically adjusts to display relevant functions for those devices.

Coming out later this Fall and priced at $499.99 USD, this one looks like a winner.
