hlokometsoeng

  • It’s easier than I’d like to accidentally hit a button on the touchscreen when picking up the remote from the sofa
  • Channel favourites remove the need to go hunting in the guide for BBC One in HD every time
  • Trying to control pairs of Sonos speakers ends in one being turned up or down only, not both
  • The Elite can send IR commands directly, if you need it to, which makes it easier to controll things in another room
  • The shiny black Hub is a dust magnet

Price

The Logitech Harmony Elite is the top of the range remote from the company, costing £280. The Hub can be bought on its own for use with a smartphone for £100 or with a screen-less remote for £120, which is better value but not as convenient as not everything can be done from the remote.

Qeto

The Logitech Harmony Elite ke molemo ka ho fetisisa etsa-it-ditjhelete tsohle tse ka thōko ka reka. E na le mefokolo 'maloa' me ba hore ho na le tla ka tloaelo ba theohela moo ho sesebediswa u leka ho laola ho e-na ka boeona ka thōko, joaloka tabeng le PS4.

The bothata kholo ka ho fetisisa ke theko: it is very expensive for a remote. Logitech’s Harmony Hub is where the real potential lies, with its ability to control pretty much anything and become an interface for IoT devices. Controlling your home entertainment is tedious with only a smartphone, leha ho le joalo, as it’s never a single button push to get the job done and always takes longer than you’d like.

For those that are annoyed by the plethora of remotes sitting on the coffee table and want something that just works, then the Elite is worth the price of entry.

Pros: controls practically everything, no line-of-sight required, easy to set up with the app, can also use the app to control, IoT integration, ergonomic

Go tlhoka mesola: e theko e boima, relatively easy to accidentally press a button on the touchscreen when picking up the remote, setup cannot be done directly on the remote
