The Logitech Harmony 880 Advanced Universal Remote is not just an all-in-one remote control for the home, it also lets you control your entertainment hub with just the push of a button.
With the ergonomically-designed remote control, you can reach the buttons comfortably. During movie viewing, you donâ€™t have to search in the dark to adjust display settings since the remote has fully backlit buttons and an LCD screen.
Compatible with LCD TVs and Stereo Systems as well
Its one-touch control allows you to program your entertainment activities by controlling up to 15 electronic devices and appliances, including gaming consoles like the Xbox 360, LCD TVs, stereo systems, and even lights. Setting a mood or a specific activity for Saturday night with friends, the universal remote allows you to customize the controls, as well as add favorite functions from an old remote just by pointing it at the new remote.
One of its versions is especially designed for the Xbox 360. It has control buttons that match the color of the buttons on the Xbox console. It helps boost game time with these color-coded face buttons that can be programmed through software, as well as Y, X, A and V functions. The remote is also preloaded with Xbox 360 functions and is compatible with most components. Unlike its digital home entertainment version, this remote for Xbox 360 is powered by four AAA batteries.
The Logitech Harmony requires the simplest setup with its Online Wizard tool. All you have to do is connect into a USB port and add the device. Whatever brand your appliance is, the remote control will be compatible with it. It has a 175,000-applicance database from lighting equipment to Blu-Ray Disc players and lists more than 5,000 manufacturers. Your appliances and entertainment devices will be saved onto the remote control without having to follow any complex instruction.
Developed with Smart State Technology, the Universal Remote enables you to track your components and devices. It is continuously updated with new devices and settings so it is never outdated. Simply connect the remote control to a computer for updates. Logitech Harmony is also bundled with an AC adapter, USB cable and installation guide and CD.
Taking its user-friendly feature seriously, Logitech included a â€˜Helpâ€™ button for near-panic moments and an interactive display. It features troubleshooting assistance, as well as standard and advanced controls.
The Logitech Harmony Advanced Universal Remote will make it easy for you to use all your devices without having to scramble for other remote controls. With this savvy remote, youâ€™ll be able to navigate in no time!
