The Logitech Harmony Remote w/ Smart Hub is on sale for $58 as part of Amazon’s Black Friday Sale. It had dropped down to $64.99 yesterday, but now that Black Friday sales are in full swing, it has dropped even further to this new all-time low price. Harmony remotes are among the few universal remotes that can control the Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and Fire TV Edition televisions.

If you’re looking for a way to reduce the number of remotes but don’t want to spend this much, consider the Sideclick Universal Remote for Fire TV which is also on sale today for just $14.99.

Logitech Harmony Elite Remote and Echo Dot 2 bundle available for $60 off [Expired]

logitech-harmony-elite-remote-echo-dot-bundle

Amazon has just made a new bundle available that groups together the Logitech Harmony Elite Remote and Echo Dot 2 for a total of $287.58. That is a savings of $60 versus buying the two items separately, so you’re essentially getting a free Echo Dot for buying the Harmony remote. The black Echo Dot bundle has already sold out, so only the white Echo Dot option is available. The Harmony Elite Remote included in this bundle is Logitech’s top of the line remote. It features a full color touchscreen and comes with the Logitech Home Hub. The hub connects to the Amazon Fire TV or Fire TV Stick via Bluetooth, which lets you control your streaming device through the universal remote. With the release of an official Harmony Alexa Skill last week, thre trio of Harmony + Alexa + Fire TV has never worked better.

Logitech releases official Alexa Skill for Harmony remotes to control TVs with your voice

logitech-harmony-alexa-echo

Logitech has just released an official Alexa Skill that allows you to control Harmony remotes using your voice and Alexa. The new ability will allow you to say “Alexa, turn on/off the TV” to power on/off devices. You will also be able to enable Harmony Activities which control multiple devices, including smart home devices like lights and thermostats, with a single command. If you have cable television, you’ll also be able to change channels by simply saying “Alexa, turn on ESPN” without any extra configuration. As long as the Harmony remote hub recognises your cable provider, it will automatically detect the channels available to you and make them voice accessible.

Logitech also says the new Alexa Skill will be able to launch apps on Roku devices by saying something like “Alexa, turn on Netflix.” Harmony remotes are capable of controlling Fire TVs and Fire TV Sticks via bluetooth, but there is no mention of Fire TV integration with this new Alexa Skill at this time. Many people have already been able to achieve all of these voice features, and more, by linking Harmony hubs with Alexa through third party services like IFTTT and Yonomi. This new Alexa Skill from Logitech is a good start, but hopefully they’ll continue to expand on its abilities, since 1st-party solutions have the potential to be far better than 3rd-party middleman option.

Logitech adding Alexa integration to Harmony remotes

amazon-echo-dot-tap-family-alexa-speakers

The dream of controlling your Fire TV or Fire TV Stick using an Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, or Tap is closer to becoming a reality, thanks to Logitech. The consumer electronics company is currently beta testing Alexa integration with their very popular Harmony line of universal remotes, according to an email received by Dave Zatz of Zatz Not Funny. Harmony remotes are among the few universal remotes that work with the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, thanks to their included Harmony Hub. The hub connects to the Fire TV via bluetooth and relays input from the RF-based remote to the Fire TV. The new Alexa integration will initially allow you to use your voice to trigger Harmony Activities, which are profiles you set that prepare your A/V equipment for a specific viewing task. This functionality is possible using third-party services like IFTTT, but it’s always nice to have first-party support directly from the manufacturer. Future Alexa capabilities could be added to more deeply control the Fire TV with your voice.

Logitech Harmony Smart Remote w/ Hub on sale for $69.99 — Lowest Price Ever [Expired]

logitech-harmony-header

The Logitech Harmony Smart Hub & Remote is on sale for $69.99 on Amazon. This is the lowest price this remote has ever been. The Logitech Harmony remote is one of the few universal remotes capable of controlling the 1st and 2nd-gen Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. It comes with a bluetooth capable hub that translates the remote’s RF signals into bluetooth. Even though the 2nd-gen Fire TV has switched to wifi-based remotes, it is still compatible with bluetooth remotes like this Harmony remote. Amazon even specifically improved the 2nd-gen Fire TV’s compatibility with this remote in one of the recent updates. The included hub lets it control many different devices including Fire TVs, Fire TV Sticks, Rokus, Apple TVs, Xboxs, Playstations, and even PCs. Logitech calls this remote “future-proof” because they regularly update its software to support new devices, and I believe them because they were quick to add 1st-gen Fire TV support within 2 months of it being released.

Update

It’s out of stock, but you can still buy it for $69.99 if you go into the additional buying options page.
