The Logitech Harmony Remote w/ Smart Hub is back on sale on Amazon for $69.99. This matches the lowest price this remote has ever been, which was during this past Cyber Monday sale. The remote is a little backordered already, so get you orders in quick if you’re interested in picking up this entry level model. Harmony remotes are among the few universal remotes that can control the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. The included hub connects to the Fire TV via bluetooth and the remote relays button presses through the hub to the Fire TV. The remote connects via RF, so you still don’t have to physically point the remote anywhere, just like with the Fire TV default remote. Additionally, Harmony created a pair of Alexa Skills, so you can have limited control of your TV with your voice through an Alexa-enabled device.
looks like it is no longer available…
Does Logitech (or anyone else) make a higher-end remote that has both a customizable touch screen and can control an AFTV version 1? I need to be able to program more than three activities. I also need it to have RF (for closed-cabinet control) and voice recognition. I’d pay a lot for one remote to truly rule them all.
Yes. Search Amazon. I think it’s called he harmony ultimate. Just search Amazon for harmony hub and you should see the picture showing the remote with a big screen.
I use this remote with my FTV in my media closet and it works awesome!
It’s a shame this hub is garbage. Completely unreliable with a terrible app
Please verify its availability before posting.
Not sure why everyone is slamming Elias. I purchased mine just fine around 9am CST. He also did specify they might be on back-order.
Available at BestBuy for same price. I picked one up last week and have been pleasantly surprised by it.
I also picked one of these up a week ago for $69.99 at Best Buy. Had a little trouble getting it hooked up to control my Denon receiver (the exact placement of the IR Blaster cord is crucial)but am loving it now. Set up 3 “activities” to control my Nvidia Shield TV, my regular cable, and my Fire Stick (I prefer the Amazon Prime Video features on it over the Shield TV and no Comcast HBO Go on the Shield TV either). I was skeptical, but it replaced 4 remotes in my system (including the Shield remote which I hated) and I’d highly recommend it. Especially at this price.
these price swings from $150ish to $70ish bucks are really annoying… 150 is too way much and those 70 deals sell out instantly. if they just set the normal price at around a $100 I would have bought it already
“Usually ships within 1 to 2 months.”
Did I read that right?
Still can order it with Walmart for $69.95. BB is back to normal price but they can match WM price.
thanks for the heads up about Walmart. order placed
I was ‘lucky’ enough to got one from BB, however the hub still not can find my router. Anybody has the same problem?
