I know this probably won’t surprise you but I love smart home tech. I drive John nuts some days talking about ways to tech our house out and make it all work together. I love nothing more than walking into the house and telling Alexa to turn on the lights and music. I honestly find myself telling Alexa to do things when I am not at home. Thankfully most of the time those conversations are in my head and John doesn’t hear me ask Alexa for the weather while we are driving down the road. When Best Buy said they were sending over the Logitech Harmony Elite Smart Remote you know I did a happy dance in my office.
A remote that is compatible with more than 270,000 devices for easy control..be still my heart! From your TV, cable and gaming console, to your AV receiver and Roku® media player—all the way to your smart lights, locks, thermostats, even your Alexa—Harmony Elite works with just about all of them! HECK YEAH!!!!!!!!
Want to know what really excited me about the Harmony Elite Universal Remote…I know you do 🙂 LOL!
There is a compatible Harmony app that works in sync with the remote. I love that I can set a scene up in the house before we even walk in the door. Oh wait I have to tell you about scenes and why I am MADLY IN LOVE with them! I like mood music, mood lighting and the combination of them. There is nothing better than cooking an Italian dinner and then having the lights and music themed to the meal. It makes me giggle and sets the ambiance for date nights at home.
With the Harmony Elite Universal Remote, you can preset your scenes and access them with just a few button pushes. I set up a chill scene for when I just want to relax and found cool new lighting options for our Phillips Hue lights I didn’t even know about. Did you know you can set the Hue lights to Tropical Twilight, Arctic Aurora or Savanna Sunset? These settings are so much fun! I am now hooked on setting up fun activities/scenes in the Harmony app.
I am also planning to head to Best Buy this week for more Phillip Hue lightbulbs because they are so much fun to pair with this smart remote. LOL!
