We have a Sonos speaker that is integrated with an Amazon Alexa in our home. We use Alexa to control our TV, music, streaming services, and other smart devices. It really makes home entertainment a snap.
Logitech Harmony Elite
Logitech has come out with the Harmony Elite remote that is compatible with Alexa, making it possible to control everything remotely with just my voice. Here are some of the key features I like the most about the Logitech Harmony Elite.
We no longer need a remote or app for each piece of tech in our home. The Elite lets us combine all of our old remotes into one advanced universal remote control that can be operated by hand or by voice when paired with Alexa.
Hands Free Operation
When the Harmony Elite is linked with Amazon Alexa we can enjoy hands-free control of all our home entertainment devices. I can turn on the TV, change channels, and control the volume using voice commands.
Wide Range Reach
The Harmony Hub, included with the Harmony Elite remote, gives us control over devices that are stored inside a cabinet or closet. I can even adjust devices when away from home or outside using my Smartphone or tablet.
The Elite is a slim handheld remote, much like a TV or stereo remote. It features a color touch screen with motion-sensing backlit keys and one-touch automation. It comes with a stand that I just place next to Sonos and Alexa.
Works with Several Devices
The Harmony Elite works with over 270,000 entertainment and smart home devices, including TVs, cable boxes, gaming consoles, AV receivers, streaming devices, thermostats, lights, power locks, and Amazon Alexa, to name a few.
