If you have a home theater system with multiple devices, then you also have a number of remotes. Running your system with multiple remotes requires patience, time and planning? After juggling a half dozen remotes for a while, you realize that a universal remote will make your life a lot easier, or at least your life as it pertains to using your home theater system. There are what seems to be an infinite number of universal remotes available, the Harmony Smart Control remote is the obvious choice. The Harmony line, the Harmony Smart Control can power-up, run, and turn-off over 225,000 home theater devices, from 5,000 different brands. This includes your Xbox 360, HD TV, AV receiver, Blue-ray player, DVD player/recorder, Personal Video Recorder and fiber-optic TV gateway, Apple TV, Fiber Optic Audio switch, and media computer.
The Harmony Smart Control adds Wi-Fi to its IR component. You can download a free iOS or Android app for your smart phone or tablet (Bluetooth 3.0 required), and/or use the supplied remote to send a signal to command a device. The signal is sent via Wi-Fi to the Harmony Hub (a Wi-Fi receiver, and an IR transmitter), and from the “hub”, an IR signal is then sent to the selected component. The Wi-Fi portion of the signal is powerful, and can go through walls and doors. As a result, you could have your components in a cabinet behind doors, and the “hub” will receive the signal. You no longer have to point your remote at any particular direction, just push the buttons. The Harmony Smart Control is the all-around solution for controlling all of your media devices even when a remote is not present!
