Introducing Harmony Link: Turn your iPad into the Best Remote in the House

With thousands of channels and seemingly unlimited choice of shows and movies, getting to the content you are looking for is often a challenge. To address this, Logitech has developed the Logitech Harmony® Link and Logitech Harmony Link App for iPad®.

Working together, Harmony Link and the Harmony Link App turn your iPad into the smartest remote in the house. Just select a show from the personalized, in-app TV listings on your iPad and tune to shows with one touch. Or, using the award-winning Harmony technology, you can select an activity such as “Watch a Movie” and Harmony Link automatically switches all of your home entertainment settings with one touch. Product Manager Ian Crowe walks through the product highlights in the video below.

If you don’t have an iPad, Logitech Harmony Link also works with the iPhone® or iPod touch® as well as Android smartphones letting you turn these devices into a universal remote. At launch, these smartphones will not receive personalized program guides from the downloadable app; however, Harmony Link will deliver complete activity-based control over up to eight devices in your entertainment system.

With Harmony Link, now you can essentially turn your iPad or smartphone into a complete ultimate universal remote. We hope you are as excited about the power of Harmony Link as we are. Watch for the product to shelves in October for $99 (MSRP).

  • Does the Harmony Link support the Sony Google tv blue ray player. RF is needed to communicate directly to it, but I suppose it could be done via wifi/Ethernet??

  • Since it was released yesterday in the US can you please let me me know when it will be available in Canada ?

    Thanks.

  • The harmony link looks to be a powerful player in the home theater control arena, although I find the 8 device limit per Harmony Link a bit low, especially for larger systems. As a systems integrator, I have heard a lot of buzz surrounding this piece of hardware. It has been hinted at, and people have quipped about it, but I need to ask the question directly. I’ve read that these ‘Links’ can support multiple rooms of operation, but is there a way to bridge two Harmony Links to work in “harmony” with one another in one room? (much like to RF extenders with the harmony 890). I only ask as this would allow the more of clients to consider this control platform.

    I have also been thinking about the control paradigm with multiple room/multiple link setups. A system that uses two links in one room would only be viable if you did not have to tell the remote software what link to use, rather, you could assign links in the setup/programming as to streamline the users’ experience.

    Is this possible? Does anyone else want this? Am I asking too many questions!? Thanks for any response regarding these questions/postulations!

  • Hi.

    My Yamaha HT reciever and most of my sources are in the theatre room (Zone 1). I have a TV and zone 2 speakers in lounge over an HDMI extender from theatre. How can I control devices in the theatre and zone 2 in the same “Activity” or from the same page or screen? Do I need 2 x harmony links or some sort of extender to use with one harmony link? I want to be able to control both zones within the one activity or one control page. All signals going to both zone would be OK. Please advise best option?
    EG I want to have an activity to watch the Bluray player in the theatre with the zone 2 amp in the theatre on the zone 2 TV in the lounge?

  • Can you use both an ipod touch and an ipad? I’m not concerned about using both at the same time but if my wife is using the ipad in the other room, I still want to have a remote. Possibly even loaded on an android as well. It is possible the ipad and the ipod could be in use still leaving the need for a remote. Thanks.

  • Add me to the list of those seeking Windows Phone support! Nokia is on board, where are you Logitech??

  • This device looks great and I am interested.
    I note on one of the comments an Australian was advised not to buy from USA as it would not capture programs from Austraian TV providers.

    I am living in Vietnam (SCTV cable TV) will this device be released in Vietnam?

    Kind regards
    John

  • I love it ! It’s brilliant and much better than Griffins Beacon because it’s wifi and does not use batteries. Only problem is “select” button on AppleTv does not work. Directional arrows work but have to use actual AppleTv remote to hit SELECT to watch Netflix etc. Please tell me how to fix infrared code for that button.
