I have a long-standing motto, and it’s that technology should enrich and enable real life, without getting in the way. There’s plenty of examples of this, but one that stands out is the Logitech Harmony series of remotes at RadioShack. These remotes let you control at least 3 different devices in your house, so you don’t have to have a basket of remotes on your coffee table anymore. Even better, the Logitech Harmony remotes have activity-based controls, so you just press the ‘Watch TV’ button, for instance, and the remote automatically turns on your TV and makes sure the input is correct.
At RadioShack, we have 6 different Logitech Harmony remotes for you to choose from. The remotes all have a different level of functionality at a different price point, so you can quickly determine which one works for you, without overbuying a complicated remote if all you need is to control your TV and DVD player.
The Logitech Harmony 200 is the starter remote, and lets you control up to 3 different devices, such as your TV, DVD player, and stereo. It has an easy ‘Watch TV’ for one-touch access to your most-used activity. The Harmony 200′s curved design fits nicely in your hand, and you can even program it easily with a guided online setup on your computer!
The Logitech Harmony 300 is the next step up, and allows you to control up to 4 different devices, which can come in handy. Like the Harmony 200, the Logitech Harmony 300 has a handy ‘Watch TV’ button, as well as a guided online setup and a database of over 225,000 TVs, DVD players, cable boxes, and stereos it can control.
The Logitech Harmony 600 adds a small black-and-white LCD display, so you can see exactly what’s going on, right there on the remote. You can also control up to 5 different devices with the Logitech Harmony 600, so it’s great if you have multiple things that you want to control. This model also connects to your computer for point-and-click setup, so no more typing in programming codes for all of your gadgets. If you’d like to get a bit more adventuresome, we also carry the Logitech Harmony 650, which has a color LCD display.
The Logitech Harmony 700 beefs things up a bit with support for 8 different devices, and is rechargeable, so you don’t need to continually feed it AA batteries. Of course, you can plug the Harmony 700 in to your computer as well, to quickly and easily program it to control all of your devices, and there’s live telephone support available, as well, just in case.
If you have to have it all, the Logitech Harmony One is the top of the line universal remote. It has a small touchscreen display with multiple one-touch activities, so to switch from watching TV to listening to music, you just have to touch the screen and let the Logitech Harmony One handle the rest. This remote is rechargeable, and even comes with a handy docking station. This bad boy is capable of controlling up to 15 different devices.
All of our Logitech Harmony remote controls come with a 1-year warranty, along with live support from Logitech to help you get everything working smoothly. We also carry TVs, Blu-ray players, and stereos, if you need to deck out your whole livingroom.
