Do you take watching TV or movies seriously in your home? I will freely admit, we have a nice setup for watching shows in our living room. While it have taken a bit of deal shopping (and roughing it around Black Friday), we have the entertainment spot of my husband’s dreams with a 4K TV, sound system, and of course, video game systems. I will also freely admit that while I love tech, it is very easy for me to get overwhelmed with the various remotes and setup to make everything work (especially since we also have a computer down there as well). To make the fun side of life simpler for me, my husband had been eyeing a cool remote to make watching TV easier for both of us – the Logitech Harmony Elite. When I heard this remote could replace up to 15 remotes and was designed to work with our Amazon Echo, I couldn’t wait to try it!

Logitech Harmony Elite: Our Thoughts
So, what do we think of the Logitech Harmony Elite? I will freely admit, I was a bit nervous when we took it out of the box, especially after seeing everything involved with the setup. Honestly though, it was pretty easy to setup, with most of the hour and a half focus on connecting it to our smart tech, and Alexa through the Harmony and Alexa apps. From there, everything was pretty easy to use, and honestly, quite intuitive when it came to using the actual remote to control the TV, our Denon for video and surround sound, various gaming systems, and the other tech in our entertainment center. The real fun for me though was being able to turn everything on via voice with our Alexa Echo. While lying on the couch, I was telling her to turn on the tv, our Playstation 4, and even dim the lights to make it perfect for gaming on a hot summer day. I could easily get used to this! If you are someone who hates fussing with remotes like me and want to make watching tv or movies even more fun, I highly recommend getting a Logitech Harmony Elite remote!
