Logitech stops making Harmony remotes
Logitech announced its support forums that it decided to stop manufacturing its universal control knobs completely, there will be no more Harmony. A news that is not surprising in part because many of us knew that sooner or later it would end up happening.
For some years now, the Logitech Harmonies, and even the proposals of other manufacturers such as the NEEBox universal remote control, have been losing interest among users. Only a small group with very specific needs or with certain preferences were attracted to them.
The rest, between the control options through mobile applications, integrations with voice assistants such as Alexa, Google, Apple’s Siri and other options such as the widespread use of HDMI CEC have made having such a remote control is not necessary.
Even so, it must be recognized that it was very useful and for many the best option. Because they did not want to have to be involved with voice assistants or resorting to their mobile phones to control various devices such as television, music equipment, air conditioning, etc. And because you have to admit that sometimes a traditional physical controller is a much better option.
Of course, no matter how much you prefer something, if it is not profitable for the company, you have to understand decisions like these. Therefore, now the question is what will happen to those who already had one or even those who have just bought their first Harmony.
Will the Harmonies stop working?
No, despite the bad news for some that Logitech stops making these Harmony universal remotes, users who have one or buy it now can rest assured.
As the brand itself has indicated: current Harmony users or even those who get one through those stores that still have stock will not have to worry. They will continue to have technical support and warranty. What’s more, the brand will continue to support the software with future updates and with the addition of new devices to its database for remote control.
Therefore, whoever decides to purchase a Harmony remote at this time or has recently done so will not have to worry about anything. In the same way, the one that was already a user for a long time and continues to use it daily.
The only thing that Logitech confirmed is that there will be no future models, so while it is true that sooner or later everything will stop, for now it would not seem like a bad idea to get one. Also taking advantage of possible discounts to settle them, something that will surely happen shortly.
So stay tuned, because although it is true that they are no longer as necessary as some years ago, one of these controls can be one of the best current investments for many users. Especially for those who prefer a traditional physical control and not take out their smartphone to be able to control several devices from a single place.
