Ever wish your home remote control was more like a smartphone? The Harmony Ultimate One lets you use the same simple swipe and type touchscreen motions to control your home theater system. With a flick of your finger you can quickly swipe and scroll to navigate to your entertainment choices. The Ultimate One doesn't overwhelm you with choices — surrounding its touchscreen are just a few simple control buttons. And you can even consolidate button functions. So, for example, by tapping a button, your Blu-ray player skips to the next chapter. But if you hold down that button, the player will fast-forward through the disc.
Is your setup complex? Not anymore. You can initiate a sequence of commands by tapping a single activity icon. Touch the “Watch TV” icon, for example, and the Ultimate One automatically assesses the status of your HDTV, receiver, cable or satellite box and makes sure they're all turned on with the proper settings. Presto! Your system's ready for TV viewing. The activity icons also provide easy access for family members and houseguests.
Select colorful, easy-to-see display icons for up to 50 of your favorite TV channels. And you can personalize and rearrange them as you want — right on the remote's touchscreen. To watch a channel, just touch the icon. The remote does the rest.
Easy Internet setup
You can control up to 15 devices with the Ultimate One remote. The system works with over 5,000 brands and 225,000 entertainment devices, including lighting controls, game consoles, multi-room systems, and more. If it has a remote, you can probably control it with the Ultimate One.
To get started, simply connect the Harmony Ultimate One to your Mac® or PC via the provided USB cable. At the Harmony website, just answer a few questions about your gear and how you use it. The proper command codes automatically download to your remote, and you're done.
Power at the ready
The Harmony Ultimate One comes with its own charging station, so your remote has a home and it's easy to find. But if you forget to replace it on the station when you're done, don't worry. A built-in motion sensor “wakes up” the remote from its auto sleep mode when you pick it up — no more draining batteries while the remote's sitting on the coffee table.
