Our take on the Logitech® Harmony® Ultimate One

by Ralph Graves
Logitech

One easy-to-use remote

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.

Harmony Ultimate One remote

Customizable channel icons mean your favorite TV shows are only one touch away.

One-touch commands

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.

All-n-1 Remote

Written By onthelake, Dallas, Texas on Friday, September 19, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Harmony still makes the best remotes but they dropped the ball by not having a #pad on this model. If I want to go to the guide ( I have Direct TV) I can't start at a particular channel. They have the "Favorites" section where you enter the channel and the logo is stored in the Harmony screen but this is too awkward if you are going to HBO or high channel. I will put up with this flaw and use my Genie remote when I need #;s.
Pros:
Easiest programing of all.
Cons:
No # pad, would be a 5 otherwise

This device is amazing! The only thing better would be mind-reading! It is extremely easy to set up. Functionality is intuitive and complete. I love the touchscreen-no more jungle of buttons to get lost in. The device is aesthetically beautiful and fits in the hand perfectly. It's amazing.
Pros:
Ease of programming, intuitive functionality, touchscreen/minimalization of buttons, beauty
Cons:
none

Very Nice....

Written By RDLee, Gloucester, Va on Monday, June 23, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The Harmony Ultimate One is a very good universal remote. The soft touch/swipe command screen is a vast improvement over Logitech's earlier designs and the management software is a vast improvement over earlier versions. The only negatives that I can see rests with the touch and swipe sensitivity as it tends to be a little too sensitive and needs a way to be dialed down and 2) No replaceable battery. Other than these two factors I can find no problems with this device and it would be a good solid product for anyone seeking a universal remote to manage their A/V gear setup.

I am still trying to get it working the way I want it. I have been having trouble getting the start up programing working correctly. I need to get it to turn on the TV and wait 10-12 sec before it tries to change the input.

Best Remote Available

Written By Joe T, Bluffton,SC on Sunday, April 20, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I recently upgraded my home theater with a new Samsung UN60F8000 TV and a new Denon AVR-X4000 receiver and a Sony BDP-S6200 Blu ray player.So I need a remote that could handle all of these and more. The Logitech Harmony Ultimate One fit the bill easy set up all the features you will need or want. I highly recommend it.
