Overview

Our take on the Logitech® Harmony® 890PRO

The 890PRO combines Harmony's popular Internet-based setup feature with powerful radio frequency (RF) operation for longer range and greater installation flexibility with your audio/video system. It can send commands to equipment installed in a closet, in a cabinet, or even in another room, when used with its companion RF wireless extender (available separately). You can operate up to 15 devices in all, including many lighting, climate control and security systems that use RF control.

Easy, web-based programming
Harmony's online wizard makes it a snap to set up the 890PRO. Just plug the remote into your computer with the provided USB cable, visit Harmony's website, and answer some simple questions about your system. That's it — the setup wizard automatically downloads the necessary codes and programs the remote for you. The site remembers your settings, too, so it's easy to reprogram the 890PRO later if you change or add components.

Simple one-touch operation
"Activity" buttons give you intuitive one-touch control of your system. For example, to play a DVD, just press "play DVD." The remote instantly evaluates your system, turns on or off the appropriate components, selects the proper settings, and starts the DVD player.

Features

Overview: The Harmony 890 Pro Remote provides simple, intuitive control of even the most elaborate entertainment system for anyone in the family. The remote setup is accomplished through Harmony's interactive web site. The Harmony 890 Pro can control up to 15 devices, including "Z-Wave" wireless home controls for lighting, projection screens, or curtains.

Setup: The Harmony Remote Activities are configured through unique Web Wizard tools on HarmonyRemote.com. Using Logitech's Smart State Database of over 100,000 electronic devices from over 3,000 manufacturers, you can easily customize the remote to your system. The database, together with IR learning, ensures support of all infrared-controlled devices made by any manufacturer, including TiVo, HDVCR, HDTV, Plasma Displays, Monitors, Projectors, Lighting Control, CD/DVD-R, PVR (Personal Video Recorder), Satellite Radios, Amplifiers, DVD Players, Receivers, Dual VCRs and even combination devices like DVD-VCR components.

IR/RF Control: Logitech's Harmony 890 Pro remote control uses infrared (IR) wireless signals to deliver complete control of your home-entertainment system. With an optional RF Wireless Extender (596RFEXT), you can control devices that may be hidden behind cabinets or in other rooms. With a wireless range of up to 100 feet, the Harmony 890 Pro remote sends RF commands to the wireless receiver, which then blasts infrared signals to the components.

Backlighting: The buttons and LCD display are backlit for easy nighttime use.

Lithium-Ion Battery/Recharging Docking Station: The Harmony 890 Pro includes a removable rechargeable Lithium-ion battery, which provides up to a one-week charge under normal use. The remote comes with a docking station that keeps the remote fully charged. Because the docking station is horizontal, it allows the remote to be used while charging.

Learning Function: In addition to the devices which can be entered using the web interface, this remote can also learn most functions of other infrared remotes.

Activity Buttons: The Harmony 890 Pro remote is equipped with Smart State Technology Activity Control. During setup, you can indicate through the on-line "interview" which components are in what rooms, and what activities you want to program for each room. By indicating on the remote what room you're in (living room, den, kitchen), and what activity you want to begin, you can fully control the components involved in that activity. For example, by pressing "Watch DVD" the remote can turn on the DVD player, TV, and A/V receiver, switch the components to the proper inputs, and start the movie.

Interactive Multi-color Display: Depending on the Activity you are enjoying, the Interactive Display offers additional commands or options allowing you to fully control the Activity or component.

Help: If you have a problem completing an activity function, the help button will guide you through the fix using the interactive multi-color display. The remote will ask a series of questions, such as "Is the TV on?" or "Is the volume turned up?" in order to troubleshoot the problem and correct it.

Flash Memory: The settings are stored in a non-volatile flash memory so they will never be lost, even when the battery needs charging.

System Off: One push of the off button turns off all the equipment in your system.
