Overview

Our take on the Logitech® Harmony® 900

Enjoy easy, full control of your whole system with this stylish remote

Get easy, intuitive control over just about any home theater system with Logitech's Harmony 900. This universal remote combines both IR (infrared) and RF (radio frequency) technology, so you can operate your components even if they're hidden out of sight. The remote's sharp-looking color touchscreen clearly displays common activities, like "watch TV" or "listen to music." When you select an activity, the remote instantly evaluates your system, conveniently turns on or off the appropriate components, and even selects the proper settings for you.

In-hand

Control your gear — even when it's in a cabinet or closet

RF extender

The Harmony 900 emits powerful RF signals for operating components you've placed out of sight. Just plug the included RF extender into a power outlet and stow it behind your hidden components. Then connect the two tiny IR "miniblasters" to the extender, and position them in front of the components. The extender picks up the RF signals sent by the remote and converts them back into IR signals which your devices can understand.


Sculpted buttons

Ergonomic design for easier navigation

The remote's contoured shape fits naturally in the palm of your hand for comfortable operation. Its sculpted, backlit controls are logically and neatly arranged, so you can find the button you're looking for by feel. Plus, the Harmony 900 features a set of red, blue, green, and yellow buttons that correspond to the colored buttons on most Blu-ray player remotes. Use the convenient docking station to charge the remote, and to keep it in an easy-to-find location.


Internet setup

Easy, web-based programming

Harmony's online wizard makes set up a snap. 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 Harmony 900 later if you change or add components.

Awesome so far worth every penny

Features

Overview: The Harmony 900 Advanced Universal 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 900 Remote can control up to 15 devices, including home automation devices such as light and climate controllers.

Setup: The Harmony Remote Activities are configured through unique Web Wizard tools on HarmonyRemote.com. Using Logitech's Smart State Database of over 225,000 electronic devices from over 5,000 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 Televisions, A/V Receivers, Cable/Satellite Boxes, VCRs, DVD Players, CD Players, Game Consoles, Mini Systems, Computers, and Home Automation devices.

Wireless RF Connection: The Harmony 900 provides wireless RF connection so there is no need to aim your remote directly at your components, allowing you to even control devices that you keep behind closed cabinet doors and walls (up to 100 feet away). The remotes wireless RF connection is easy to install. The Harmony 900 comes supplied with an IR blaster and two IR blaster extenders that are placed by components you want to control. The Harmony 900 remote sends RF signals to the IR blaster which then turns the remotes RF signals into IR commands that your devices can understand.

Full-Color Touch Screen: The Harmony 900's full-color touch screen gives you easy, one-touch access to any entertainment activity such as watching a DVD, watching TV, or listening to music.

Sculpted Backlit Buttons: The Harmony 900's sculpted backlit buttons allow you to easily operate the remote in the dark, while its ergonomic design allows the unit to fit comfortably in your hand.

One-Touch Operation: The Harmony 900 uses Activity Control to give you one-touch control of your entertainment system. You can use one of the touch-screen's Activity buttons to power on your TV, DVD player, A/V receiver, set all your inputs and even activate play without having to program time consuming macros. Once all of your equipment is "on", the buttons on the remote are also automatically configured for the appropriate operation.

Red/Blue/Green/Yellow Buttons: The remote includes the four "color" buttons (Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow) that correspond to the same buttons found on Blu-Ray player remote controls. These buttons are short cuts for selecting items on some Blu-Ray disc menus. They can also be used for BD-Java interactive operations.

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

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.

Lithium-Ion Battery/Recharging Docking Station: The Harmony 900 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.
