Logitech unveils Harmony universal remote duet

One control to rule them all

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Logitech has introduced two more models to its Harmony line of all-in-one remote controls.

The Harmony 600 has a monochrome screen - the Harmony 650 is the colour option. The 600's display presents the commands at your disposal, while the 650's screen shows icons for your favourite TV stations.

Both provide one-click actions: buttons trigger multiple signals allowing you to, say, turn the TV on, switch it to the right Scart connector and tell the DVD player to start showing a film.

Both remotes can take the place of five device-specific remotes from more than 250,000 home-entertainment devices made by more than 5000 brands, Logitech claimed.
