The biggest advantage of owning a master remote control is the fact that you get to use just a single remote for multiple devices rather than hauling around different remote control however, the bad news is that Logitech, the company that made the Harmony universal remote will be discontinuing the production of this universal remote according to a statement released by the tech firm last Friday.
Even though the production will not be continued, the company made it known that it will still be available for purchase from various retailers at least for some times.
And as for the owners of the Harmony universal remote, Logitech stated it will continue to support the device which is still a good news for existing users just that you don’t want it broken.
“We plan to support our Harmony community and new Harmony customers, which includes access to our software and apps to set up and manage your remotes,” the peripherals maker said in a post on its support site. “We also plan to continue to update the platform and add devices to our Harmony database. Customer and warranty support will continue to be offered.”
The incredible Harmony universal remote comes with a lot features which makes it fascinating and liked by many gadget enthusiasts which made it rank as one of the best universal remote control in 2020.
One of the reasons Logitech might be stepping away from the production of this device is due to the fact that modern connected devices can be controlled solely via a smartphone which is a good thing.
Considering the fact that different smart home gadgets also work with the Google Home or Amazon Alexa ecosystem, that makes it one voice command away from getting some actions performed.
Logitech probably pulled out when it still gets respected because let’s face it, in a matter of time, this device might become redundant. Just the same honorable exit LG did from the smartphone market earlier this month, Logitech is doing the same with the universal remote control system.
Logitech put together a number FAQ on its support page for those who still own the device so they can easily understand the stance of the company about the new development
