Logitech Harmony 890 Universal Remote Control–The Mother of All Remote Controls

by Rob on January 5, 2010


When you think of conserving energy, a remote control is probably not the first thing that comes to mind. But the Logitech Harmony 890 Universal Remote Control can actually reduce your energy consumption and save you money, while controlling up to 15 components. The Harmoney 890 controls up to 15 components, including lighting and household appliances. But here’s the cool thing. Each time a new activity is selected, the remote establishes the proper state of all of the components needed for the current activity, and turns off the components that are not needed. It’s well known that home entertainment systems can be real energy vampires, and the Logitech Harmony 890 helps tame these energy wasters.

For all its energy savings, the Harmony 890 does not sacrifice functionality. It’s easy to setup and use, as this description from the manufacturer demonstrates:

Just connect your Harmony remote to your computer and the Web wizard walks you step-by-step through a simple set up. Enter the model numbers of your components, then answer a few easy questions about how you “Watch TV” or “Watch a DVD.” Harmony lets you control even the most complex system without the hassle of programming complicated macros.

And it’s never out of date. The Harmony device database includes 5,000+ manufacturers and 175,000+ devices, everything from HDTVs to DVRs, VCRs to lighting controls. It’s constantly updated with new components and fine-tuned settings.
