Remember back in the stone age when people had to use these things called “remote controls” to control their TVs, DVD players, and Blu-ray players. Man oh man, those were some dark days. Thankfully we’ve come a very long way since then and remotes are a thing of the past. With a simple device like the Logitech Harmony Hub, your smartphone and your voice become universal remotes. You can control your TV, disc player, stereo, and anything else with Alexa or your smartphone, and if you hurry and pick up a refurb bundled with a basic Logitech Harmony universal remote, you’ll only have to pay $55 to do it. Considering the Hub alone retails for $100, that’s a killer deal.
