What a time to be alive. Truly. I can turn the lights on or off in almost any room in my home without touching a switch. I can also dim the lights or even change the color and set the mood in rooms where I have Philips Hue smart lighting installed. I can speak a command and my Echo Show 5 will show me who’s at the front door. I can speak another command and turn on my air conditioning. I can tell my Sonos system to start playing music upstairs or tell my Roomba to start cleaning up downstairs. The one thing I can’t do is control all the gear in my media center with my voice… or rather, I couldn’t until I found this brilliant little smart home gadget.
The Logitech Harmony Hub has to be one of the coolest smart home devices I own. It basically acts as a bridge between your iPhone, iPad, Android device, or Alexa and all of the things you would normally control with a Logitech Harmony universal remote. In other words, it transforms your smartphone, tablet, and your voice into universal remotes.
Right now, Amazon is running two different deals on the Logitech Harmony Hub that you should definitely check out. First, you can save $30 on a brand new Harmony Hub that normally retails for $100. $69.99 is a fantastic price for something this cool that you’ll use all the time, but you can save even more if you go for a refurb — renewed Logitech Harmony Hubs are on sale right now on Amazon for as little as $49.95 if you forgo Prime shipping or just over $51 with Prime. Check the “other sellers” section on Amazon for the lowest price.
There aren’t any moving parts on the Harmony Hub, so there’s really no reason to be afraid of the renewed version, especially at that killer price. Plus, if it arrives and it’s not up to snuff, Amazon has a no-questions-asked return policy that lets you return it for a full refund within 90 days. New or renewed, though, it’s so awesome to be able to control your TV, Blu-ray player, soundbar, and all the rest of your gear with Alexa.
