Logitech Harmony Link Makes your iPad or phone a Universal Remote

Posted Mon Sep 26, 2011 at 09:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

The highly customizable setup even allows for multiple user specific iPads.

There are a few devices out there that give you tablet and smartphone control. As cool as that is - and it really is pretty cool - controlling just one device in your home theater isn't enough.

Logitech is known for making some impressive universal remotes, but the Harmony Link takes things in a different direction. It turns your existing smartphone or iPad into a fully featured remote that uses gestures and on-screen menus to let you navigate with ease.

The menus and the navigation options are incredibly nice looking - check out the video - and are simple enough for even the family technophobe to handle. You can get a fully customized experience by using multiple iPads, but smartphones won't have that capability at launch.

The Logitech Harmony Link will launch in October for $99.
