It’s funny to look back on my first television and how excited I was to save my money to buy a super cool 19 in t.v. back in the 1990s. It’s been in our basement for many years so at a previous yard sale we tried to get rid of it, even for free and not one person was interested in it, times have changed. Now televisions are an inch thick and lighter compared to my first 19 inch, which must have been at least a foot thick. With our new new smart T.V. we can search the internet via wi-fi, stream movies with Netflix and listen to Pandora. While I love the convenience of being able to stream and listen to music on our television, I could never get used to typing in titles with our remote. A remote that always seems to disappear, usually in between the seat cushions.
The Harmony Smart Keyboard from Logitech has come to the rescue along with the Harmony App which turns iOS & Android smartphones into personal universal remote. Missing remote? No problem, I can use my iPhone as the remote controlling more then just the channels. I no longer need multiple remotes and controllers laying around since the hub can control it all including the PS3. I can easily switch from the television shows to the movies with just a click in the app, the appropriate component will turn on even if I have it behind a closed cabinet. I prefer to keep the component behind cabinets lessen the dust on them but had trouble in the past because the remote couldn’t work through the wood. The Harmony Smart Keyboard and App not only work with Apple TV and Smart TVs but also Roku, Xbox, and PS3, even when they’re behind closed cabinets.
The Harmony Smart Keyboard makes enjoying digital media in the living room easier than ever. No more getting frustrated trying to type out the name of a movie using the remote or PS3 controller, the full keyboard makes it so much easier.
