Got the harmony 1000 as a christmas present. On the plus side, it didn’t take too long to set up the basics using the web-based setup, and it does operate all of my equipment which is a first for any type of “one for all” remote. Not least because some of my equipment is over a decade old. The unit is slim and rechargeable and relatively easy to use. On the downside, the touchscreen isn’t as sensitive as it might be and for most of my equipment you have to scroll through a large number of screens to get to the button you want which is a huge time waster. In addition, a few more “hardware” buttons wouldn’t have gone amiss such as red green yellow and blue tv/satellite buttons as these seem fairly universal on remotes at the moment. I haven’t mastered programming the macro functions yet as the software isn’t that intuitive or flexible but i’m putting that down to my inexperience at this time. I believe i can swap a few of the keys around so as not to have to do so much scrolling. If so,this will eventually be almost perfect for me.

Wow 5 out of 5i brought this remote as a christmas present for my husband and he loves it. Not easy to program for the initial setup but once he had read the instructions(sorry guys but you will need them)he had all our devices added the blueray,television ect ectthen just to show off he added the remote control light that we have in our front roomit is the envy of all his friends which makes him like it even more if you are a gadget mad person or you know a gadget mad person this is the thing to buy (trust me my husband is hard to please).

Logitech harmony 1000 – touch screen universal remote controlexcellent product, handles unusual products (metronome, krell) as well as the more common makes. Set up not too complicated but needs precise details – and customer support truly fantastic. My wife now uses the home theatre and the 6 handsets have been filed.

“Does NOT support Z-Wave, Great little bit of kit, Very good indeed, if less flexible than a Pronto”

If you just want to control ir devices, then this is a great product(although the harmony software requires you to be connected to the internet, and you can’t search the product database to see if your product is supported before you add it – even if your product is in the database, it might not be supported). However, i bought it because both this amazon product page and the logitech website indicate that it has z-wave wireless support. However, this is for the optional rf-extender only. You *cannot* use the harmony 1000 to control z-wave lighting modules and z-wave home automation modules. Apparently this was planned for the device (and was in the original product blurb) but logitech pulled it at the last moment (frustratingly, the ability to control z-wave devices is still in the hardware, but disabled in firmware). So if you want to control z-wave lighting and z-wave wireless devices (e. Control lighting, and turn off power sockets), you’ll want to get the harmony 895. Here’s hoping amazon will take back my harmony 1000.

It’s seems weird that for some reviewers this remote locks up and requires battery removal, and for others it seems perfectly finethis problem appears to be firmware related the cases that have worked probably have newer firmware. I have previously owned harmony remotes and the “price/functionality” ratio is truly excellent. In fact a harmony remote is the only universal remote on the market that i have found to be of any use. I use a harmony remote on a daily basis, rather than just chucking it in a drawer and using the original remotes, as i have had to do on many occasions with previous so called universal remotes. True the software/setup does require patience but the results are worth the effort. Sometimes days of tinkering are required to get the system “just right”.

Large clear screen,takes a while to set up but when mastered found it easy to do,one command can switch several items on or off,it will even switch your tv to the correct av channel. The only downside is the battery does not last long before it needs recharging.

Have bought many “one for all” remotes over the years, but always had to have the original remotes nearby, as they never could fully replicate all the sometimes, but essential function buttons. With the harmony, i have truly not needed the original remotes at all. The initial setup was easy, but you do have to invest time into getting it perfect. You have a direct number to call the harmony tech support team who respond quickly and can go to your setup and make changes if you need them to. I do think the rrp of approx £200 is excessive, but amazon did a special for £139 – still expensive for a remote control, but it really does the job. Now that i have set it up with the buttons and functions i like, it makes controlling all the equipment i have a doddle.

At long last a universal remote that is easy to set up and use. The instructions are clear and along with the web support you literally can have this up and running in half an hour as it says on the box. The great thing is once set up it actually does replace the other remotes unlike many others where you still require to have them handy for that one obscure function you use now and again. If i have one small criticism its the remote does not work with a ps3 but thats down to sony not logitech. A great piece of kit worth the money just for no longer have remotes scattered all over the living room.

This product is the ultimate solution for tons of remotes. Almost no problem in configuration. It is absolutely the one thing i would recommend for anyone who has serious home theater and tv systems and has to use multiple devices. It controls anything ir and it is very easy to set up. Also it is the one and only i have seen really working for learning ir commands from other remotes. And in most of the cases is not needed as the database is hugeenjoy, it is really worth the moneys.

Just a quick review to say that i’ve been using my new harmony 1000 for a few weeks now and it really is the bet tech product i’ve ever bought. Not only can you be safe in the knowledge that it will control all of your devices, but it will even perform actions that the remotes it’s replacing won’t. For example on my samsung lcd tv if i wat to switch sources i can either cycle through them in a set order, or go into the menu and select one, both time consuming when you’re going from hdmi 3 to hdmi 2 inputs etc. The logitech has buttons for each individual source input. There can be teething problems finding your devices on the database, particularly sky+ and sky+hd boxes but the logitech faq’s and forums are brilliant for help, the support team are also second to none. There will always be quirky individual nuances of customers systems that mean the logitech might not perform to 100% of expectations out of the box but a bit of user-creativity means you can think of work-arounds. The remote supports leaving specific devices like your amp/receiver permanently on, you can add 1/10 of a second pauses into the macros for the activity-based controls, so if your tv responds to increases in volume a little slowly you can ensure it has time to process before the logitech sends the next signal etc. Do expect an hour long initial set-up, followed by half an hour extra within 24 hours to correct any errors, then maybe a 15 minute session or two tidying up any loose ends and adressing minor niggles after a few weeks of use. After that i’m now completely satisfied with how it controls my system and i can genuinely put all the other remotes in the drawer, unlike with previous learning remotes where i’ve had to have them on standby by the sofa to fulfil a couple of tricky functions.

Logitech harmony 1000 review. This looks great and has a really good touch screen. It’s clever in the way it guides you through set up and creates suggested activities which will control all your devices where relevant. It is let down by bad software which is not as user friendly on set up as it could or should be. Assuming you get past that it’s great.

This is the best piece of kit i have bought in ages,albeit slightly expensive, but worth every penny as it has consigned 4 remotes to a drawervery easy to program over the internet with the supplied software.

Good functionality but had quality problems. The functionality of this product is good. I was able to set-up an action to automatically turn on the freesat receiver, turn on the tv with the correct input, then navigate through the menus on the tv to switch the sound output from internal to external; though this took quite a lot of juggling with time delays to get it to work (and it still was not 100% reliable in operation). The use of a web-based repository of remote control information is excellent – you specify the model of device you want to control and it downloads the necessary codes. When you first register the software there is a set-up wizard, but that isn’t sufficient for complex av systems, however afterwards you can add / edit ‘actions’ as much as you like and you aren’t limited to the simplicity of that initial wizard. On the minus side i have decided to return my one because it hung / got itself into a strange state twice in 24 hours and could only be made to work by removing the battery and re-powering it; this despite having the latest firmware download – undoubtedly a firmware bug, but bad enough to mean i could not leave it for my wife too use in my absence. Also the unit emits a very annoying high pitched whine when on the charging cradle. Its electrical connection to the charging cradle is not very secure either. They look good, but the slightest touch or mis-alignment and it does not connect (blue light does not come on).

Not perfect, but a great product. I have had my harmony 1000 for about a year now, and am generally pleased with it. But my advice would be not to think of using it without the rf extender – it really is worth splashing out the extra for the extender. In my system, which i would say is typical, my components are in a cabinet nowhere near the tv. Without the extender it was a pain to make sure the remote was pointed in generally the right direction somewhere between the components cabinet and the tv. But with the extender i don’t need to point-and-shoot at all; in fact it works even from the bottom of the back garden, in the garage, in the loft, etc. Buy the extender at the same time you order the remote.

Finally, a universal that works. Set this up less that one hour controlling 8 devices. It just works and does it brilliantly. I’ve had harmony remotes in the past but this one feels solid and clearly has had a lot of thought put into the design and feel. Fully customizable and easy to set-up.
