What customers say about "Key Specs"
Logitech Harmony Elite (915-000256) Remote Control, Hub and App, works with Alexa
  • Now that the transport buttons have been moved to the proper location unlike the Harmony Ultimate, this remote control is absolutely awesome.
  • I upgraded my Ultimate home with this report. They are very similar but I much prefer the button layout on the Elite.
  • Great set up and ease of use. Really like the button locations and the setup on my iPhone.
  • Excellent range, control and response time a true all entertainment center controller.
  • Easy to use remote. Buttons are kinda small. Could be a little bigger so buttons would be better to see.
  • Buttons respond poorly. Doesn’t stay programed.
Logitech Harmony Ultimate (915-000201) All in One Remote with Customizable Touch Screen and Closed Cabinet RF Control
  • We love the ease for finding tv stations with the favorite button
  • This really is an awesome remote and I have always had very good experiences with Logitech products. Customize buttons, color touch screen buttons, very smart remote.
  • Once you get used to where the buttons are this remote is one of the best I've used.
  • Family Friendly remote for all ages anymore can push one button and turn everything on you need
  • The harmony hub gives better range to the remote as it includes an it repeater you can place further away if the remote doesn’t make direct contact with a component
  • I really dislike where the pause/play/fast forward buttons are located. First, they are at the very top of the remote which makes for an uncomfortable grip if you DVR shows and like to fast forward through commercials.
  • The pause/play/fast forward buttons are not prominent enough and I find myself pushing the button immediately below it instead. I would have much preferred these particular buttons were more elevated and located at the bottom of the remote. Otherwise, great features!!

What customers say about "Features"
Logitech Harmony Elite (915-000256) Remote Control, Hub and App, works with Alexa
  • Logitech's ever growing list of compatible devices is one thing that has remained consistent and a big part of why I love the Harmony line.
  • Very easy to program. Compatible with every device to date including my Ecobee.
  • Very sensitive touch screen but we love how easy it was to program.
  • Awesome , must have remote! Control everything including wifi bulbs and thermostats.
  • The screen looks like it's out of date and it is slow to respond in my opinion.
  • The touch screen functions are difficult to use. Upon selecting/touching an app or button, the first touch does not register, it some times takes several try's.
Logitech Harmony Ultimate (915-000201) All in One Remote with Customizable Touch Screen and Closed Cabinet RF Control
  • Has gesture controls on separate screen for thing like changing channels and volume. You define activities such as Watch TV or play Xbox, then program the tethered remote with the new instructions. Some corrections can be made on the remote itself.
  • Great remote! The screen is very sensitive so it changes screens quick.
  • I love the touch screen. I like how it's so customizable and you can add channel shortcuts to the screen so you're not constantly using the guide
  • The new software is easier to set up the remotes. The screen is nice and bright and you can swipe between different screens
  • Compatible with all of my devices, even some older equipment.
  • It's easy to hit the wrong button on the touch screen. I don't like that the off button is so close to rewind as well.
