Looking for something to control absolutely everything in your entertainment center, plus your RF-enabled refrigerator? Then unfortunately you're going to have to cough up some dough. But if you hurry and head over to Amazon, you can do it for considerably less: the retailer is selling the Logitech Harmony Ultimate Remote for $199.99. That's pretty insane for a remote, even one with customizable controls and a touchscreen, but it's actually $150 off of the retail price.
The Harmony Ultimate and its included Harmony Hub control up to fifteen devices via infrared, radio frequency, or Bluetooth, including at least some game consoles and set-top boxes like the Roku or the Fire TV. (Dedicated Android fans will be happy to know that NVIDIA's SHIELD also supports Harmony remotes.) If programming is too tedious even with the touchscreen, you can hook it up to a PC and download pre-made profiles instead. The Harmony app for Android allows your phone or tablet to perform more or less the same commands as the remote itself, and it works with Logitech's Harmony Home Control automated home system as well.
Like most ultra-premium electronics, the Harmony Ultimate gets discounted fairly often, but it's still rare to see it go below the $300 mark. This is a Gold Box deal, so it expires after today and it includes free shipping, plus extra-speedy shipping for Amazon Prime members.
