Logitech’s Harmony remotes are oft considered the supreme universal remote, able to control all your infrared devices from one unit with ease. After 20 years, Logitech is giving these devices the axe, ceasing the manufacture of models across the entire Harmony line.
Software and support will still be provided to customers, but as supplier stock wanes, the remotes will eventually disappear.
Logitech’s blog post on the matter hasn’t provided a reason for nixing the remotes, but it’s possible that this is in response to more and more devices shipping with smart device control these days, such that the humble universal remote is no longer in demand.
Customers with older equipment might be out of luck though – with not many alternatives offering the compatibility, ease of programming and use that the Harmony line boasts.
It’s a sad day for the home theatre enthusiast.
