I always wanted to get a Logitech Harmony Remotes for my television and media player, but they are pretty expensive, finally they announced something more affordable which is the Logitech Harmony 200. It will be available in Singapore by early September 2011 for a recommended retail price of S$39. Hopefully just in time for Comex 2011 which is happening from 1st to 4th September 2011 at Suntect City.
I just checked the Harmony’s Supported Devices page and it supports my room television setup!
SINGAPORE – Aug 16, 2011 — Whether you are replacing a lost or broken remote or just want a remote that is easier to use and works with the devices you have, Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) today announced the new Logitech Harmony 200 Remote, which brings the excellence of its award-winning Harmony remotes to people with simpler home entertainment systems.
“Three remotes just to watch TV – that’s a reality for many people, but it doesn’t have to be,” said Prasenjit Sarkar, Director of South East Asia, Logitech. “We believe that no one should have to deal with the headache of multiple remotes and the clutter and confusion they can cause. The new Harmony 200 remote can replace up to three remotes after you complete a brief online setup. And once you’re set up, you’re ready to enjoy your favorite shows and movies with just one click. Getting to your favorite shows has never been easier.”
Thanks to the Harmony online setup, you simply create and account, enter the devices you have and then connect your remote to a computer – we do the rest for you. And because Harmony remotes support more than 5,000 brands and over 225,000 devices, you can be confident that your remote will work with all your devices from yesterday, today and tomorrow.
Once your remote is up and running, you can finally enjoy home entertainment easily and intuitively. For example, the “Watch TV” button lets you turn on or off up to three devices – such as your TV, cable/satellite box and speakers – with the press of one button. The large buttons are easy to find and recognizable by touch, even in the dark.
The Logitech Harmony 200 Remote is the newest edition to the award-winning line of Harmony remotes that includes the Logitech Harmony 300 Remote which replaces up to four devices; the color-screen and rechargeable Logitech Harmony 700 Remote, and the flagship Logitech Harmony One Remote with its stunning touch screen display.
