Logitech improves Harmony integration into Sonos

by Volker Weber

Harmony LI

I don't have a Harmony Hub but this sounds promising.

Comments

Ich habe seit geraumer Zeit einen Harmony Hub mit der zugehörigen Fernbedienung (ohne Display und sonstigen Schnickschnack). Läuft. Schaltet zuverlässig alle Geräte (AV Receiver, Sonos, Beamer, ...) ein und aus mit sog. Gesten. Kein Ärger mehr weil ich mal die FB nicht auf das Gerät gezielt habe (Infrarot ist passé, geht alles über WLAN).
Für Sonos muß ich immer noch die "Play" Taste drücken, dann spielt der zuletzt gehörte Sender los (ähnlich wie die Funktion der Mute Taste). Ich weiß gar nicht welche Verbesserungen in Punkto Sonos ich mir wünschen würde - für mich tut es schon immer genau so wie ich es brauche seit ich das Ding gekauft habe (war Ende 2016). Sonst wäre es auch zurückgegangen :-).

I have been very pleased with the harmony remote and hub.
It's let me fill a drawer with remotes we don't need and lets the technolgy just "work" for my SO.

After reading this I looked into the Hub. Sounds very promising.
some reviews claim that the the hub will not work without one of the remotes. Is that true? And do you have any experiences with non working actions? And the final question is: Is the concept of the reflecting IR signals working? How did you place the unit and the additional "Booster"? Thank you in advance.

@Torsten:
Nein, man braucht nicht zwingend eine Fernbedienung. Hier steuert die Heimautomation den Hub an und startet z.b. den Staubsaugerrobby per IR.
IR ist nicht wirklich leistungsvoller als an einer normalen Fernbedienung

Have been waiting for this. Got the hub package a year ago but the programming was limited by only allowing one sonos Speaker.

The true benefit is to use with Alexa. So you tell Alexa the activity name and it will do it. Of course you can use the harmony app but ? If you have Alexa.

Have set up a few activities with different speaker groups and will test later. Listening to BR Klassik broadcast of Walkuere.
