Amazon is offering the Logitech Harmony Elite Remote bundled with a 2nd Generation Echo Dot for $287.58 shipped. This bundle represents a $350 value, the remote usually sells for $300 and the Dot has a list price of $50. Today’s deals are an effective all-time low on both products.
Just a week ago, Logitech announced that it would be adding support for Amazon’s Echo line on compatible Harmony products. This move allows users to control their TVs, smart home gear and more via Alexa. Logitech’s Harmony Elite is the Rolls-Royce of consumer home theater remotes. I’ve been using it for about a year now, and couldn’t be happier with the quality and interface. You’ll be able to control up to 15 devices at a time, including popular products like Philips Hue, SONOS and Nest (check out the entire 250,000 device library here). Logitech also offers a free smartphone app that brings the same functionality. Rated 4.1/5 stars by 375 Amazon customers.
The 2nd generation Echo Dot is a favorite of ours as well. It brings Alexa control to your home with the push of a button. Simply attach it to a speaker and you’re ready to get started. Rated 4.2/5 stars by nearly 1,200 Amazon reviewers.
Amazon is also offering a notable Echo Dot bundle that includes a WeMo Smart Plug for $72.99 shipped ($85 value, discount reflected in-cart). The WeMo Switch is one of the easiest ways to jump into home automation. It will turn on your lights, monitor energy usage, and much more. In addition to Echo Dot compatibility, the free WeMo smartphone app offers even deeper controls. Rated 3.7/5 stars from over 4,600.
Harmony Elite is the powerful, intuitive way to control your entertainment. But life doesn’t only happen in the living room. Or only at home for that matter. Harmony Elite goes beyond TV and movies. Far beyond. Use it to control the music from the kitchen, adjust the lights from across town, and the blinds according to the time of day. Compatible with Amazon’s Alexa for easy voice integration and activation. Get your lighting, locks, thermostat and more to work together for one-touch experiences like ‘welcome home’ or ‘good night’. Set room lighting to automatically dim when you start a movie. Turn on multiple devices at a touch, create custom schedules, or trigger them with sensors.
