Having put every last entertainment device in your living room under the control of the Harmony Remote, Logitech is ready to take over the rest of the house. The company firmly stepped into the home control market today, releasing two high-end home remotes and the necessary Logitech Harmony Home Hub, which manages the traffic between the remotes and your home’s door locks, garage door opener, thermostat, lights, and window shades among other devices. Interestingly, the most important part of the Logitech Harmony Home series is also one of the cheapest. The Logitech Harmony Home Hub, which... Read more...
Earlier this month, Logitech bolstered the featureset of its Harmony Ultimate and Smart Control remotes by adding support for SONOS' wireless speaker system. Today, it's become clear that the company didn't want to risk the Harmony brand leaving our head, as it's now added support for one of the hottest products out there: Nest Learning Thermostat. With this new functionality, you'll never have to endure getting up off of the couch while watching Game of Thrones just because the room temperature is as cold as the hearts of many on the show. Instead, you can simply pick up the remote and beam your... Read more...
Who would have thought that the standard bearer of the Internet of Things (IoT) wave would be a company that makes smart, connected thermostats and alarms? Yet indeed, Nest announced the Nest Developer Program with numerous partners that should lead to a rapid proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) innovations and related products. Call it the Google bump if you will. Nest’s acquisition by the search giant brought with it a nearly unlimited amount of money, and now Nest is no longer just a cool-looking connected thermostat or a fancy smoke alarm; it’s becoming the center of an IoT...

Logitech has added more functionality to some of its remote control products, and with them the company is aiming for a smarter home. The Logitech Harmony Ultimate and Logitech Harmony Smart Control now have the ability to control SONOS wireless HIFi System speakers and Philips Hue lights, and they offer speech-to-text capabilities through the associated Harmony App. The speech-to-text functionality is particularly useful for searching for content on your set-top device such as the new Amazon Fire TV, and the app uses Siri or Android Speech Recognition (depending, obviously, on your device). This... Read more...
We love a good gaming mouse around here, and Logitech unveiled a doozy with the G502 Proteus Core, which is designed to let you tune the mouse to your preferred weight, balance, tracking speed, and more--as well as a given gaming surface “unique physical and reflective characteristics”. There are a series of 3.6g weights, 11 programmable buttons, a quick scroll wheel, 3 onboard profiles, mechanical microswitches, and a 1-millisecond report rate. It sports a Delta Zero sensor with a DPI range of 200-12,000. The Logitech Proteus Core Gaming Mouse will be available this month for $79.99... Read more...
Logitech is certainly no stranger to the living room. The company boasts a range of universal remotes and keyboards designed to help you navigate channels on your swank HDTV and HTPC, but up until now, the company was missing an illuminated keyboard option. Not anymore. Logitech today looks to brighten your home entertainment setup with the "Illuminated Living Room Keyboard K830" (just K830 from here on out). The K830 is a rechargeable plank with backlit keys, an integrated touchpad, and advanced wireless connectivity so you can click from your couch or bed when the lights go dim. "More and more...

Universal remotes typically fall into one of two categories: Logitech's and all others. We've played with several of Logitech's Harmony remotes over the years and rarely have we been disappointed. This time around, Logitech is taking things a step further by announcing its Harmony Smart Keyboard, which is a wireless keyboard and touchpad combination designed specifically for controlling streaming media in your living room. You can program the Harmony Smart Keyboard to work without up to eight devices from a library of more than 225,000 gadgets from over 5,000 brands. It also comes with a Harmony... Read more...
Logitech wants to turn your iPhone 5S, iPhone 5, and/or iPod touch (5th generation) into a legitimate mobile gaming platform. In order to do that, Logitech today introduced its PowerShell Controller + Battery accessory. Simply slip your mobile device running iOS 7 into Logitech's accessory just like you would with a standard case and suddenly you have access to console-like controls, including a D-pad, shoulder triggers, and face buttons. "We designed this controller to deliver a true console-gaming experience on an iOS 7 mobile device," said Ehtisham Rabbani, general manager of the Logitech gaming... Read more...
When Logitech revealed its new Wireless All-in-One Keyboard TK820 last month, it immediately caught my eye. After upgrading my home theater PC to Windows 8, I've often thought it would be nice to take advantage of some of the new gesture controls while browsing the web and using my HTPC from the comfort of my couch. I looked at keyboards a little bit after upgrading but hadn't found quite what I wanted so I put the idea of getting a different keyboard on hold. When I was given the chance to test the TK820 for myself, I jumped at the opportunity and hoped this could be the keyboard I had been searching... Read more...
One of the world’s premiere PC mouse makers wants you to ditch your mouse. Logitech’s new Wireless All-in-One Keyboard TK820 has a built-in in touchpad that is meant to completely replace your mouse. Keyboard touchpads aren’t new, but the TK820's touchpad is more than a way to move your cursor: it also accepts up to 13 Windows 8 gestures – not to mention the zoom and swipe gestures that you’ve been using on tablets. The keyboard features Logitech’s PerfectStroke technology, which makes for even key depression, even if your finger catches only a portion of the... Read more...
Logitech is going for a certain look and feel with its Z600 Bluetooth stereo speakers, which is to say that it’s trying for a sleek, high-end-looking product that matches the luster of ultrabooks. (Especially MacBooks, it would seem.) The twin speakers are quite fetching, with graceful curves and a long, tall stance. They’re sort of an aluminum-white in color, with speaker grills covering most of the outside and a white stripe down one side that contains the power button, Bluetooth button, and 3.5mm input. The flat top offers a volume control that you can manipulate by gliding your... Read more...
Logitech has a long history of developing products for consumers, who traditionally have valued style and comfort, perhaps more so than corporate purchasers. Its business components are stylish, too, and are designed to match durability with comfort. To give us a feel for what Logitech can do for business users, the company sent us two of its headsets: We took the USB-powered Logitech H650e ($89.99) and the wireless H820e ($199.99) for a spin and have our thoughts posted here...  Logitech H650e and H820e Enterprise Headsets Review...

Over the past few years, many companies have altered their approach to the enterprise. Where IT departments once made purchasing recommendations based entirely on their own view of the company’s requirements, many administrators now get (often unsolicited) input from employees who don’t want to get saddled with computers, tablets, or accessories that don’t fully meet their needs. Nowadays, it’s not uncommon for companies to let employees choose their work laptops or make suggestions. With so many employees influencing purchases, computer- and accessory makers have been quick... Read more...
Universal remotes were all the rage for some time, but these days, it's clear that the phones most of us already carry are fully equipped to handle remote duties. Logitech has announced the Harmony Ultimate Hub, an "appcessory" that fully converts your phone into a remote. And it'll soon be available as a standalone purchase. As you may know, the Harmony Hub is included with the Logitech Harmony Ultimate and Logitech Harmony Smart Control, but with the standalone unit, everyone in the house will be able to download the free Harmony Smartphone App, and turn their smartphone into a personal universal...
