Two weeks ago, we talked about Logitech’s new no-nonsense easy-to-use universal remote control: the Logitech Harmony 300. After careful study of universal remote control users, Logitech have discovered that there are people out there who don’t want all the bells and whistles, but rather require a universal remote solution that’s easy to use with the 3 or 4 devices that they have.
This is where the Logitech Harmony 300 comes into play. It doesn’t have any fancy LED color screens nor is it designed to control one hundred devices at the one time.
The Logitech Harmony 300 was made for the user who just has a basic home entertainment setup and want to control all of these simply with the one remote. Ignoring my gaming consoles, I have such a setup. My home entertainment systems is made up of a TV, Set top box, DVD player and Audio system – 4 devices. Setting up the Logitech Harmony 300 was as easy as 1-2-3.
Logitech Harmony 300 Setup Steps – So Easy!
Here are the four simple steps you take to setting up your Logitech Harmony 300:
1. Note down the manufacturer and model details of each of my devices (normally on front face of device)
2. Connect the remote to my PC / Mac via provided USB Cable
3. Enter in all your device information that you noted earlier
4. Done! Now you can start controlling all your devices via the Logitech Harmony 300
The whole exercise took around 4 minutes and was super easy. We’ve now hidden the other remote controls and use the Logitech Harmony 300 on a daily basis – love it!
