What is the Logitech Harmony Express?
Product Summary: The Harmony Express is Logitech’s newest remote control with a heavy focus on using Amazon Alexa to control your devices using your voice. Unlike other Harmony products, it doesn’t come with the Harmony Hub, but instead, you use a new “blaster” to coordinate between the remote and your devices. The remote supports a broad selection of Alexa commands and includes a find-lost-remote feature that lets you ring an alarm on the remote when it goes missing inside your sofa. It isn’t as cool as the Logitech Harmony Elite in our opinion, but it will give the best support for Alexa in a remote out there.

About This Specifications Sheet
As part of the due diligence in preparing for our reviews about universal remotes, we noticed that full, detailed specifications in a tabular format were not available online. While the vendor and even major review sites like CNET provide some detail, no site provides a comprehensive level of specifications datasheet detail on a single page. Our aim is to remedy this with this new format. Please leave us a comment below and let us know what you think. If you have thoughts for improving on this format, we would love to hear those as well. Thanks!
