The Best of the Best Logitech Harmony Accessories

Man Accessorizing- Love the Tee Shirt Dude

You probably already know that Swiss-based Logitech offers an entire family of the best universal remotes around.

Dubbed Harmony, the remotes include the Harmony Elite, Express, Companion, Smart Control, Harmony Hub, 950, 650, 350 and others.

You probably also know that with Harmony Hub based remotes you can control your smart home gear as well as the devices that live your entertainment center.

But did you know that there are several accessories available that can make your Harmony set up even better? No joke. And they include everything from protective covers to extra rechargeable batteries to IR mini blasters to external keyboards that make it easier to navigate YouTube from your couch.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at some of the coolest accessories available today.


Best Keyboard for Harmony Remotes

OK, we will start out with what is probably the sexiest accessory here—it’s the Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard. If you are addicted to YouTube like me, you will eventually find yourself watching it on your Smart TV. [I know, I know nerd alert.]

However, the experience of searching for videos and navigating anything that requires entering text is downright painful, even using my Harmony remote.

The Smart Keyboard is here to ease your pain. This keyboard is just great for any activity that requires entering text.  It also works great with your favorite streaming media players like Roku, FireTV, and Apple TV as well as services like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube TV , and more. I have this keyboard and a Harmony Elite remote [and a Neeo and an Express still in the box]. However, I very rarely use the remote anymore because the keyboard and Harmony app do nearly everything I want.

Digital Trends does a nice job reviewing the Smart Keyboard.

And this guide from Logitech shows what the setup process is like:

NOTE: The keyboard uses the ‘Ultimate’ Hub as opposed to the ‘Home’ Hub so you’ll need to do some configuring if you have the Home Hub that comes with newer Hub-based remotes. But you can get them to play nice together👍👍.

Works with:

All Harmony remotes and as a standalone device.

logitech harmony accessories covers

If you’re looking for a protective cover for your Harmony Elite remote, check out the MOTONG Logitech Harmony Elite Remote Control Case. The two-piece design makes it super easy to install this over your existing Harmony remote, and it will protect your Harmony investment against dust and scratches.

The protective case is made of high-quality silicone and leaves Elite’s LCD color touchpanel exposed so you have access to your favorite activities.

MoimTech Silicone Case for Logitech Harmony 650, Logitech Harmony 700

Awesomeness

logitech harmony accessories cases

This silicone case is currently “Amazon’s Choice” for covering your Harmony 650 or 700 model remote and it’s our choice too. It also seems to be a fan favorite judging from Amazon’s customer reviews [click on stars to see them]. It comes in a variety of colors [subject to availability], and there is even a glow in the dark version that makes finding the remote super easy during dark movie nights.  The “anti-drop” design makes the remote more shock absorbent, which could help to prolong the life of your remote. The main negative is that you need to remove the cover when it comes time to replace the batteries, which can be frequent with the 650 model that does not have rechargeable batteries.

kwmobile Silicone Case Compatible with Harmony Touch & Ultimate – Anti Slip Protective Cover for TV Remote Control – Black

Our rating (out of 100)

best logitech harmony accessories

The KWmobile case compatible with Harmony Touch Ultimate has an anti-slip protective cover and it comes in black. Unlike similar covers, this cover will let you charge your phone without having to remote it.  This is a huge win as far as remote covers go. Perhaps more importantly, the silicone material will help to protect your remote from dust, spillage, and scratches. It makes it more shock proof too.  At least one customer has complained about breaking the remote after dropping it on a marble floor.  This remote solves that problem nicely.

Works with:

Harmony Touch and Ultimate

MoimTech Logitech Harmony Smart Control Case

best logitech harmony accessories

This case is specifically designed for the Harmony Smart Control remote. It has a custom fit that exposes all functions of the remote so they are available for use while still offering solid protection. Customers who own this remote swear by it.

While we did not purchase this and are unable to test it out first hand, the company claims that the Silicone material is anti-slip.  If anyone can vouch for this and will leave a comment below, I would appreciate it greatly. I actually think this makes the Harmony Smart Control Remote look better. Don’t you?

Best Harmony IR Mini Blasters and Accessories

Next up on our list of the best Logitech Harmony accessories are IR mini blasters and related equipment.

The primary benefit of an IR blaster is that extends the reach of the Harmony remote to give you better control over your devices. For example, by positioning the IR emitter outside of a cabinet where your devices are stored, it will be like the device is in the same location where you place the emitter (i.e., outside of the cabinet). Essentially this gives you “line of sight” from the remote to devices that would not otherwise have it.

This video from Logitech gives some helpful tips on Hub and Mini Blaster Placement. The video was made for the Smart Control remote but it applies to other remotes as well, so check it out.

 

Original Logitech IR Mini Blaster (Emitter)

If you just need a couple of ir mini blasters, this is the way to go.  However, this product is actually mislabeled on Amazon. This is the same mini blaster that will work for all of the Harmony line, not just Smart Control like it says in the title.

Doh. They are definitely losing a few sales there for sure. It is also not clear that you get TWO min blasters when you order this. Customers suggest that you buy Velcro tape to hold them in place. Good idea, we agree.

Works with:

  • Any Harmony remote that supports IR blasters

OK, this is JUST the adapter as shown, it does NOT include the emitter. If you need a full blaster, see the other products here.  However, customers who need and purchase this say that it just works like a “champ.”

Works with:

  • Any Harmony Hub based remote

Logitech Harmony Precision IR Cables

best logitech harmony accessories

Next on our list of best Logitech Harmony accessories are these precision IR cables. If you simply want to buy Harmony’s OEM Precision IR Cables, they are not available on Amazon at this time. You can see third party cables, here.  However, you CAN buy these directly from Logitech here, although they are more pricey.  TNP makes some very inexpensive extenders that are highly rated and are also “Amazon’s Choice” at the time of this writing. However, you will need to buy an adapter  (3.5mm to 2.5mm) to get this to work with the Harmony Hub.

Works with:

  • Any Harmony Hub based remote

Best IR Extenders /Repeaters for Logitech Harmony

Best Logitech Harmony Accessories: IR Extender System

Our rating (out of 100)
100%

best logitech harmony accessories

If you are looking for an IR extender kit to improve the performance of your Harmony IR remote and control devices out of sight behind cabinets this is the kit you want.  It’s more expensive than other options, sure. But you need to look no further than the 300+ customers reviews on Amazon to know that this kit just works as advertised.  This is not likely necessary if you own a newer Harmony Hub based remote such as Harmony Elite [although it could improve performance for Elite as well depending on our setup].

Works with:

  • Any Harmony IR based remote and other IR remotes as well
  • Ideal for Harmony legacy remote setups the like 1100, 900, One, 700, 650 and 300

First and foremost, the company has fixed the issue with the blinking lights that customers have complained about in the past on Amazon.  This can be used to extend the range of your Harmony remotes to multiple rooms and TVs if set up properly. Sadly, the directions that come with this product do not walk you through step by step.  However, a customer on Amazon provides some simple guidance. Look under the Customer questions and answer section for help with understanding the setup.  This is a good elegant solution for those who want to avoid purchasing a 2nd Harmony Hub. Customers say they love that the receivers are so tiny.

  • Harmony Hub based remotes

Best Logitech Harmony Accessories: Power Supplies & Adapters

What’s interesting it that these adapters seem to be elusive when trying to find them on Amazon using their search feature.  However, I didn’t want to bore you by listing a whole of slew of adapters for every Harmony product here.  Instead if you click the button below, it will take you to a page that shows all of the adapters sorted by average customer review. You can then scroll or type CTRL-F to quickly find the one that you want for the product you own, with one notable exception, the Harmony Elite power supply, which you can find here: LGM AC/DC Adapter/Adaptor for Logitech Harmony Elite Remote Control.

Works with:

  • All Harmony remotes that will take a charge

Best Logitech Harmony Accessories: PlayStation Adapters

PlayStation 3 and 4 Adapter for Logitech Harmony Remotes

Our rating (out of 100)
95%
best logitech harmony accessories

While Harmony’s massive device database will let you control over 270,00 devices including most gaming systems, PlayStation 4 will not work without this adapter.  The product is officially licensed by Sony Interactive Entertainment, which means you know it will just work to control your P24. It will work with nearly all Harmony remotes. It will let you control the PS4 system, media, and apps through your Logitech Harmony remote and you can combine with Harmony “activities” for a full multimedia gaming experience.

Lazy Tech TV does a nice job with reviewing the adapter for PS3. The PS4 adapter pretty much works the same.

Leave us a comment below if you have experience using these adapters.  I would love to know how you like it.

Works With:

  • Harmony 350, 650, 700, 880, 890, and 950
  • Harmony Elite, Hub and Ultimate
  • Other Harmony remotes will likely work as well
