As far as universal remote controls are concerned, the Logitech Harmony Elite is the big daddy of them all. With support for up to 15 different devices and its very own capacitive touchscreen, it’s power is undoubted.

It may need a little time and patience to eek the best out of it, but when you do, it will change your whole home entertainment game and right now you can get your own for a steal.

All of this power normally comes at a cost, and that cost can normally be anything up to $350. Right now it can be yours for just $230, and while few people would call that an impulse purchase, it’s one that we don’t think you’ll regret.

What makes the Logitech Harmony Elite so interesting is its ability to work with other home automation accessories that you might have, and the whole thing works with Alexa, too.

That can mean that turning on the TV, the cable box, the audio system, and having the big game start playing is all just a voice command away.

Other features include:

The most powerful and intuitive Harmony remote works with Alexa for voice control. All-in-one control of up to 15 home entertainment and connected home devices

Full color touchscreen: Simply swipe and tap to control channels, movies, volume, 50 favorite channels and smart home devices like Philips Hue lights

One-touch Activities: Touch an Activity like “Watch a Movie” to automatically power on and switch devices to the right settings; Compatible with Amazon’s Alexa for easy voice integration and activation

Harmony app: Turns iOS or Android smartphones or tablets into personal universal remote controls for the whole house

Closed cabinet control: Included Harmony Hub lets you control devices in closed cabinets, or even when away from home

Convenient charging station: Keeps your remote powered and within reach

If you are in need of a universal remote anyway, this will no doubt be more costly than anything you were already considering. That shouldn’t put you off – this is the very best universal remote control that money can buy right now.
