Logitech has just announced an Alexa-powered Harmony Express universal remote for the connected home. Here are the details.
Logitech has taken the next logical step in the progression of its Harmony range of intelligent remote controls by expanding the range of voice-activated controls supported for Amazon Alexa on an Echo or Echo Dot.
When it comes to universal remote controls, Logitech tends to be the first name on everyone's lips, especially when you're looking for something that does a little bit more than turn the volume up and down. Logitech recently launched a new remote to add to its already growing Harmony lineup. But this particular model isn't so cheap, and with a name like 'Logitech Harmony Elite', that comes as no real surprise. Sounds expensive, doesn't it?
It's no secret that a technology company may file a large number of patent applications, a lot of which can sit awaiting approval for years before anything becomes of them. A large majority of these applications may result in nothing exciting, whilst some form part of a larger jigsaw, but on a whole; companies tend to be able to go about their patent filing business without much interruption.
