Logitech has a smart home system called Harmony which allows users to connect to many different types of IoT (Internet of Thing) devices with a Harmony remote and a central Harmony hub. It’s easy for you to control the lights, lock the door, close the blinds, and turn down the thermostat with just a couple button presses or through your phone.
Now Logitech is bringing their hub technology to the TV, the existing central hub of people’s homes. While you still need a hub, you can easily connect to all your devices and control them. They teased this app back in February, and it seemed like this may be exclusive to Sony TVs.
That’s not the case. It’s going to be available for any device, but with additional functionality solely for Sony TVs. They interface with Sony’s menu UI to display quick actions that the user can take without having to leave the on TV content.
The app is free to download to most Android TVs. The Shield TV doesn’t seem to be supported at the moment, but you can sideload it from APKMirror. Logitech is making clear the app is still in beta, so expect some bugs and app updates.
