In your hands lies the power of whole home control, so let’s show you how to get to grips with it
Before you get started, grab your phone and install the Harmony app, then choose ‘Setup new hub’. Now connect the hub to your mains power and wait for about 30 seconds. Once this time is up, the red LED at the front should be blinking. If not, press the reset button on the back to get it working.

Any devices found will appear in the app, but if not, or you want to add one at a later date, just tap the ‘Home Control’ option to add them. To add regular electricals, choose ‘Entertainment devices’ and manually add the make and model of the device. Once a device is added, Harmony will power it on and test it works.
pair the hub
Provided Bluetooth is turned on and your phone is connected to your Wi-Fi network, the Harmony app should automatically locate the Harmony hub and pair it with your phone. Once it does so, enter your Wi-Fi network password to connect the hub to it. Now log in to an existing Logitech account or create a new one.
The Harmony app will automatically create activities based on the devices you’ve added, but if not then you can create new ones using the stepby-step across the page. To select between devices or Activities using the Elite, tap the respective tab underneath the screen and tap the device or activity on screen.
set up the remote
Once you’ve logged in, Harmony will ask you whether you want to import the settings from an old Harmony remote (if you have one) or continue setting up the Elite afresh by selecting ‘No, set up a new one’. In the next screen Harmony will automatically add any devices it finds on the Wi-Fi network.

If you want Activities to kick in automatically without you having to lift a finger, create a schedule for each one. Go to the app and in the menu, select Harmony Setup > Add/Edit devices & activities > Activities. Select the Activity, tap Schedule, turn it on and choose what day to run, and a start and end time.
“If you want to get the ultimate control over every single one of the entertainment devices and smart home gadgets in your home, there really isn’t a better way to do so than the Harmony Elite.” Nick Odantzis, deputy editor
