This got lost in a previous thread for just the hub direct from Logitech.

According to the product description the hub IS included.

This is a good price for hub, remote and dot, not sure why cold
#2
I think this is an excellent price, heat from me...... can't understand why it's so cold.
#3
Hub alone is £99 (£80 odd through the recent deal).

Great deal IMO.

Excellent deal. I'm guessing someone started the votes with cold then all the sheep just followed without reading. A chain reaction of fools not knowing a deal when they see one.

I've well and truly fallen in the home automation black hole. It starts with the soft stuff, a hive bulb or two... you tell yourself you can stop anytime. then you move on to the hard stuff and before you know it your three echo dots, rolling your own home automation server and a royally annoyed wife. this is the final part of the puzzle.. heat added

Hot - very Hot. Was sceptical that you get the hub included but if you look at the question and answers -several confirm you get the hub and the remote. And the remote/hub £119 is a similar price to the John Lewis site so pretty certain this does include hub - so you're getting the echo included for £10. Should hopefully be delivered tomorrow. Will update thread tomorrow night to confirm what arrives....

Just to confirm, the hub comes with it, as I got it today. Super slick remote. Adds playbar super easily. Sky box and Hue just as easy. Now just messing with Alexa.

Bargain including the Amex £15 offer.

Thanks for posting this.

Harmony hub has been around for a while, and has been under £50 in the past. The integration with Alexa has helped push up the price, particularly in the past week with native Alexa support coming to the UK. The Echo Dot was £39 a few weeks ago.
I have this setup but paid £40 less.
FYI If you want to integrate TV control and Alexa have a look at Broadlink RM mini 3 and the Broadlink RM Tasker Plugin android app.

Also just to confirm it comes with the Hub - its not pictured on the box either so was beginning to wonder - it is listed on the contents list on the reverse of the box and it is in there ....

thanks for all the feedback guys, makes posting it worthwhile.

3camels states lowest has been 63 for this but that looks like one day only. Average is 117. So with the dot which has been 30 at its lowest I would say a good deal.
Main thing, does it work well. Does it integrate well and with echo and send commands quickly. SHOULD I BUY IT?

Sorry, it was first gen hub and companion. Basically the same but with the newer companion remote has extra buttons for lights and sockets.
It works well with Alexa, you can either use the native Harmony skill or use the Yonomi app.
I've had harmony remotes for years, it can take some time to get the perfect setup. But once setup correctly you'll never go back to juggling half a dozen remotes.

Hi OP thanks for this deal. Can we 100% confirm this comes with all 3 items? Also were they dispatched separately? Packaged separately? I only ask because the remote is being delivered today and I wondered if the hub was packed with the remote or the echo dot? TIA
#18
The echo dot is packaged separately from the Hub/Remote - they may come in the same box but my dot came separately from the Hub/remote and they were dispatched at slightly different times (I assume they were coming from different depots). The hub will definitely be packaged with the remote - they (remote and hub) come in a single retail packaged box (without a picture of the hub on the box)
#19
definitely all three items, the dot arrived at the same time but was dispatched from a different distribution centre. the hub and companion remote were in the same box.

I have tried this. It is a pain to set up and still some things it will not do. eg. turn on the PS4.
Voice control is also a pain, Alexa ask Harmony to turn the TV on. long winded. I just want Alexa to do it, not ask someone else to do it for her. Considering a return. Am I missing something that would make things easier?

Download an app called Yonomi for your phone. Add Harmony routines/processes via the app and then you can just say 'Alexa turn on XXX'.

A San Diego TV station sparked complaints this week – after an on-air report about a girl who ordered a dollhouse via her parents' Amazon Echo caused Echoes in viewers' homes to also attempt to order dollhouses.

Telly station CW-6 said the blunder happened during a Thursday morning news package about a Texan six-year-old who racked up big charges while talking to an Echo gadget in her home. According to her parents' Amazon account, their daughter said: "Can you play dollhouse with me and get me a dollhouse?" Next thing they knew, a $160 KidKraft Sparkle Mansion dollhouse and four pounds of sugar cookies arrived on their doorstep.

During that story's segment, a CW-6 news presenter remarked: "I love the little girl, saying 'Alexa ordered me a dollhouse'."

That, apparently, was enough to set off Alexa-powered Echo boxes around San Diego on their own shopping sprees. The California station admitted plenty of viewers complained that the TV broadcast caused their voice-controlled personal assistants to try to place orders for dollhouses on Amazon.

We'll take this opportunity to point out that voice-command purchasing is enabled by default on Alexa devices.

I thought the whole point of having the hub was so that all the voice controls worked natively ?

I really want this, but only if it works like that, eg 'Alexa watch tv', 'Alexa turn the sound up' (on the tv), 'alexa turn to BBC1'. If all it can do is turn on/off the tv then it's not worth it IMO.
