Allows you to control many device types, including over network IR and Bluetooth, ideal for home automation via scenes, works with Hue lighting in addition to the usual expected AV equipment

Absolutely stupid price for a one-for-all, non-original remote control. Yes, you can have one remote for all your devices, wow. It's not worth £163 and anyone who thinks so must need their head reading. I own a Harmony Hub set that I bought for not far off this price, and I was stupid to buy that. It was a mistake.

Its not much of an upgrade over their previous remote (I have both). The elite has been £140 recently whilst the ultimate has been £85.

Yeah I think that was a prime deal unfortunately.. How do you get on with the hub?

I personally can't tell the difference between the two. I believe it's the same hub. I just wanted some dedicated buttons for my hue bulbs.
It doesn't work amazingly well with my current set up - the tv automatically turns off the receiver using ARC. I need to disable that somehow without disabling the ability to send Audio from the tv (Netflix) to the receiver.

The harmony works flawlessly I find -when everything is perfect with the equipment. It just takes one thing not to be on the right state and it all falls down. I can't even see what's wrong as all my equipment is behind a cupboard door :(

Depends on what you are integrating with though, if you just want a remote then I would agree, not quite sure what you were expecting, sounds like what you wanted it for could have been achieved in a much lesser device. But you start integrating with lighting etc and then this becomes a home control platform, integration with SmartThings then creates home automation across non connected devices..

I've pulled my order, going to do a bit more research and see if it's going to fill the need vs cost gap, qwerta369 has a point there. And I need it to be reliable, which if it's not I would sooner do things manually rather than automate badly :(

This is expensive but if you are a bit of a nerd its a good if pricey buy. I got the Elite for £139 earlier this year on amazon. I have a man cave in Spain which I am teching out. I already have things like smart locks, Smartthings, Hue lighting, and an Amazon Echo in addition to all of the usual bits of tech.

What I do really like is that I can operate my equipment in a number of ways using the Harmony kit. I can sit in the living room and say "Alexa run Movie Time." The Harmony will then turn the telly on, select the relevant input, turn my surround system on and select the correct input, turn the blu ray on, dim my lights and also turn the aircon on. I can also turn the aircon on in my flat when I get out the airport and have my cave nice and cool when I arrive.

However as much as I like the equipment I probably did pay a bit much. At the time I paid less than the going rate for the Ultimate. In hindsight I should have waited until the Ultimate dropped in prices as that have had the functionalist I needed at a third less of the cost.

If a cheapie all in one remote is all you need then buy that. If you want to do more with the remote - like interface with home automation - and can handle the cost then buy this. Otherwise the Ultimate is almost as good and will drop again in proce soon.

I have a few harmony remotes, very happy with them all and I would never go back to the standard pile of remotes. This is worth the upgrade from your normal remotes or a pre-ultimate harmony but not worth the jump from ultimate to elite.

The harmony isn't just a one-for-all remote, if you just want that then go for a cheap £10 one. Harmony requires a bit of research and playing but it's worth it in the end. Good price from the UK Amazon.
