I've been looking at getting a Logitech Harmony Hub but it's been OOS at Amazon. Just checked & it's back in stock for 99.99 but if you select the deal with the echo dot, the total price is £114.99 saving you £34.99

Why would you want a Logitech Harmony Hub without the remote control?

Because you can download the harmony app onto a phone/tablet and use that instead.....or of course, you can now voice control with alexa.....

Having said that, would I pay £65 for just the hub? No....

Seems a bit daft to me. I have the Logitech Harmony Elite. It's brilliant. But I wouldn't be content with just using the app all the time and not having the actual remote.

Cant speak for myself but my friend just uses the hub and alexa to control his entire entertainment system

If you have Alexa, then you don't really need the remote as its purpose is to work most of your entertainment system with your voice and the hub as a bridge there for making all remotes redundant. But the hub is crap!

I have the Logitech hub and an Echo. The Harmony hub skill is very poor indeed so much so that I have stopped using it and gone back to the mobile app. Maybe it will improve with future releases but it really isn't there yet.

I've got the Elite remote and hub which is brilliant. How well does the hub integrate with the Amazon stuff? Does it actually work like "watch tv" and it turns it on, or what?

I found that the Logitech stuff just didn't work reliably. Panasonic TV, FireTV and Panasonic soundbar and sometimes it would switch the TV on to FTV and other times it would require resetting and lost everything.

I returned the Logitech to Amazon. I do still use echo dot but voice recognition isn't 100% reliable.

I have the hub, the elite remote and the echo. I'd say don't buy it if you're going to rely on the echo. It works but is intermittent and incredibly frustrating. I guess using the app would work but the elite is invaluable, makes life far simpler and user friendly for all the family.

ahh for me it was the elite which caused me to swear so unreliable.

alexa needs to be trained on English as spoken in England I think tho lol

good deal however there's no way I would get this as I would want the companion remote with it. as an owner of multiple echo's and a harmony hub with remote I cant speak highly enough of either of them. The echo is great when placed in the correct location (next to a wall will stop it working 100% of the time). the harmony hub is about as reliable as you could possibly wish for with something like that. You have to accept that as it is not a direct connection and more of a manipulation of the surrounding environment, it will never be as reliable as some other IoT devices. As such, factoring in a 5% tolerance for failure, it works perfectly. The only issue i have is with turning off my speakers (which then screws up the wake up routines as they will subsequently send a power command to the speakers which results in them being turned off). The easy remedy for this is to assign an unused button on the remote to fire off a manual power command to the speakers to turn them on, or use the app. The app is slow and clunky though and something you wouldnt want to use as a regular interface when controlling your entertainment setup. Brilliant as a secondary controller but definately not a primary controller.

I know this is a fairly old comment, but for others' benefit; you should note that you can purchase the Harmony 950 or Harmony Ultimate One as a standalone remote... These both support the hub, so some people may first purchase the remote and then want to upgrade to get the Hub later. Naturally, you may want to do it the other way around (buy the hub, use your smartphone or Alexa) and add the remote later. This is what I did a while back when I bought the Harmony Touch, I then upgraded to the Smart Control which included hub and companion remote.
