Logitech integrates four new partners into Harmony ecosystem
Logitech Harmony has announced the integration of four new partners into the Harmony ecosystem -- the August Smart Lock, Ecobee Wi-Fi thermostats, LIFX Wi-Fi-enabled LED smart lights, and a wide range of Insteon products. The idea is to provide users with more capability to set up scenes, or Activities in Logitech's lexicon.
The products are now compatible with all Harmony Hub-based remotes.
Harmony already integrates with Philips hue, Nest, Honeywell and Lutron.
This is what Harmony tells consumers they can do with all of this integration:
Create a “Game of Thrones” Activity that triggers with one touch on your remote. Turns on your TV and sound system, tunes to HBO and automatically turns the lights red.
Create a “Good Morning” Activity that triggers when your alarm goes off at 6:00AM on weekdays. Automatically turns the lights on, turns up the heat a few degrees, starts the coffee brewing in the kitchen and tunes in to local news and traffic on TV.
Create an “Off to Work” Activity that you can trigger from your phone while pulling out of the driveway. Automatically turns off all your lights and entertainment devices, sets your thermostat to ‘away’ mode, and makes sure your doors are locked.
