Today Logitech (SIX:LOGN) (NASDAQ:LOGI) announced that you can now use your Logitech Harmony® Ultimate or Logitech Harmony® Smart Control to control additional devices including your SONOS® wireless HiFi System speakers, no matter where they are in the home. In addition to controlling playback and volume directly from your remote, you can access your Sonos Favorites playlists from the color touch-screen of the Harmony Ultimate or through your tablet or smartphone using the free Harmony App.

“With these added integrations we’re creating an even more robust Harmony ecosystem that makes it easier for you to create the optimum home-entertainment experience, including listening to your favorite playlists on Sonos wireless speakers, and setting your Philips Hue lights to the perfect brightness and color for watching a movie,” said Chad Thompson, senior director of marketing and product management for Logitech’s digital home business group. “Harmony’s heritage lies in control of your home-theater devices, and with this update you can easily create the ideal entertainment experience, for the living room and beyond.”
With the speech-to-text capabilities available today through the free Harmony App, searching for content on your streaming device, including the newly compatible Amazon Fire TV, is even faster. Through the Harmony App, you can now bring up the search field in the streaming media app, and use the mobile device’s keyboard to enter text or dictate the desired search terms. The voice recognition is enabled by Siri® voice recognition software or Android™ Speech Recognition, depending on your operating system.
This software update also enhances the Harmony remote setup process for any products that come with the Harmony Hub. During setup, Harmony now automatically detects your Philips Hue lights, Roku, Sonos speakers and other devices on your network, making configuration easier.
Pricing and Availability
The free software update is expected to be available on June 9, 2014. For more information on the Logitech line of Harmony remote controls, and to set up your Sonos wireless speakers please visit www.myharmony.com or our blog.
