    Logitech Harmony Smart Control

    Best value with a hub

    This older hub-based clicker offers all the RF functionality and smartphone control of the more-expensive, newer Home Control, and if you can get over its annoying button arrangement (and don't need Smart Home functions) it's a great value.

  • Logitech Harmony Elite

    Best high-end remote

    Most people won't want to pay extra for the built-in touchscreen, backlit keys and extra device capacity, but if you can afford it, the superb Elite is the best Harmony remote we've ever tested.

    Logitech Harmony 650

    Best value without a hub

    We think it's worth paying extra for Harmony's hub-based remotes above, mainly because they never miss sending a command and don't need line-of-sight. But if aiming a "standard" infrared remote is fine with you, this older clicker is a great choice.
