Logitech Harmony Universal Remote ControlsOn Monday Logitech announced some new upgrades and integration with its universal remotes, bringing control over your Sonos speakers and integrating some new on demand media including Amazon’s new Fire TV.

With the upgrades, users of the Harmony Ultimate and Harmony Smart Control on their smartphones will be able to control the volume, playback and favorite access for their Sonos speakers directly from the remote control or smartphone app. With the Smart Control app (only), users will also be able to use the keyboard or voice command to search for content through streaming media devices including Amazon’s Fire TV, Apple TV and Roku.

The team has also added some ease to the installation of a new universal remote with some automatic detection of your Sonos speakers, Roku devices and even Phillips Hue lights. The Harmony Ultimate runs $349.99 and the Harmony Ultimate Hub that connects to your smart device goes for $99.99, both available now.
