Posted in Remotes by Darrin Olson on May 20th, 2014

This device plugs into the 3.5mm jack on your smartphone and has an associated app that lets you use your handset as a IR blaster to control your TV, Blu-ray and other components.

Logitech Harmony 890Imagine a world in which you control all your home entertainment and advanced lighting systems using only one remote. Such a world could be yours with the Logitech Harmony 890 Advanced Universal Remote. The Harmony 890 allows you to wirelessly control your home entertainment system without direct line-of-sight to the components.

The Harmony 890 uses both radio frequency (RF) and infrared (IR) wireless signals to control the parts of your home-entertainment system that may be hidden behind walls or cabinet doors. The 890 breaks the line-of-site barrier by sending RF commands to a wireless A/V bridge receiver. The receiver serves as a bridge by converting RF signals to IR commands, and then broadcasts infrared signals to the components allowing you to achieve true wireless bliss.
