You did it. You jumped into the 21st century with a TV that can do whatever you want, right?! You bought a smart TV, brought it home and felt so technologically advanced. You were all excited because you could access all your amazing apps and online goodness right from the comfort of your favorite sofa. Then you looked at the remote and suddenly you were like, ummm…how does this work? This isn’t the advanced experience you was hoping for. Which button does what?! Wait a minute, is this a trick? This wasn’t you, was it? It was me. Sorry. 🙂 But you probably had the same thing happen, because although the TV is super awesome, let’s face it, the remotes are not that fun.
Yep, that was me, frustrated with the TV, when I thought I was going to be in internet heaven. That is until Best Buy sent me the Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard. Suddenly, my eyes were opened, the sun appeared and big jars of glitter were delivered to my doorstep. Not, really but if I could put into words what an awesome feeling it was to have everything the way I wanted it to be, it would be that. It was like my SMART TV was BEGGING for this keyboard since I brought it home.
TELL US MICHELLE, WHY IS IT SO AH-MAY-ZING?!
The Harmony Smart Keyboard makes enjoying digital media in your living room easier than ever. Every day I figure out something new it can do. The specially designed keyboard simplifies text entry on internet-connected entertainment devices ( I love it for searching Apple TV). Touch the “Movie” Activity button and the right devices switch to the right settings. Plus, it has integrated DVR and set-top box controls, playback and volume buttons, and a touchpad for cursor control on a PC or Mac.
The Harmony Smart Keyboard delivers the full Harmony control experience for TV-connected Internet and home entertainment devices like the XBOX 360, Wii or PS3. It’s compatible with over 225,000 home theater devices so it’s pretty likely that it will work with the ones you have. Like the cherry on top of an already techni-licious sundae, the Harmony App turns iOS & Android smartphones into personal universal remote and so much more. You don’t even have to be in the same room as the hub to control it. I can see that feature being way more fun than my family will.
