Weekends are always filled with something to do but most of us prefer to rest lazily on couch and watch some movie or hear favorite songs, using remote controllers for the respective devices. These remote controllers save both time and effort and therefore add to our comfort.

What if your living room has different digital devices with different remote controls? Definitely, it will turn your living room into a store house, having you to make inputs from them on separate and concerned receivers. Don’t worry this too has been made a lot easier with Logitech’s latest offering, Logitech Harmony 650.

It is a remote controller that has been designed with sole purpose to make entertainment simple. The remote supports 5000+ brands and replaces up to 5 other remotes.

It has a simple accelerometer that pops on the lights when you pick it up. Package contents include a quick start guide, two AA batteries and a micro ‘B’ USB cable. The cable helps you to connect the remote controller to a computer to update the remote settings, using software that must be downloaded from Harmony’s website.
