Logitech ships Harmony Ultimate Hub in August for $100, remote not required

To date, home theater mavens who’ve wanted Logitech’s Harmony Ultimate Hub have had to buy it as part of a Harmony Ultimate or Harmony Smart Control bundle — neither kit being a bargain for viewers with existing gear. They’ll have a better option soon, as Logitech now expects to ship its promised stand-alone version of the Ultimate Hub to Europe and the US in August. Those who shell out $100 will have the same IR, RF and WiFi support as the bundled hub, just without the redundant hardware. They can even rely solely on Logitech’s free Android or iOS apps for input, should a dedicated remote seem archaic. The Ultimate Hub may be well-timed: when alternative remote control bridges are fading away, Logitech may snag some of those customers looking for a replacement.
