Logitech Harmony 700 Remote Simplifies Home Entertainment

Logitech Harmony 700 Remote Simplifies Home Entertainment

 

Rechargeable Remote Features One-Click Control, Colour Screen

 

SYDNEY, Aust. - November 2nd 2009 - You and your family love to be entertained - enjoying TV, movies, games and music - in the comfort of your living room. But getting to your entertainment can be difficult, often requiring you use several remotes just to get to your favourite TV show. The Logitech Harmony® 700 remote, the newest universal remote from Logitech is now available in Australia and can help simplify your home entertainment by replacing up to six remotes. The Harmony 700 remote features a colour screen, rechargeable batteries and one-click control of your favourite activities.

 

"Millions of families around the world are investing in better home-entertainment systems, complete with flat-screen TVs and other devices; however, each new device adds another remote to the coffee table and another level of complexity to what should be an enjoyable experience," said Ashish Arora, vice president and general manager of Logitech's Harmony business unit. "If you have a half-dozen components and an AV receiver, the new Logitech Harmony 700 is the smartest way to get the most out of that setup."

 

One-Click Control

 

To get you to your entertainment faster, the Logitech Harmony 700 remote offers one-button control. Instead of a complex series of button presses, or complicated lists of what to turn on or which button to select, after completing the online setup you just select what you want to do - such as "Watch a DVD" - and your Logitech Harmony 700 remote does the rest.

 

Colour LCD Screen

 

The colour LCD screen gives you at-a-glance access to your entertainment options. For example, if you're watching TV, you can see icons for your favourite channels making it easy to jump to your favourite shows with one click - there's no need to enter or remember the channel number.

 

Always Charged and Ready

 

The Harmony 700 comes with rechargeable AA batteries that can go several weeks between charges. When it's time, just connect the remote to the power adaptor and plug it in to recharge. You won't have to hunt for fresh batteries when it's time for your favourite show.

 

Easy To Set Up

 

Setting up the Logitech Harmony 700 remote is a snap. You'll never need to punch a code into your remote. Instead you connect the Harmony 700 to your PC or Mac® computer, go to http://www.logitech.com/MyHarmony, and download the software. You'll then be prompted to enter the name of your component and the model number - the Logitech Harmony software does the rest. From Betamax to Blu-Ray - you can be sure the Logitech Harmony 700 remote can control virtually any IR home-electronic device. Our online database of more than 225,000 home entertainment devices grows every day. So, you can be sure your remote will work with what you own today and what you add tomorrow.

 

Pricing and Availability

 

The Logitech Harmony 700 remote will be available in Australia in early November for a suggested retail price of AUD $299.95 inc GST.
