We recently reviewed the Logitech Harmony Home Control system that combines AV system control with the ability to control smart-home products like Wi-Fi-based lights, thermostats, and shades. Now that same capability will be available in a wider array of Harmony products.

It used to be that if you thar Logitechwanted a Logitech Harmony remote that controlled your home theater setup and also controlled your home, your choices were extremely limited. Now, thanks to a software upgrade, any hub-based model will offer smart-home features as part of the company's Harmony Home Hub.

Logitech announced today that a software update would be coming to the Logitech Harmony Ultimate, Logitech Harmony Smart Control, and the Logitech Harmony smart keyboard, allowing all of these models to offer the same functionality as its Harmony Home Hub.
