Today Logitech announced the Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard, a keyboard and touchpad combination specially designed for controlling streaming media in your living room. This new keyboard simplifies text entry, so you can search for shows, navigate menus and browse the Web on a PC or Mac connected to your TV or Internet-connected media devices, such as Apple TV, Roku or Xbox One.
"Internet-connected and streaming-media devices seem to deliver limitless entertainment options, however their accompanying remotes struggle to keep up with the text entry needed to search for selections," said Chad Thompson, senior director of worldwide marketing and product management for Logitech's digital home business group. "Our goal with the Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard is to unite Logitech's expertise in both universal remotes and keyboards to provide a fast and simple way to search for and navigate through the vast content options available through the living room's entertainment devices."
The Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard can work with up to eight devices from a library of more than 225,000 home-entertainment devices and over 5,000 brands through the setup assistant. It includes the Harmony Hub, which turns signals from the keyboard or your smartphone - through the Harmony App - into commands your entertainment devices understand. Both the keyboard and the Harmony App work without pointing, so you don't have to worry about closed cabinets getting in the way of your signal.
With the keyboard in your living room, there is no need for multiple remotes. As with other Harmony remotes, one touch of an Activity button - such as "Watch a Movie" - turns on just the right entertainment devices and automatically switches each one to the right settings and inputs. Plus, the keyboard features an easy Internet-based setup, and integrated DVR and set-top box controls, and playback and volume buttons.
Pricing and Availability The Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard is expected to be available in the U.S. and Germany beginning in March 2014, for a suggested retail price of $149.99.
