Logitech Harmony 1000

The previously revealed Harmony 785 remote from Logitech is already a premier control for complex home theater arrangements; an announcement by the company, however, adds a significant new level of control to the universal remote line. The new flagship Harmony 1000 now includes support for the Z-Wave home electronics standard, allowing control of supported appliances such as lighting systems. Logitech has also introduced an enhanced user interface. In place of the rows of fixed buttons, the Harmony 1000 is dominated by a 3.5-inch touchscreen that gives context-sensitive controls and can display the state of one device while the user controls another. Updates to the existing catalog of 175,000 supported devices are handled by synchronizing the remote with a MacOS X 10.3 or Windows 2000/XP computer via USB. Logitech says its new design will ship later in the fall for $500; a Wireless Extender adds range to the main base station for an additional $150. A full photo is available after the jump.
