Gear previously bundled with Harmony Ultimate, Harmony Smart Control

Logitech has introduced a standalone version of the Harmony Ultimate Hub, a peripheral previously bundled only with the company's Harmony Ultimate and Harmony Smart Control remotes. After downloading a special app, the unit lets iPhone/iPod and Android owners control up to eight home theater devices. Users can for example swipe to adjust volume, change a TV's channel by tapping on network icons, and control recorded video playback.

Control options extend to video services like Netflix hosted on game consoles, such as the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Logitech adds that the Hub is also compatible with the Harmony Touch; the remote's RF signals are translated into IR and Bluetooth format.

The standalone Ultimate Hub is set to go on sale in the US and Europe in August, at a cost of $100. The iOS and Android apps are already available.
