Can Harmony Hub Control Wi-Fi devices?

Answered by Stephen Mosley

The Harmony Hub is capable of controlling Wi-Fi devices. This is one of the key features of the Harmony Hub that sets it apart from other universal remote controls. By connecting to your home Wi-Fi network, the Harmony Hub can communicate with and control various Wi-Fi enabled devices.

One of the main advantages of controlling Wi-Fi devices with the Harmony Hub is the convenience it offers. With Wi-Fi control, you can control your devices from anywhere in your home, without the need for line-of-sight communication. This means you can control devices in different rooms or even from a different floor of your house. For example, if you have a Wi-Fi enabled smart TV in your living room and a Harmony Hub in your bedroom, you can easily control the TV without having to be in the same room.

The Harmony Hub can control a wide range of Wi-Fi devices, including smart TVs, streaming media players, game consoles, smart home devices, and more. It supports popular brands such as Samsung, LG, Sony, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox, PlayStation, and many others. This allows you to consolidate control of all your Wi-Fi devices into a single remote control or smartphone app, providing a seamless and integrated user experience.

To set up Wi-Fi control with the Harmony Hub, you will need to use the Harmony mobile app or the Harmony desktop software. The app will guide you through the process of adding your Wi-Fi devices by searching for them on your home network and automatically configuring the necessary settings. Once added, you can customize the control options for each device, create activities to control multiple devices simultaneously, and even set up automated actions based on triggers or schedules.

In my personal experience, I have found the Wi-Fi control feature of the Harmony Hub to be extremely convenient. I have a smart TV in my living room and a Harmony Hub in my bedroom. With the Harmony app installed on my smartphone, I can easily control the TV from my bed without having to get up. I can change channels, adjust the volume, and even launch streaming apps directly from my phone. It’s a great way to enhance the comfort and convenience of my entertainment setup.

The Harmony Hub’s ability to control Wi-Fi devices makes it a versatile and powerful universal remote control solution. Whether you have a single Wi-Fi device or a whole ecosystem of interconnected smart devices, the Harmony Hub can streamline your control experience and make it easier than ever to manage your entertainment and smart home devices.
