Popular computer peripherals and software maker Logitech has decided to step away from its business of selling Harmony universal remotes. A company representative confirmed the news in a post made yesterday on Logitech’s official support site, which noted that these devices would no longer be manufactured going forward. Logitech will, however, continue to support existing Harmony universal remotes and maintain their database and software. Logitech CEO Bracken Darrell hinted that he’d be killing off his company’s Harmony business back in 2019 by suggesting that universal remotes were no longer relevant in the modern world of streaming devices.

We expect no impact to our customers by this announcement. We plan to support our Harmony community and new Harmony customers, which includes access to our software and apps to set up and manage your remotes. We also plan to continue to update the platform and add devices to our Harmony database. Customer and warranty support will continue to be offered.
