New Harmony app lets Sony Android TV control the smart home

28 Apr 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

Logitech has released its “Harmony for TV” app, which lets your Sony TV control connected devices in your home. You can set up scenarios to make devices turn on or off with your TV.

When TV meets the home

This is the app that we reported on after we saw it demonstrated at CES in Las Vegas. Logitech has now released the app in beta. However, even though it is an Android TV app it works exclusively with Sony Android TV.

As mentioned last time, Logitech imagines that you will want to control or automate specific processes from your TV, not necessarily control the entire home. As an example you can make the TV turn on the soundbar, dim the lights, and lower the blinds once you press the Movie button. You can customize almost everything.

- ”This app has been customized for Sony’s Android TV. For even faster control, add your Harmony Activities to the Discover UI, making them directly accessible through the Discover button on your Sony remote control,” said Logitech with reference to the Discover pop-up menu on Sony’s TVs.

See the video below for a demonstration.



In the video you see a 2016 Sony Android TV, a Sony soundbar, Philips Hue, and Hunter Douglas blinds. Logitech currently support more than 270,000 devices, including Nest thermostats, and new products are added to the list constantly.

The app can be accessed directly from your 2015 or 2016 Sony Android TV or from the Google Play store . To get started to need to own a Harmony Hub or a Harmony remote with the Harmony Hub. You can learn more at myharmony.com.
