How Harmony upgrades work

All upgrade combinations require a Harmony hub. The hub is the center of Harmony home entertainment control and works to keep your devices and other Harmony components in sync. There should only be one hub in your Harmony setup.

Harmony Hub accepts one remote of each type:

Do I need another hub to add another device?

No, two hubs cannot be paired with each other.

I want to add a hub. Do I have to use the desktop software?

Yes, adding a hub to an existing remote-only setup requires the MyHarmony desktop software.

I have two touch screen remotes, can I pair them both?

No. Attempting to add another touch screen remote will replace the original remote. A touch screen remote must be paired with a non-touch screen remote and vice versa.

After I have paired both remotes, can I separate them later on?

No. It is not possible to downgrade or separate your remotes once they have been bundled together.
