How Harmony upgrades work

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

Harmony Ultimate Hub may be paired with up to three additional components: Harmony Ultimate One (or Harmony Touch), Harmony Smart Control Add-on, or Harmony Smart Keyboard Add-on. Only one of each component type can be paired to a single hub.

Important Note

Harmony Home products currently do not support additional upgrade combinations. Upgrades to Ultimate One (or Touch) require Ultimate Hub, not Home Hub.

  2. From the remote gallery, select the Add remote button.
