How 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:

  • One touchscreen remote (Elite, 950, Ultimate, Ultimate Home, Touch, Ultimate One)
  • One screen-less remote (Companion remote, Home control remote, Smart Control remote)
  • One Harmony keyboard (Smart Keyboard)
