Very good remote

Excerpt: The remote is great if you don't want to worry about line-of-sight issues with remote to devices. All devices can be in a cabinet. This is probably THE best feature. The position of the hub is in my cabinet and the IR is near the TV. The IR is very small so no issues. The Harmony Smart Control has replaced all my remotes (and I had many). The remote number buttons are a bit small but there are many so that is the positive.
Excerpt: That remote is excellent. I was able to place all my devices in a cabinet, along with the Harmony controller, and run the included extender outside the cabinet to control the TV. Works like a charm. I was surprised to see the Android and iPad apps have all the "buttons" that exist on the original equipment remote, even my surround sound receiver.
Pros: Attractive Design, Fast Setup, Simple Controls
Excerpt: Just purchased a new media center with wood doors and needed an RF remote. Decided on the Smart Control. Setup was fast and easy. I'm not sure why some people have trouble setting it up. I completed it in minutes. Set up 3 activities: watch TV, watch DVD and watch apple TV. I didn't pair with a smart phone. The supplied remote works perfectly. I had a Harmony 550 and this works much better. Couldn't be happier.
Summary: I love this remote! I had another Harmony remote but that one got a little glitchy. I bought this one as recommended by a friend and I am happy I did. It was super easy to program and has been working beautifully. And I called Crutchfield about a question I had (I love the free tech support) and they were very helpful. Buy this remote!!!
Summary: Previous Universal Remotes (URs) that I have used work by sending multiple signals (IR or other) from the remote to control multiple pieces of equipment . You know, if you have used these, what can happen - - some of the commands work and some don't. You then have to deal with out of sync components, and tiresome remote processes (Is your TV on?, Is your Receiver on? Is you DVD player on? Is you receiver set to the DVD?, and so on).
Pros: Works very reliably once set up and positioned properly. Can be controlled by any number of smart phones / Tablets
Cons: Needs a robust wireless network environment , an a familiarity with how these work . Some trial and error is needed to get the equipment positioned (a one time effort)
Summary: What a great way to family proof my home theater, easy to setup and total acceptance from the boss (wife). Works great with my Yamaha receiver, Yamaha Blu-ray, PS3, Tivo Roamio and Epson 5030UB. No more wife aggro!
Pros: Ease of setup, couldn't be easier. I think my wife could have done it!
Excerpt: Very easy to set up if you prepare properly and gather your component info beforehand. Activity and button functions were relatively easy to modify. Suggestions from the forums helped with a workaround for a known issue.
