Some time back our family purchased a smart TV for our home. We really love the TV, but one complaint that we have is when we go to search for a program on our Netflix or Hulu Plus accounts, it is very time consuming and annoying to have to scroll through each letter and click “OK” on each one to type in the name of what we are searching for in the search menu. Logitech had the solution for us with the Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard.
Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard Available Exclusively At Best Buy
The Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard looks just like a regular wireless keyboard for your computer, but it can be used like a TV remote with some simple set up procedures. We no longer need the remote that came with our smart TV to search for programming. We can now type it in using the Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard, and it has drastically reduced the amount of time it takes to search for a program on our smart TV! I’m talking from between 45 seconds to a minute to enter a name to less than 10 seconds, it is that much difference.
A very cool thing about this smart keyboard is that it has a “Movie” Activity button which will change your devices to the right settings with just a touch. The Logitech Harmoney Smart Keyboard also has integrated DVR and set-top box controls, playback and volume buttons, and a touch pad for cursor control on a PC or Mac. It really has everything that you need to enhance your media experience.
I never thought that I would even consider such an item for our smart TV, but it has become a real time saver at our home. With just a few minutes of familiarizing myself with the keys on the keyboard and what they control, I was up and running, and I use the Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard more than I do the regular TV remote now.
