It’s the end of the line for one of Logitech’s most neglected product lines in present-day technology.
Logitech, known for its reliable, state of the art and budget-friendly accessories and gadgets for the household, announced last Friday that they are discontinuing the Logitech Harmony remotes line. After years of speculation that the devices are bound to end at their last stock, Logitech finally confirms that indeed, the Harmony line has reached its end of the sales and will never see the light of day again.
Models currently in stock at numerous retailers will remain available for purchase while supplies last, and Logitech adds that they will continue to provide support and customer service for the Harmony remote as long as customers are still actively using it.
According to a blog post on Logitech’s review page, the company will no longer manufacture Harmony remains but will continue to be available through different retailers as long as supply lasts. Which was continued by, Logitech not expecting anything else from their customers by the announcement as they will also continue to support the Logitech Harmony community and its new customers, by including access to software and apps, and will also continue to update the device and add more devices to the Harmony database.
Moreover, Logitech assures its customers that customer and warranty services will still be offered.
More Details On The Harmony Product Line
Back in 2004, the Harmony remote’s original production was Intrigue Technologies, which Logitech was able to acquire the line successfully. Harmony remotes were famous among consumers looking for a household gadget that could control almost every device in the household.
From cable boxes, gaming consoles, streaming devices, and more. The said device is placed under the branch of smart home devices, and newer models can still be used for other types of gadgets in the future.
What’s Next For Logitech?
Logitech may have stopped one line of its products, but that didn’t stop Logitech’s business to go booming. Last January, the company reported that its sales were up to 85% year over year, equivalent to almost $1.67 billion during the coronavirus pandemic as people had to do work from home and the school from home.
With the continuous rise of streaming services over the previous year, it seems that there is no room any longer for the Logitech Harmony remotes that could compete with other latest technology in today’s times.
Logitech CEO Bracken Darell was interviewed back in 2019 about the Harmony product line. He referred to the remotes as only a small business with only about 6% of the average sales done by Logitech’s gaming accessories such as keyboards, mouse and more.
He thinks that people become less interested in getting the Logitech Harmony remotes over time and that the company remains grateful to those who have appreciated customers who stay loyal to the Harmony line.
Darell finally states that they’ll always be on the lookout for Harmony users in need of service because as a brand, it’s their responsibility to take care of their products and the satisfaction of their consumers.
Logitech might have ended the manufacturing of their universal remotes, but that doesn’t mean it’s the end for their other products such as gaming accessories.
