Here cya go. I recently replaced the batteries in both of mine wth theseOh shit. The battery in one of mine is dying. It looks like I'll have to find a shop that can replace it. This really sucks. I guess that leaves Universal and those are a pain to set up.
I followed your lead and just bought a backup from amazoid; it wasn't my "Harmony One" but it'll work with what I have (I don't have IoT lights, curtains, garage door openers or refrigerators).Yesterday I bought a Harmony 665 prompted by this official news. Seems like Best Buy is about the only reputable place that has them new anymore at regular price.
I used to use URC remotes back in the day and found them to be both harder to set up and less reliable. I wish I'd know they were going to do this. I would have bought a few more remotes. Oh well. I have one for each of my system and they should last a long time if I can get batteries.Yeah, this sucks
There isn’t really anyone selling comparable remotes that someone like me can setup. As @Haywood mentioned the URC stuff is intentionally complex to setup and make changes to.
Ive been having intermittent issues with my Harmony Hub and Companion so I’m not sure what to do now.
True, but Logitech had nailed down the perfect universal remote for those who weren't using a pro level custom install system. It was easy to set up by the end user and the software generally was simple to use to keep things updated as components were changed (there was a period where they couldn't make up their minds as to whether they wanted to use a standalone app or a web-based interface).^ for the consumer that is probably true, but there are plenty of powerful remotes that do some pretty amazing macros. Way more than ANY Harmony could ever hope to....The problem is, for all practical purposes, you need the equivalent of a 2year college degree to know how to work in depth with the software. For example, the guy that programmed my URC controller which is app based, took a picture of the Shakespeare bust I used to open the Batcave entrance he took two pics of the bust (one closed and one opened) and created a small animated button that was the actual bust to open the secret door with the app. That is the tip of the iceberg with what a programmer that knows what’s he’s doing with the professional grade stuff.
