Your TV can become the master control center for all your home's smart devices.

The Logitech Harmony family of remotes is one of the many products that can serve as the main hub for your smart home. The Harmony app is now available for Android TV-powered televisions, and will allow you to control lights, speakers, the thermostat, and even the blinds. Assuming all your stuff is compatible.

The interface is sharp and focused, with the ability to customize various activities depending on what you want to do, like darkening the nights for a movie.
