Logitech Harmony Link turns iPads into smart IR remotes

Logitech unveils Harmony Link adapter for iPad

Logitech early Tuesday morning brought out the Harmony Link, an adapter focused on turning the iPad into a true multi-role remote. The puck-sized hub bridges a Wi-Fi link to infrared and, through an app, lets the iPad handle everything a Harmony remote could, including macro-based tasks like playing a movie or listening to a home stereo. Viewers also get a customized program guide through Rovi to help match the TV's own guide.

The app can mimic a full remote but also supports gestures for basic commands like volume. Multiple iPads will work as well. Android and iPhone users will have remote control as well, but they won't get the program guide.

Harmony Links start shipping to at least the US in October for $100. Both the iOS and Android apps will be available for free at roughly the same time.
