Logitech Harmony 900 universal remote with RF for out-of-site components

Logitech have unveiled their latest universal remote, the Harmony 900, an RF unit that – with the three bundled IR blasters – can control devices in other rooms or enclosed in cabinets.  The Harmony 900 remote has a full-color touchcreen as well as numerous backlit hardware buttons, and can be set up via an online wizard; Logitech claim battery life of up to a week.

Logitech bundle the Harmony 900 with three IR blasters: two "mini blasters" and a main unit that has the RF receiver.  These can be spread among the shelves of your AV rack and control multiple components, as opposed to traditional IR emitters that must be adhered to the IR receiver of a device.

Up to fifteen remotes can be supplanted by one Harmony 900, and the remote comes with a docking station for easy recharging.  The Logitech Harmony 900 is available to preorder now, priced at $399.99.
