Good news for owners of the Logitech Harmony Link. Not too long ago, we found out that support for the device was coming to an end. Due to an expiring security certificate, the company announced the home theater remote control device wouldn’t work anymore after March 2018. Now, Logitech is offering a free upgrade to the Link’s successor, the Harmony Hub.
Why Support is Stopping for the Logitech Harmony Link
The encryption certificate used by the Logitech Harmony Link expires in the spring of 2018. Logitech, citing knowledge of a “potential/future vulnerability,” made the business decision to just end the support and services for the Harmony Link upon the certificate’s expiration.
Understand, this device hasn’t been sold in quite some time. In fact, Logitech last offered the Harmony Link for sale in the fall of 2015. The company’s service monitoring shows a small, but active, user base for the device.
How to Get Your Harmony Hub
Logitech has plans to reach out to all of its Harmony Link customers between now and March 2018 to make arrangements to replace the device with a free Harmony Hub. The Logitech Harmony Hub is similar to the Link, in that it’s an app-based remote control with many common features. In addition, the Harmony Hub works with many smart home devices and voice assistants.
