    Elite has "everything you could need in a universal remote" – LOL!  Everything but low-level programming, ability to intermix Activities and Device controls, device control punch-through, ability to program or learn Bluetooth, a stable configuration app….

    What about the ultimate? You can get one on amazon for £80 (inc the hub) and other than the different UI has all the features of the elite. The only problem is the awkward play pause buttons

    I will agree, this remote is awesome. I owned the harmony one and upgraded to this model a few months ago. With Alexa (IFTTT) integration, that was the selling point for me. Also, being able control wifi and bluetooth devices definitely makes it a worthy update over to the Harmony One.
