In a press release around yesterday’s update Signify writes: “The Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box now also reacts to common infrared TV remotes or the Logitech Harmony universal remote control”. Especially regarding the Harmony integration I have received countless questions in the past hours. Therefore, I want to create a little guide today.
The LivingColors Iris is a great smart product and often available at a low price. In this article I’ve already explained how to integrate the lamp into Hue. However, the included remote control loses its functionality when doing so. To prevent the remote control from becoming completely useless, you can train it again.
