I’ve been reading all sorts of topics on setting up my “smart apartment”. I have had Phillips bulbs for several months now which work great with IFTTT, and I just bought an Echo which should arrive soon-ish.
I get confused though when y’all refer to “Harmony”; I really want to start off with light bulbs and being able to tell Echo to turn my TV on (and, after some configuration I gather, Netflix) but I can’t tell which device of Logitech’s you’re referring to. I’m also admittedly mildly confused as to whether it’s assumed every device (like a TV, sound system, etc) being referred to is plugged in via a smart plug of some kind?
On the one hand, I understand how I’d be getting the devices to talk to each other via software/wifi/etc but on the other, I don’t totally get what physical devices I’ll eventually need and I find the fact that a bunch of this brand talks with a bunch of that, and therefore not everything is needed. Could you please point me in the right direction?
