A DVD collection can represent a sizable investment, both financially and emotionally, in our favorite content. That content deserves to look its very best on any type of screen.

Harmony 688 Universal Remote

All in all, the Harmony 688 is a fantastic remote. It's simple enough my family uses it, yet it's powerful enough that I can set it up exactly how I want it.

The Relay 8 offers a quick and easy way for the home automation enthusiast to have relay control using conventional and easily available X-10 power line commands.
