Smart State Technology
The Harmony 1100 uses Smart State Technology to deliver activity-based control. This technology allows the remote to control your home theater as a whole. It knows which devices need to be turned on and which inputs the devices need to be set to. Using Smart State Technology, the Harmony 1100 switches from watching a DVD to listening to music on the stereo with the touch of a button.
One-Touch Activity Control
The Activities screen is your starting point on the Harmony 1100. From this screen, you can select which activity you want to start. When you select an activity, the remote sends a series of commands to your entertainment system to turn on the necessary devices and configure them for the selected activity
When you're in an activity, the remote's screen displays all the commands you need for that activity. For example, if you're watching TV, your screen displays functions and commands for your set-top box and your AV receiver.
You can set up your favorite channels on your Harmony 1100 so that you have quick access to the channels you watch the most. Each channel can have its own custom icon to make it easier
to recognize. Just press the button and the remote will change to the desired channel for you. To access this feature, press the Heart Icon from your Watch TV start screen.
The Devices screen lists all of the devices in your entertainment system. You can access the Devices screen by pressing the Settings icon (wrench) from your main Activity page, or if you are in an activity, by pressing the Custom Control icon. From there, press the Devices button.
You can customize these buttons to send other commands you use on a regular basis. To access your custom buttons, press the Custom Control icon (star).
The status indicator flashes whenever an IR command is being sent from your Harmony 1100.
There's a battery indicator that shows the battery level or charging status, and a clock for displaying the current time.
Guided On-line Setup
When you use the Harmony Remote Software for the first time, you must create a user account. It then provides a step-by-step guide that tailors the device to match your home entertainment components. When you start the Harmony Remote Software, it automatically checks for updates and downloads them if necessary.
The Harmony 1100 allows you to rename activities, add custom labels, change how buttons work and even add a slideshow to the screen.
If your Harmony 1100 becomes "out of sync" with your devices, the Help feature guides you through a series of questions to help you fix the problem and bring your devices back "in sync" with your remote.
RF Wireless Compatibility
When you pair the Harmony 1100 with the optional RF Wireless Extender, you can control up to eight components that are out of sight, for example, in a cabinet or in another room.
