Support Remote Buddy FAQ Hardware - Harmony® Hub

Which Harmony commands need to be assigned to the respective buttons on the Harmony® remote so that I can use all buttons with Remote Buddy?

The table that follows lists the commands the Harmony software assigns to the respective buttons by default - and how these need to be changed for Remote Buddy. For Remote Buddy, the commands for short and long button presses should always be identical.

Good to know:

  • Not all Harmony® remotes supported by Harmony® Hubs have all of the buttons listed below.
  • The Home Control buttons on f.ex. the Harmony® Companion can't be used to control Remote Buddy due to limitations of the Harmony® software.

Button Harmony Default: Short Harmony Default: Long Adapted for Remote Buddy: short & long
