Find the best car for your family with


Car safety is one of the most important things when shopping for a car in my family. Since we became parents the whole car buying dynamic has changed dramatically, when we used to be driven by aesthetics now the main concern is how many air bags a car has and how many car seats and how to installed them. Crazy mom alert I know! BUT after hearing so many stories about children involved in car wrecks I promised myself I would become more vigilant about it. offers an array of installation tips for almost every single car!  Certified child passenger safety technicians conduct hands-on tests of a car’s Latch system and check the vehicle’s ability to accommodate different types of car seats.

Best Buy: Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard Review

Logitech Keyboard and app image.jpg

My husband is really into gadges and new technologies, he’s always in the know about all the latest techie goodness. Our home entertainment system is no exeption! He’s always on the lookout for products that will make the whole home theater experience better. Needless to say there’s many things going on on our entertainment center; LCD TV, DirecTV DVR, DVD Player, XBox, Playstation, Wii and a laptop are always hooked up.

Logitech Keyboard and app image.jpg

You are probably picturing the mess and the insane amount of controllers and remotes. However, I still need a different remote to handle controlling each of those things. And don’t get me started with the pain it can be to browse Netflix or Youtube!

So when I was given the opportunity to review Logitech’s Harmony Keyboard it was a no brainer! We were sooooooooo excited and couldn’t wait to give it a go!

The Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard lets you:

  • Control devices behind cabinet doors and walls
  • Control up to eight devices
  • Works with Apple TV, Roku and TiVo
  • Use your smartphone, with the Harmony smartphone app, to supplement keyboard controls with touch-screen gesture

The Harmony Smart Keyboard delivers the full Harmony control experience for TV-connected Internet and home entertainment devices. It comes with everything that you need to get up and running. In addition to the keyboard, the kit includes the Harmony hub which is the brain of the system. It also includes 2 USB receivers which can be used in your non-Bluetooth enabled devices like your computer or television. It also includes an IR blaster, USB extender, and USB cable.

All you do is set up the hub so you can use the harmony keyboard and your smartphone to control all of the devices hooked up to your system. Setup was really easy (I supervised my IT guy ;)). To pair your devices all you do is enter in the manufacturer name and model name/number, that easy! All devices just clicks away, no more having to deal with those silly universal remotes that need to be redone every time the batteries die.

Harmony Hub controls devices behind cabinets or walls

  • IR, RF, USB, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi
  • Simple smartphone setup
  • Harmony App turns iOS & Android smartphones into personal universal remote

My son is in love with the ability to easily type what he is looking for without issues. And if typing isn’t as exciting to you as it is to us the keyboard also has 3 keys where you can program activities. I set up the activities we use the most like Watch TV, Games and music. But the keyboard includes integrated DVR and set-top box controls, playback and volume buttons, and a touchpad for cursor control on a PC or Mac, and much more.

Right now through June 21 you can get the Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard exclusively at Best Buy. The cost is $149.99. But I promised it will change your life!
