About this app

This plugin lets you control your Logitech Harmony Hub from Tasker.

Simple and easy to use, this app uses a stable, tested, reliable Harmony library:

:: Supports multiple hubs.
:: Can configure device delay.
:: Start activities.
:: Send device commands.
:: Power off.

== IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT BATTERY OPTIMIZATION ==

If you are running Android 6+ you might find that this plugin fails to send commands after a period of time.

This may be due to App Standby mode or Doze mode kicking in.

In order to fix this issue, go to:

Settings
| Battery
| Battery Optimisation (from the dropdown menu)
| Choose "All Apps"
| Find this plugin
| Select "Not Optimized"

I *should* add the correct permissions to this plugin to white list itself from the battery optimization list.

However, numerous developers have complained that Google simply removed their apps from the Play Store after adding this permission. It actually happened to Tasker at one point!

For that reason, I leave it to you to manually add this to your device settings if you have the issue mentioned above.

This app is currently broken but nothing to do with the developer or the code. Logitech cut off the local API access due to "security risks". If you revert your Hub firmware, you might be able to get it to work. I can't, but you may be able to. You also have to cut off internet access from the Hub so Logitech can't update it again. Many coders and Tasker users are fuming right now because their home setups are entirely broken. Please don't take it out on this developer.

Doesn't work. Failed to connect to hub once and never was able to get it to retry. Every time I tried again it failed instantly but said it timed out after 5 seconds. I can only assume it caches the failure to connect which makes absolutely no sense. Based on other reviews this seems very flaky

Just plain AWESOME! I can't even express how excited I was to see this app, then I downloaded it and tried to set up with out enabling the extra setting needed in the Harmony app for the hub to connect and I was almost sick with disappoinment.., but only for less than a minute untill I learned what I had to do and now everything works great and my life is exponentially greater with this app in it! Can I give 6 stars instead of 5?
