Hi everyone. Here is a quick update for users of our legacy Logitech Harmony Remote Software. This software supports our older remotes such as the Harmony One, 880, 900 and 1100.
We are actively beta testing the 64-bit version for macOS 10.15 Catalina and are providing it to forum users and those who wish to try it. Our testing indicates that the update should work without issue for most users, however a couple of issues may arise:
- Software does not detect Harmony 1100 remotes. We’ve seen this occur only a small percentage of the time.
- System crash during install. We’ve seen this only a couple of times. Each time the software works fine after a restart.
With the holidays approaching fast we know many people are buying new devices to control with their remote and/or new Mac computers on which they want to run the Harmony software. We want to share this new software in its current state for those who have asked for it. For the time being, the download will only available here.
**This software will only work on macOS 10.15 Catalina**
If you have any questions or issues, feel free to post them in this thread.
When installing Logitech Harmony Remote Software on macOS 10.15 Catalina, you may be prompted with a couple of messages asking for your permission to allow the Logitech Harmony software to work with your computer.
Logitech Harmony Remote Software for macOS 10.15+ requires a system software extension from “Logitech Inc.” to be enabled. If this is not enabled, the Harmony software will not be able to connect and communicate with your Harmony remote.
Logitech Harmony Remote Software may stall detecting your remote while setting up your account, or when you are trying to update your remote. This driver is required for the Harmony 900, 1000, and 1100 remotes.
To enable this extension:
- Go to your System Preferences by clicking the apple on the top left of your screen.
- Click on Security and Privacy
- Click on the General tab
- On the bottom, click on the authentication lock icon to make changes. Enter your password when prompted.
- You will see a message stating “System software from developer “Logitech Inc. ” was blocked from loading.” Click on Allow.
- If your Mac recommends rebooting your computer, please do so.
Installing and using Logitech Harmony Remote Software for macOS 10.15 will prompt a Keystroke Receiving message from your mac. It will ask for you to grant access for our application.
It is not necessary to grant access. Harmony Remote Software uses the JavaFX engine, and one of the features of the engine is to receive keystrokes. We do not use this particular feature of the engine.
