Turning on My TV using Alexa/Harmony

I need a solution for powering on my older TVs without having to use a remote. I have set up a Dot/Harmony net but need additional ir blaster that can convert the WiFi signals from the Harmony Hub into ir to turn on and channel change volume change and so on. The Hub will do it for the room it’s in, but want to have voice capability in other rooms as well. Product suggestions? Other work arounds? Thanks

Re: Turning on My TV using Alexa/Harmony

Hello Vtach,


Thanks for joining our forum community to seek our insight! I’d be happy to see if I can point you in the correct direction.


Plugging your TV into a WeMo Smart Plug should allow you to turn it on using your Dot/Harmony network you currently have implemented. There may be way to set up a IR blaster, however, that would be dependent on a of variety factors. Have you looked into getting an In-Home Consultation? An advisor would be able to walk through your current set-up make recommendations on improving it, and achieving the control you’re looking to have.
