Universal remote followup, hello Nevo
My May PMY column “Universal Aggravation” is now online, and I’m tickled with how Craig Wallace Dale realized our opening illustration idea. How’s that for action electronics photography! You may recall that testing the Harmony 890 won me over to Logitech’s online programming system, but there may be even better solutions out there. I’d heard that Atlantic Marine Electronics programmed a Harmony for every Viking Yacht launched (an impressive move on Viking’s part), but when I called them it turned that they are now using the NevoSL, which is partially touch screen and according to AME “more intuitive.” I also learned from my friend Kim Kavin’s excellent megayacht site, CharterWave, that at the very high end Crestron has a remote that can summon 24 hour cabin service, an idea Kim is not so sure about.
The Nevo doesn’t quite sound like a remote for everyone:
The set-up, programming, and ongoing support of NevoSL are provided by a trained professional installer who creates a customized solution to meet your needs.
