I believe that companion has more programmed buttons on the remote and probably a newer version..

The companion has buttons to control smart lights....the smart does not.

I have a question I'm hoping someone can answer...

I see that the remote has 3 activities at the top (Music, TV, Videos). If I am correct, activities are a single button you can press that will trigger a series of signals to turn on/off the required devices and inputs so you can start a specific activity. But what if I want to program more than 3 activities? Can the 4 coloured buttons (red, green, yellow, blue) be programmed as activities thereby bringing the total amount of activities up to 7?

Thanks!

3 activities on the physical remote, 6 activities in the smartphone app.

“The app features the same activity-based buttons, although you can see all six activities in the smartphone interface.”

You can also configure a long press for those activity buttons. So short press for TV, turns on TV activity, while long press TV could turn on Video Game console activity.

The remote had 6 Activities - one short press and one long press for each button. In fact, each button on the remote can have a long/short press assignment (except for Off). You can only assign activities to the Activity Buttons, you cannot assign an activity to the coloured buttons. I assign the long press on the red/green to power toggle my TV and cable box in case they get out of sequence.

I think the app can have as many activities as you want - well I don't think you will run out of options.

Yes, if it is IR. Ten years ago, I used my Harmony 880 to control my fireplace.
