Apple TV — Bluetooth control

At this time the API associated with Apple TV Bluetooth Control is not open for development. We will continue to look into supporting the Harmony Hub but we can not offer a time when this will be supported.

  • Hi! Good news, we have added integration of Apple TV via BLE to our latest release! Please feel free to report any feedback on this new integration here and thanks again for your patience!

  • Bluetooth control would be great. A few of my Apple TVs are in cabinets and there is not line of site for IR. A mic for Siri could control and search would be double awesome.

  • Will this addition then allow us to use Universal Search within Apple TV? I use Universal Search CONSTANTLY and it is something I think would be extremely beneficial.    

    • Hi  Chris Fourmont ,
      The upcoming Apple TV BLE integration will allow using the search with Smart Remote keyboard.
      I hope this helps!

  • Hi all,

    though the BLE integration is wonderful and works fine, there's one little drawback that keeps bothering me: whenever the remote goes into 'standby' (black screen) I observe on the display an appleTV message (keyboard disconnected) and bringing back the remote to life (eg touching its screen) yeilds another one (keyboard connected).

    Am I the only one facing this? Any workaround ?

    Thanx in anticipation !

    • Aymerik thanks a lot for sharing this. You are not the only one facing that as this is a limitation with Apple. Our team is working on getting this fix, we'll let you know as soon as an improvement on this part is live!

  • It would be nice NOT to see the ‘keyboard connected/disconnected’ pop-up on screen whenever the apple tv is selected in the remote

    • Egg Buoy View sure our team is working on solving this! We'll make sure to let you know as soon as we have an update!
