Logitech Harmony Smart Home Hub – Antitrust Class Action
Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith LLP (CSK&D) is investigating a potential class action related to reports that Logitech’s Harmony Smart Home Hub’s recent firmware update cut off local access for users of the smart home system. The update released within the last week for the device was purportedly released to address security and bug fixes. However, owners of the device reported that parts of the system they created to connected to their smart home devices became unresponsive after downloading the latest firmware update. In effect, this prevents owners of the Smart Home Hub from controlling things like smart TVs, sound systems, or Home Assistant APIs, which are connected via the Harmony Hub.
In the Company’s most recent update, a Logitech representative has confirmed that local access has been intentionally removed in an effort to improve the Hub’s security, and that the interface used by the device was never designed to be used by third party devices.
