Pair and Unpair Logitech Unifying Devices

March 24th, 2012

Logitech has a wide range of hardware that also tends to be very popular.

So what happened if you have more than one wireless device or one wireless device that you want to connect to multiple other devices? (All Logitech’s)

One of its technology that helped with connecting its wireless devices is called the Unifying Technology.

Unifying Technology

Look for this special logo. Some mice that are wireless, but not with this logo:

For example, I have one of these m325.

It has a USB connector, when you plug into a laptop and turn on the mouse, it will just automatically get connected/paired.

The Logitech Revue™ With Google TV™ set-top box is special that it already has a connector built it, so you can pair it with other Logitech Unifying compatible device.

I could pair my mouse to my laptop, and then pair it with the Logitech Revue.

However, getting back to the laptop might be a problem after pairing with the Revue, even if you have unpaired it with the Revue.

Fret not, Logitech Unifying software will help to manage the pairing on computers by installing its management software.

To make things easy, here’s the video guide:

Lyrics
Give me a second I
I need to get my story straight
My friends are in the bathroom
getting higher than the Empire State
my lover she’s waiting for me
just across the bar
My seats been taken by some sunglasses
asking ’bout a scar
and I know I gave it to you months ago
I know you’re trying to forget
but between the drinks and subtle things
the holes in my apologies
you know I’m trying hard to take it back
so if by the time the bar closes
and you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home
Tonight
We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter
than the sun
Tonight
we are young
so let’s set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
than the sun

Now I know that I’m not
all that you got
I guess that I
I just thought maybe we could
find new ways to fall apart
But our friends are back
So let’s raise a toast
Cause I found someone to carry me home

Tonight
We are young
So let’s the set the world on fire
we can burn brighter than the sun
Tonight
We are young
so let’s set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
than the sun

Carry me home tonight
Just carry me home tonight
Carry me home tonight
Just carry me home tonight

The world is on my side
I have no reason to run
So will someone come and carry me home tonight

The angels never arrived
but I can hear the choir
so will someone come and
carry me home

Tonight
We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
than the sun
Tonight
We are young
so let’s set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
than the sun

So if by the time the bar closes
and you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home tonight
