    You don't add it as a node, it would be a controller. Go to Controller Management and under Actions choose Send Network Information to another Controller. The Harmony would have to be set to Join Existing Network.

    I have not done this with a Harmony, but it is the way other controllers are added.

      I finally got it to pair, but I had to buy the HomeSeer SmartStick+. Apparently the Z-Stick S2 doesn't work with adding the hub extender. I also noticed all of my devices seem to be responding faster now. There are a few that would occasionally stop responding. So it was worth the $40 to get it.

        I have several Home Control Remotes (with hubs) around the house and I like to control lights from the remotes. The way I do it is using the free java software found here.

        https://github.com/bwssytems/ha-bridge/releases

        I run it on the same device that runs HS3. It mimics a HUE HUB but allows you to control any device that can except http commands like every device in homeseer.

        You pair your harmony remote to the bridge as a "hue" device (as if you really had a hue light). When you press the light buttons on the remote it sends the light on command threw the network to the java program (hue hub emulator) and then the java app sends an http command to HS3 for on/off/dim or what ever you have setup.

        Seach can find more info on this.

          I'm currently using this with Vera, and starting to rebuild on Homeseer (Will see how it goes).
          So you're running ha-bridge on the same machine.
          I'm using a Linux VM for Homeseer and another for ha-bridge. I'd rather combine both.
          Are you running homelier on port 80? and what port are you using for ha-bridge?
          Also, how did you integrate with homeseer? Building custom JSON queries or using MQTT?

          Thanks!

            I run a windows machine, both homeseer and the bridge on one.

            I don't use much of anything on stock ports. Neither Homeseer or the Bridge are on port 80 in my install right now.

            I don't have Google Home (I do have some amazon echo's) and don't need to be on port 80 with the bridge.

            I use JSON. Http commands can be found at the link below. Make sure to turn on allow json control in the HS3 settings.

              Hello

              Just wanted to say that I'm using the same method integlikewhoa is using , I have HA Bridge running on the same machine and I have a perfect Harmony - HS3 setup

              I even programmed the home control buttons in Harmony to run events in HS3 not just devices or lights
