Logitech Unifying software lets you manage your devices that use a Unifying receiver. You can add or remove devices using the software’s wizard or use advanced mode. Advanced mode also displays the status of your paired devices, battery level, and firmware version
Logitech Unifying Receiver
The Logitech Unifying receiver is an extremely small dedicated USB wireless receiver, based on the nRF24L-family of RF devices, that allows up to six compatible Logitech human interface devices (such as mice, trackballs, trackpads, and keyboards; headphones are not compatible) to be linked to the same computer using 2.4 GHz band radio communication. Receivers that are bundled with a Logitech product are paired with the device at the factory. When purchasing a replacement receiver or connecting multiple devices to one receiver, pairing requires the freely available Logitech Unifying software. Devices pair to Unifying Receivers similar to Bluetooth pairing although the underlying protocols are incompatible.
Each device can pair to one receiver per profile. While most devices only have one profile, newer products such as the Logitech MX Master, MX Anywhere series, and M720 Triathalon, allow multiple profiles. These devices can be connected to multiple receivers simultaneously. This allows the use of different receivers in several computers (e.g., with a desktop and a laptop computer) by simply changing profiles on the mouse. This multi-computer function is further augmented by Logitech Flow (software KVM solution) which is similar to Synergy. For other devices, the receiver and input devices can be moved together from one computer to another maintaining their paired status after being unplugged.
Some (older) Unifying devices limit the number of allowable pairing changes to a maximum of 45 times. Once the 45th connection is made, it is no longer possible to connect such a device to a further, different receiver. For users who often switch a Unifying device between multiple PCs or laptops with individual receivers, this connection limit can become an issue. For example, a user who frequently switches a mouse between two receivers (e.g. at work and home) will quickly exhaust the limit of available pairing switches. Newer devices can switch pairings an unlimited number of times.
