Does your home contain a small arsenal of devices? With the Samsung TV AllShare Control app, you can not only reduce the number of remotes you need but also take greater control, and not just for your home entertainment system. Discover how your Galaxy devices can simplify your daily life.
Streamline your Life with the AllShare Control App
Consolidating your remote devices is now a reality using either your Galaxy smartphone or Galaxy Tab; and it isn’t just for your television either. Thanks to the AllShare Control app, you can control your Samsung TV, Samsung Air Conditioners and PC easily when connected to the same wireless router.
Before you get started, be sure to check if this app will work with your particular Samsung products. All of Samsung’s 2013 TV models are compatible with the AllShare Control app, while PCs with Windows OS and select air conditioning units are also compatible. For a complete list, please check the app's Android Market detail page.
Simple Set-up Makes it Easy to Get Connected
Best of all, you don't need a degree in computer science to get started. Here are the basic steps you need to set up the Samsung AllShare Control app.
1. To begin, go to "Setup" on your Samsung TV's Menu and look for "Wireless Remote Control". (If you don't see this menu option, then it is likely that your TV is not compatible with this remote function.)
2. Then, simply connect your TV's LAN port to your wireless router using a standard Cat-5 cable. Or instead of using a wireless router, another option is to connect the Samsung Wireless LAN Adapter to your TV's USB port.
3. Finally, make sure your phone line is connected to the wireless router.
That's all there is to it. Now you're ready to sit back, relax and enjoy the show.
