Connecting SmartThings to a Samsung TV

Last Update date : Nov 19. 2021

With so many smart appliances appearing in households, it’s hard to keep up with controlling them all. That’s where the SmartThings app comes into play. With the SmartThings app, you are able to choose from an extensive list of compatible appliances, giving you the ability to control them all with just one device.

Simply check whether your Samsung TV model is compatible by scrolling down a little on the SmartThings page, and select 'compatible devices'. Now let’s get started connecting the SmartThings app on your phone or tablet to your Samsung TV
