You finally sit down on the couch after a long day and just when you are about to put on a movie, you realize you left the kitchen lights on. There is no need to get up from that comfortable spot. Just use SmartThings to control connected devices from your living room with your TV. With the SmartThings dashboard, you can monitor and control all of your SmartThings devices for a totally connected home

Note: The information provided applies to TVs sold in Canada. Available screens and settings may vary for TVs sold in other countries. SmartThings functionality is the same across all supported models and is available on most newer Samsung Smart TVs.

Before you can use or control all your smart devices, you have to set up the SmartThings app on your TV.

  1. First, make sure you have SmartThings downloaded on your phone and that you have added all your devices.

  3. Select Install and review any on-screen instructions to complete the process.

SmartThings is available on your phone and many other devices, but what if your phone's all the way across the room? No worries! You can use your TV.

  1. Press the Home button on your remote, and then navigate to and open SmartThings. If needed, sign into your Samsung account.

  3. Use your remote to select a device to check its status or perform an action.

  4. For example, you can turn connected lights on or off. You can even run scenes if you have them set up.

If you would like to check if your TV supports SmartThings, you can do so right from the SmartThings app.

  1. On your phone or tablet, navigate to and open the SmartThings app.

  2. Tap the Devices tab, and then tap Add (the plus sign). Tap Add device.
