How do I add my TV to the SmartThings app?

The SmartThings app allows you to connect, automate and manage all your Samsung and SmartThings-compatible appliances in a single easy-to-use app.  

Please note:

  • Each device needs to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network
  • All devices should be registered through a single Samsung Account 
1 Turn on the TV you wish to register
2 Open the SmartThingsapp. Your app will automatically detect any new or unregistered devices on the same Wi-Fi network.

You can also tap Add a deviceto look for devices.
3 Tap Add nowwhen your TV appears.

5 Select the location of the TV and tap NEXT. It may take a few minutes to connect.
6 The next step will vary depending on the model of your TV.

On 2016 models, you will see a pop up message asking you to allow the connection. Use your remote to select Allow
7 You should now see a message on the app confirming that the connection is complete. Tap Done


Ensure that your smartphone and your TV are both connected to the same Wi-Fi network, and signed into the same Samsung account.


If the TV has already been registered (under a previous owner's app for example), you will get the message 'Someone else has already registered this device'. When this pops up, tap RESET and try to register it again.
