Gesture control allows you to control the TV with hand motions. To use gesture control follow these steps:


● Gesture controls are not support by all Samsung TVs. Please refer your user manual to check availability of this feature.

● Gesture controls are not available all the time. Some Apps do not support gesture controls. If gesture controls are unavailable you will be required to use your TV remote.

1 Confirm that the gesture controls are enabled in the TV and that the camera is set for your viewing area.
2 Raise your hand and hold it up for about 2 seconds.
3 Wave at the TV.
