Note: The process of sharing your screen with a projector differs depending on the make and model of both your projector and device.

To use the Tap View feature, you will need to make sure the latest app version of SmartThings is installed on your phone and that you are signed in to your account. You will also need to turn on the Tap View feature in the SmartThings app.

Step 4. Upon connection for the first time, select Allow on a pop-up window of the projector to start screen mirroring. Once successful your phone screen will be displayed through the projector.

 If you’d like to stop mirroring, disconnect your phone by pressing Disconnect on the phone's screen.
