Set up SmartThings on your Smart TV
You're watching a movie and just when it gets to the good part, you realize you left the kitchen lights on. There's no need to interrupt the entertainment. Use SmartThings to control connected devices from your living room with your TV. With the SmartThings dashboard, monitor and control all of your SmartThings devices for a totally connected home.
Note: The SmartThings functionality is the same across all supported models and is available on most Samsung Smart TVs.
Set up SmartThings
Before you can use or control all your smart devices, you have to set up the SmartThings app on your TV.
First, make sure you have SmartThings downloaded on your phone and that you've added all your devices. If SmartThings is not already installed on your TV, select APPS, and then search for it using the search bar. Select Install and review the on-screen instructions.
Use SmartThings on the TV
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.
From the Home screen, use your TV remote to navigate to and open SmartThings. If needed, sign into your Samsung account.
Now you can view, monitor, and control your SmartThings devices. Select a device to check its status or perform an action. For example, you can turn connected lights on or off. You can even run scenes if you have them set up.
Check for supported TV models
If you’d like to check if your TV supports SmartThings, you can do so right from the SmartThings app.
On your phone or tablet, navigate to and open the SmartThings app.
Tap Add (the plus icon), and then tap Device.
Tap the By brand tab, and then tap Samsung.
Tap TV, and then tap Supported devices. Swipe through the list of TVs to find your model. If it’s there, just tap it, and the connection process will begin.
