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.
