Connect a Smart TV in the SmartThings app

Smart TV displaying SmartThings app

You can control your Smart TV the same way you can control SmartThings devices. Yes, that’s right - when you connect it to the SmartThings app, you'll be able to turn on the TV, change channels, adjust the volume, and much more right from your phone.

Connect the Smart TV

Connect your TV to the SmartThings app to control it remotely.

First, turn on the Smart TV you want to connect. Then, on your phone, open the SmartThings app. Tap Add (the plus icon), and then tap Device. Under By device type, tap TV, and then tap Samsung. Tap Start, select a location and room, and then tap Next. The next step will vary, depending on the model of your Smart TV:

  • 2017 or later models: Input the PIN shown on the TV screen into the phone, and tap Done.

  • 2016 models: Use the buttons on the TV or remote to select Allow.

Tap Done once the connection is complete.
