Samsung Smart TV


The samsungtv platform allows you to control a Samsung Smart TV.

When the TV is first connected, you will need to accept Home Assistant on the TV to allow communication.

To add a TV to your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
media_player:
  - platform: samsungtv
    host: 192.168.0.10

Configuration variables:

  • host (Required): The IP of the Samsung Smart TV, eg. 192.168.0.10.
  • port (Optional): The port of the Samsung Smart TV. Defaults to 55000. If set to 8001, the new websocket connection will be used (required for 2016+ TVs).
  • name (Optional): The name you would like to give to the Samsung Smart TV.
  • timeout (Optional): The time-out in seconds for the communication with the TV. Defaults to 0 (no timeout).
  • mac (Optional): The MAC address of the Samsung Smart TV, eg. 00:11:22:33:44:55:66. Required for power on support via wake on lan.

Currently tested but not working models:

  • JU7500 - Unable to see state and unable to control
  • JS9500 - State is always “on” and unable to control (but port 8001 is open)

If your model is not on the list then give it a test, if everything works correctly then add it to the list on GitHub. The first letter (U, P, L, H & K) represent the screen type, e.g. LED or Plasma. The second letter represents the region, E is Europe, N is North America and A is Asia & Australia. The two numbers following that represent the screen size. If you add your model remember to remove these before adding them to the list.

Currently the ability to select a source is not implemented.

There’s currently a known issue with some TVs receiving a Key press UP that can interrupt certain applications.
