Is it possible to use the SmartThings app to turn on a Samsung Series 7 TV?

We just purchased a Samsung 7 Series (50) TV and have installed the SmartThings apps on our iPhones. After setting everything up and confirming we can control the TV when it is turned on, I was wondering if it is possible to use the SmartThings app to turn the TV on when the TV Is off. When I navigate to the SmartThings home, all the controls are disabled and the message reads, “TV Power Off, You can only use this button when the TV is turned on” so I thought maybe it’s not possible.

I use webcore to turn on my Samsung TV’s by using Wake on LAN. Works fairly well but it would be a lot better if the app just had an ‘On’ button.

Is the power button in the ST app not working for you?

Just for reference my 6 series Uk tv works via amazon echo for on and off, dont really use either st app, too long winded opening app, waiting, finding room then device, echo now works great

I gave up on ST controlling my tv, so i stuck a chromecast into the tv and now tell google to turn tv on and off and it works really well, so I did the same for my other tv’s too. I have now set a routine in google home for good night, i.e. living room lights off, tv off and bed room lights on etc.

I have the exact same TV and use an iPhone also. When my TV is off I can’t turn it on either.
