Soooo ive read a few bits and bats, but not found any real solutions or plans or solutions around this topic . . .
My samsung smart tvs are both able to show marquee style popups at the top of the screen on command from samsung (so over the net) for example: if they plan to discontinue an app or service i get a marquee popup telling me so a few days before and then i can click for more info or leave it to go off 10 seconds later
Is it planned to /or/ can it already be done somehow… That smarthings has permission (im sure they trust you enough now seen as There your new parents haha) to send these kind of notifcations to the tv, surely a quick generic app from the tvs app store could add these functionalities to any samsung smart tv . . .
For instance " if doorbell rings " put up a pop up style marquee on any tv that is turned on, telling you the door bell has rang and then gives you the option to pause the tv or mute or not etc
Or with hub v2s new feature, it pushes a PIP(picture in picture - top right corner usually) of your camera on the front door to the tv and the notification etc (like fibaro does)
The tv app could even double up as a massive dashboard or even add a widget to the tvs smarthub to show the homes status orrrr even better to activate actions based on whether your watching netflix or digital tv or paused etc etc (example: if tv pauses then raise lights slightly if it is after 6pm) etc
Surely this is easier now than ever and would add some great other use cases that even I’ve not considered
