So I just found out the other day that Samsung TVs are now able to be added as “Things”. I thought this was neat and strange at the same time. Apparently this is a fairly new integration. I haven’t seen a lot of people talking about it, and I can’t find much about the actual usages of the integration on this forum.
I added mine just yesterday and see that it gives me on/off, volume control, some display settings, and sound settings.
I was thinking about what I could automate and the only useful things seem to be that I could trigger lighting based on the TV state (on/off) and I can potentially control on/off and volume with my voice (Alexa/Google Home).
Is there anything else this is useful for that I’m missing? Is there any way I could broadcast messages to my TV screen? Say if a connected doorbell rings or a package arrives?
