Samsung TV capabilities: samsungvd.ambient

I see numerous capabilities on Samsung TVs such as samsungvd.ambient, samsungvd.remoteControl, samsungvd.ambientContent, and samsungvd.mediaInputSource. Literally 0 hits on Google for them. Meanwhile, the production capabilities “samsungTV” listed in the documentation seem non-existent. Does anyone have information or pointers as to the commands available for these capabilities?

The ST CLI or the ST Advanced Web App will show you all the commands that are exposed for the presentation for that device. Here is a partial list of the commands available for my TV from the AWA.


Hello @cyphers Welcome to SmartThings Community

@h0ckeysk8er is right, in this case, if you want to see more information about these capabilities you can use the SmartThings CLI with the next command

smartthings capabilities capability_name


smartthings capabilities samsungvd.ambient -j 
    "id": "samsungvd.ambient",
    "version": 1,
    "status": "proposed",
    "name": "Ambient",
    "ephemeral": false,
    "attributes": {},
    "commands": {
        "setAmbientOn": {
            "name": "setAmbientOn",
            "arguments": []

or another option is to use SmartThings API :raised_hands:
