My end goal is for the TV to work with Google Home.

Since its a Samsung smart TV from 2016 I first have to setup it up with SmartThings. Unfortunately, the new ST app doesn't have any option for the KS9000 model; but I'd read that the classic ST (older version) used to be able to integrate with it.

How do I get my TV setup for SmartThings?

I heard that Classic ST is completely shut down, so I haven't tried installing the older apk.

    See community.smartthings.com/t/… If that doesn't work for you, that forum maybe a good one to ask this question on. Commented Jun 4, 2021 at 19:18

    TV to work with Google Home ... how do you want it to work? ... have you considered an external device such as a Raspberry Pi or a micro PC?

  • @jsotola I'm just experimenting with available 'smart' electronics to get them talking to each other - using Pi / VM image to setup Home Assistant may be a better solution, but I only want to wire any existing devices that should be working together for now.

1 Answer 1


After I posted this question, at some point I checked the SmartThings app and something in my previous attempts must've worked as I can now see the TV and control it from within ST.

I plan to remove it and try Scan Nearby Devices option (suggested by kalyanswaroop) to verify this is how to add it; will update answer once I do so.
