The Samsung Smart TV driver for HSYCO allows you to control most recent Smart TV models from HSYCO web interfaces and application logic.

The driver can send most of the remote control commands, and a few extra commands not present on the remote, but can’t turn on a TV. The driver is basically one-way, it sends commands but doesn’t have any information of the current state of the TV, it only knows if the TV is on and can accept commands from HSYCO.

When you initially configure the Smart TV I/O server in HSYCO and the server restarts, you should have your TV on. The TV will then show a message asking to accept connections from HSYCO.

We can’t provide a list of Samsung Smart TV models that work with this driver. In general, models released between 2012 and 2014 should work. We do not guarantee that this driver will work with any specific model and firmware version.
