Samsung has now introduced full IP control models including Power On support as part of their 2016 models. Models prior to 2016 did not support Power On via network control. For more information on if your model supports full IP control please consult the Device Compatibility. For such models that do not support full IP control we recommend the use of a Simple Blaster for IR or Serial control.
If your Samsung TV is EX-Link enabled, you may control it via serial via the use of a Simple Blaster and the Simple Cable Serial 3.5mm as well as a Female to 3.5mm serial cable. This method is the most full-featured choice.
For Samsung TV’s that are not EX-Link enabled, or simply require Power On/Off commands, we recommend the use of IR control via a Simple Blaster.
