SMote.TV is a smart Universal Infrared Television Remote for all all Plasma, LCD and LED TV manufactured by Samsung - without any pre-configuration or additional hardware required! Supports Android 5.1 (Lollipop) and 6.0.1 (Marshmallow), minimum required is Android 4.4 (KitKat)!
Look and feel is a perfect mix between a real television remote and a modern android app with a special focus on ergonomy. It's a powerful universal infrared blaster that covers a big set of your Plasma, LED or LCD TV's basic and special functions - 69 unique Buttons, many which other apps often cannot provide. Some functions even can't be found on your original remote, for example you can access your video input sources directly!
In order to work properly, your smartphone or smartwatch MUST have an inbuilt infrared-blaster! You cannot use SMote.TV if your device isn't IR-ready, it will definitely not work without infrared port / sensor!
You can only control TVs made by Samsung with this app, other manufacturers will NOT work!

HOW TO USE
It's simple: POINT your smartphone DIRECTLY TOWARDS your TV and press a button - just like you would do with your old plastic TV remote. Dont't cover the IR sender diode on top of your smartphone while pressing buttons.
The working range is about 3-5 meters. With low battery your inbuilt IR-blaster might not work properly or loose some range (especially < 5% battery), but SMote.TV itself is very powersaving, it won't drain your battery in any way.
