Notifications on Samsung TV

Hi there, was hoping to have a notify platform for Samsung TV so that I can receive certain alerts, etc when watching TV. Currently using the Samsung TV media player component and it works well.

TV model: UN55KU6300

Thanks, I appreciate the effort you guys put into everything HA-related!

Not sure if it works on your model, but there seems to be a python script that works with some Samsung tvs: samsung-messagebox

It doesn’t work for my tv though. In my setup I have a small speaker on my PI3 running HA, this lets me run TTS and sound alerts without interrupting anything else. Other than that I am using push notifications to my phone+smartwatch.

Thanks for that. Doesn’t work with my TV unfortunately. Tried connecting on all ports I was able to find online. No go.

samsung support currently uses samsungctl ( I’ve submitted a request for notification support that could then be added to HASS (

Much appreciated. Thanks!

any luck @armandom ? I have the same TV and hope to do the same.

@kylerw Any update on the notifications? I see that there is some code posted on the issue, but nothing beyond that.

There was a comment made 2 months ago with some working code asking for other testers. I have not had a chance to do so…

See here:

Edit: which you mentioned. lol - my bad. I have not seen anything further.

I can test it out. It doesn’t look like a HA component though.

yeah, it’s the package that the component is based on

So, how would I test it without modifying the package/component?

in the past I had run the samsungctl directly and was successful in testing. I can potential give it a go in the next week or so.

Looking forward to the updates. Let me know what/how you tested and I can also test it out on my end.

Any progress on this?
I’d love to be able to push notification like “washing machine finished” or “motion detected” etc. to the tv as a text alert.

Anybody found a way to push notifications to a Samsung Smart TV?

It would be really useful to have, notifications on the Samsung Smart TV, but it seems that even if there are many potential users, could be difficult to make it…

The request is listed also here, on
Possible to add notifications support?
