Yes, you can add a non-Galaxy TV to your SmartThings routine. SmartThings supports a wide range of compatible devices, including various brands of smart TVs. Here's a general guide on how to add a non-Galaxy TV to your SmartThings routine:

  1. Ensure Compatibility: Check if your non-Galaxy TV is compatible with SmartThings. You can refer to the official SmartThings website or app for a list of supported devices or search for your specific TV model in the device compatibility list.

  2. Set up SmartThings: Make sure you have the SmartThings app installed on your mobile device and set up your SmartThings account if you haven't already. Follow the app's instructions to complete the initial setup process.

  3. Add the TV to SmartThings: Open the SmartThings app and tap the "+" or "Add Device" button to start adding a new device. Select "TVs" or the relevant category that corresponds to your TV.

  4. Follow the Prompts: The app will guide you through the process of adding your non-Galaxy TV to SmartThings. This typically involves putting your TV into pairing or discovery mode and connecting it to your SmartThings network.

  5. Complete the Setup: Once the TV is successfully added to SmartThings, you can customize its settings and control it through the SmartThings app. You can also include the TV in your routines by creating or modifying existing routines to incorporate TV actions.

  6. Create a Routine: Open the SmartThings app and go to the "Automation" or "Routines" section. Create a new routine or edit an existing one. In the routine settings, you can add actions specific to your TV, such as turning it on or off, adjusting volume, or changing input sources. Customize the routine according to your preferences.

  7. Execute the Routine: When you're ready to use the routine, you can activate it manually through the SmartThings app or set up triggers to automate its execution based on certain conditions or events.

Please note that the specific steps and options within the SmartThings app may vary depending on the version of the app and the device you are using.
