Is it possible to access and control a Samsung Smart TV from a different location? I have aging parents who are struggling to keep up with today's tech. I live 2 hours away from them and would like to help them with turning on and changing channels for them so they don't have to find the right remote or figure out what buttons to push in order to watch their favorite shows. Any suggestions? They have wifi in the home and a cable device. I would like to have something similar to MyQ just for their tv. If someone can point me in a direction I'd greatly appreciate it.

If you get them an xbox and an xbox remote you can remotely controll it or you can get an HDMI controller that has an IR blaster to controll the tv

Smart Things app. If the TV is linked you can controll it from any other device also linked to the account (if it's capable). SmartSelect_20240517_140808_Google Play Store_3523_1715976499.png
