Elizabeth Frank13 Mar 2022

Your TV is one of the most important devices in your home. It’s where you watch your favorite shows, listen to your favorite music, and see your favorite movies. But how do you use the TV without turning into a couch potato? That’s why we’re here to help! In this guide, we’ll teach you how to use smart outlets to control your TV. Smart TVs come with a variety of different features that let you manage your entertainment with ease. By controlling your TV with smart outlets, you can save energy and get the most out of your entertainment.

Using Smart Outlets As A Remote Control

Smart outlets are all-new smart devices designed to work with your TV and provide you with a way to control your entertainment. These smart outlets can control several devices in addition to your TV. They can switch on and off lights, turn up the volume on your soundbar, or even turn off the heating inside of your home when you’re not using it! Smart outlets also let you control other electronic devices around your home. You can turn off lights from across the room or adjust the temperature from upstairs without having to open a door or call an electrician! With smart outlets, you can control all of these things without even leaving your couch. You can even use the app on your phone or the remote on the wall to control any type of electrical device that has a button.

How to Use Smart Outlets on Your TV?

Smart outlets are electronic devices that plug into your TV and provide you with a way to control all of the electronics in your home. These smart outlets can control hundreds of different devices in your home, as well as some simple entertainment features. By following this step-by-step guide, you'll be able to turn on lights, adjust the volume with your TV remote, turn off heating systems around the house, and even turn on/off your television when you're not home. This guide will also teach you how to use the smart outlets on your TV as a remote.

Step 1: You'll need to plug the smart outlet in using the power cord.

The first thing that you should do is plug the smart outlet into your TV's input socket to give your TV a new remote.

Step 2: Locate and program your smart devices!

This step is quite simple but will allow you to control any device with a button on it. If you don't have a device with buttons, then you can use another method of programming it (like an app on your phone or computer).

Step 3: Then it's on to the next step! Turn on your television and check out the lights.

This is where you'll actually program your smart outlet to work with your TV. First, go to your TV remote and press the input button that says "TV." You should see a screen pop up on your TV screen that says "Smart Outlet".

Step 4: Next, you need to select the device or devices that you want to control with this feature.

When you start programming, this is going to be a massive list, so make sure that you only select what devices are going to be accessed by this new remote. For example, there are many different product series with buttons built into them, like dishwashers, stoves, and microwaves. Make sure that only those devices are programmed into this control panel. If you choose too many devices (i.e., every product in their lineup), then they may not function properly (or at all). Go through each one and make sure to double-check before moving on. The process should be pretty self-explanatory, but I'll give you a quick rundown.

Step 5: Repeat this procedure for each device you want to control with this remote.

Now, at this point, your smart outlet should be programmed to work with your TV and your selected devices (presumably). You may now turn on that TV, turn on the desired device (in our case, the smart outlet), and press whatever buttons are desired to control that specific device. If it's working as intended and there were no issues while programming, you should see some lights come on or off in order to indicate that it's functioning.

Step 6: If things are going properly, it's time to test your new remote!

Go ahead and test out whatever device you want by pressing the "TV" button and going through each of the buttons one by one. For example, if you want to switch the smart outlet to turn on a specific device, press the TV and then the "Smart" button. Check it out! Every button should work!

The Benefits of Having Smart Outlets In Your Living Room

The benefits of having smart outlets in your living room are probably numerous! In no particular order, here's just a quick list of ideas: Many people have a media player or other device that they want to control from their couch. You no longer need to go into the TV or try to fool around with that device's remote controls when you have smart outlets right there in front of you. You can easily control whatever is connected to the TV, such as your cable box, DVR, Blu-ray player, etc. If you're worried about running down electrical power during an extended movie marathon on your TV, imagine how much power it will take to run those devices when you can easily cut off their power from the outlet. These are just two great examples of possible scenarios when having what we call "smart outlets" would save you money and simplify your life!


Smart outlets on your TV are great for anyone who wants to control their TV from the couch with no hassle whatsoever. With this type of media device, you can easily use your remote to change channels and enjoy the comforts of home theater without having to go through all the trouble of figuring out where those buttons are!
