Use harmony hub emulator to trigger a samsung tv binding item


is there a way to trigger a samsung tv binding item (Power) over amazon echo using the harmony hub emulator?

I linked the emulator with the echo and i can see my self created items. But i have no clue how to trigger an item auto generated by an binding.


It works with the hue emulation.
You define with the [“Lighting”] in your Sitemap which Items should be detectable by Hue Emulation.

Then you enable Pairing Mode in Hue-Emulation.
Then you let Echo scan for Home Automation Devices (sometimes 2x)
Then Alexa finds your Items.
Then you disable Pairing Mode in Hue Emulation.

What model-year is your Samsung TV and have you tested that you can turn on your TV with a normal switch item?

Only reason I ask is that the older models do not allow you to turn the TV on as the ethernet port is powered down when the TV is in standby mode.


yes i can turn on my TV with the normal switch. I defined the hue emulation in the items file for my other items.
If i define it in the sitemap with [ “Switchable” ] the sitemap doesn´t even load in the browser.

Thanks for your help,

How should i define [“Lighting”] in the sitemap? I don´t get it. It doesn´t work :frowning: Every time i add [“Lighting”] in the sitemap definition the sitemap doesn´t load in the browser? Any ideas?


Tagging is done in .items file, not sitemap.

So this is wrong?
How can i then trigger an autogererated item? Should i delete it and create my own item?

Unfortunately, yes, that was a wrong answer. See

Device Tagging

To expose an item on the service, apply a supported tag (which are “Lighting”, “Switchable”, “TargetTemperature”) to it. The item label will be used as the Hue device name.

Switch  TestSwitch1     "Kitchen Switch" [ "Switchable" ]
Switch  TestSwitch2     "Bathroom" [ "Lighting" ]
Dimmer  TestDimmer3     "Hallway" [ "Lighting" ]
Number  TestNumber4     "Temperature Set Point" [ "TargetTemperature" ]

AFAIK, there is no possibility to do tagging through PaperUI, so I am afraid, Your need to manually define it in an .items file.
