Samsung SyncThru Printer


The Samsung SyncThru Printer platform allows you to read current data from your local Samsung printer.

It usually provides information about the device’s state, the left amount of ink or toner and the state of paper trays.

The following information is displayed in separate sensors, if it is available:

  • Black, cyan, magenta and yellow toner fill level
  • Black, cyan, magenta and yellow drum state
  • First to fifth paper input tray state
  • First to sixth paper output tray state

Configuration

Adding Samsung SyncThru Printer to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by taking the following steps:

  • Browse to your Home Assistant instance.
  • In the sidebar click on Configuration.
  • From the configuration menu select: Integrations.

Samsung SyncThru Printer can be auto-discovered by Home Assistant. If an instance was found, it will be shown in the top of the list of integrations as “Discovered”. If that is the case click on the Configure button to start setting up the discovered instance.

If there wasn’t any discovered automatically, don’t worry! You can set up a manual integration entry:

  • In the bottom right, click on the Add Integration button.
  • From the list, search and select “Samsung SyncThru Printer”.
  • Follow the instruction on screen to complete the set up.

After completing, the Samsung SyncThru Printer integration will be immediately available for use.
