From the manual...
Many of this year's TVs have come with ability to connect a wireless mouse or wireless keyboard. Below are instructions for how to find that area of the TVs menu to add them:
Menu > System > Device Manager
Using this function, you can set up a keyboard or mouse to use with the TV. You can view your device lists and adjust keyboard or mouse settings in this menu.
A natural question would come up is: what devices are compatible? There is no list, but there are some devices that may not be compatible.
Hope this helps!

bluetooth wireless keyboard for smart tv
thank you for the reply! a bit of clarification if possible: does the wireless keyboard have to be bluetooth? i want to be clear on what to buy, as i venture out today!! thanks again!
Re: bluetooth wireless keyboard for smart tv
Bluetooth only works if you have a TV with Bluetooth. The manual for that particular TV states that only Plasma TVs LED 6500 series and higher have Bluetooth. Also, I suspect that it also means this is only true for 2012 models, although I could be wrong.
So just get a normal wireless keyboard with a USB wireless dongle and try it. If it doesn't work, take it back.

re: BLUETOOTH on my new Samsung TV
Forgive my post as I am a newbie here!
Just bought un55h6350 and DOES NOT have Bluetooth! Should i upgrade to 6400 w/bluetooth for keyboards etc..?Any suggestions or input would be greatly appreciated!
Using a Non-Samsung bluetooth dongle
Has anyone tried to use a non-Samsung Bluetooth dongle to see if it would work to link up the Samsung TV Bluetooth keyboard to see if it would work? I am looking all over the web to find an answer if there are any Bluetooth dongles out there that would pair up with the Samsung Smart Wireless Keyboard.
I've seen that tried many times and all failed.
What does work are the non-bluetooth keyboard and dongles like the Logitech K400. HOWEVER expectations are often too high on the results. That is, some expected the YouTube app to use the keyboard. Long discussions about that so I'll pause here.
If you bought the TV and the keyboard in the same shop, they surely can sell you a dongle that works with the combination also. Did you ask?
Function not available Samsung UA55ES8000 NSW Australia
Hiya, we purchased our model in May 2012. I just followed your instructions (cheers). However, when I clicked the link: 'keyboard (none)', it came up with: 'function not available'. I then tried the next link below: 'bluetooth keyboard', it performed a search, but could not find anything. The same for my mouse. FYI, my wireless keyboard and mouse are from last years iMac 27 inch model if this helps....? However, our TV picked up our iPhone 4s with regards to the free Samsung App for TV remote control and likewise for free Telstra tBox App :).
Would you be able to provide any further advice please? Granted it is a TV. However, I find myself increasingly wanting to respond to work emails (narrowing that separation between work and leisure Regards.
Re: Function not available Samsung UA55ES8000 NSW Australia
I'd like to comment, but I have no more information than you do about Australian models because I support US products and customers. If you want Samsung help, here's the Samsung Australia portal for support: http://www.samsung.com/au/support/main/supportMain.do
I did a little searching myself, and I found that model is sold in New Zealand, not Australia. So it seems like that you'll have some complications that way.
But as I said above, Bluetooth only works if you have a TV with Bluetooth. Look in the manual for your TV, and see what it supports. I suspect that's going to be a case of try-and-see. So get a normal wireless keyboard with a USB wireless dongle and try it. If it doesn't work, take it back.
But we got a nice little community here that includes people from everywhere in the world, and they might have a few other suggestions to help you out.
Hope this helps you!

Cheers HD Tech for the feedback
Hiya, many thanks for your response. I'll try the link you provided. Interesting about our model sold in NSW Australia to us, but based upon your comment it appears to be down as a model for our much loved neighbours "across the ditch" (the other side of the Tasman Sea) New Zealand. Yes, I agree, its good to have forums with input from a wider global community. I made note of such, in another Samsung forum around cracks in screens (bit of a hot potatoe that one). As you may have guessed, this forum editor is trying to turn my Australian English typing/spelling into American English typing/spelling. Cheers from down-under.
I couldn't find "Device Manager" in Menu>System
Could you please tell me how to get to "Device Manager"
Also I seen a 2 video clips on YouTube. When those guys plugged in the usb connector for wireless keyboard they would have a flash screen that their TV detect a new device found. Mine won't even detect the new device. I don't know if I ever take options off my menu screen by accident or those options are no available for my TV model
Could you please give me some inputs? Thank for your help in advance!!!
