Maybe you always forget where you parked your car. Or, maybe you worry about an elderly relative. If that's the case, you should set up your SmartThings Tracker. Once you add it to the SmartThings app, you can keep tabs on everything and everyone right from your phone. You can also reset or delete the Tracker at any time.

Add your Tracker

To keep track of people or items, your SmartThings Tracker uses advanced technology. But don't worry, connecting the Tracker to your SmartThings account is simple.

Navigate to and open the SmartThings app. Tap Add (the plus sign), and then tap Device. Under By device type, tap Tracker, and then tap Samsung. Tap Start, choose a location and room, and then tap Next. Press and hold the Tracker's button to turn it on, and then wait for the lights to blink red-green-blue. Press the button again when the light turns blue. Then, tap Done.

Once it's connected, you can create a custom automationusing the Tracker and set locations.

Navigate to and open the SmartThings app. Tap Menu (the three horizontal lines), and then tap All devices. Tap More options (the three vertical dots), and then tap Edit. Tap the Tracker you wish to remove, and then tap Delete device. Tap Delete to confirm.
