Samsung SmartThings Tracker finds items nationwide

With SmartThings Tracker, a small, lightweight GPS tracking device connected through an LTE-M[1] network, it’s easier to locate a gym bag or backpack lost at school, a laptop case left in the airport lounge, or a pet that might have wandered too far from home.



With SmartThings Tracker, items can be easily tracked in real time through Samsung’s Android and iOS compatible SmartThings app[2].



Family members can also use SmartThings Tracker to stay connected by sending a location notification to the SmartThings app that alerts the rest of the family of their whereabouts. And, since it is SmartThings-enabled, SmartThings Tracker can be used as an arrival sensor, triggering automations like a connected porch light turning on when the device is within range.


SmartThings Tracker Features

  • Track in more places with LTE-M – LTE-M network technology provides a greater range of signal coverage than Bluetooth, allowing for better tracking accuracy when a SmartThings Tracker is indoors or below street level. Now, people can track and send location updates from more places.[3]
  • Real-time location updates – Family members can share location updates by simply pushing the SmartThings Tracker’s power button twice which sends a notification to the SmartThings app. The alert can only be seen by users with shared access. They can also check on an item’s whereabouts by using the Live Tracking feature in the SmartThings app to get minute-by-minute location tracking for up to 10 minutes.
  • Use the SmartThings app for more than tracking – When a geo-fenced zone is set up in the app, SmartThings users will get an alert when a tracker enters or exits a zone, such as a pet leaving the backyard. The SmartThings Tracker can also act as a proximity sensor to trigger smart home automations, like lights turning on when someone gets close to home or the thermostat turning down when the car pulls out of the driveway. It is compatible with hundreds of Works With SmartThings devices, including smart lights, thermostats, security cameras and more.
  • Designed for rain or shine – Ideal for both indoor and outdoor use, the SmartThings Tracker is designed for durability, with an IP68 water-resistance rating. The battery can also last up to a week on a single charge[4], depending on usage.
