How to use Tracmo tracker to automatically & manually control my smart home devices?

Tracmo tracker is integrated with Amazon Alexa and IFTTT. With IFTTT you can automatically control your smart devices like Philips Hue and LIFX by using a Tracmo tracker as your arrival/away sensor, motion sensor, or you can manually control your smart devices by pressing the Tracmo tracker button.


To use your Tracmo tracker as your arrival/away sensor, after setting up your smart home devices on the Tracmo tracker app, you need to leave your Tracmo tracker at home and take your phone with you when you're going out. The arrival sensor works when you're entering your home and your phone got connected back to the Tracmo tracker that you left at home. On the other hand, the away sensor works when you're leaving your home and your phone got disconnected from the Tracmo tracker that you left at home.

To use your Tracmo tracker as your smart button or motion sensor, you need to keep your Tracmo tracker connected to your phone or Tracmo Station.
