First, thanks for making the SmartThings tracker product! I have two. The first one was added in the app thru the Favorite link which already had a “SmartThings Tracker” in the app in my wife’s account on her iPhone. During the installation process, it asked us about what was the device going to be tracking. It works like a charm.
Then we tried adding the second SmartThings Tracker by going through Add a device. It doesn’t ask me about what was the device going to be tracking. It never shows the green light nor red-green-blue lights flashing as the manual says. We cannot add the second device in the app. Then I added the app on my iPhone with her account. Same issue. Then I tried adding the second device on my iPhone using my Samsung account, same issue.
How do I proceed and get the second SmartThings Tracker added to either iphone/account? PLEASE HELP!
I’m not sure how to help, but you should be aware the SmartThings Tracker is unfortunately end of life. The AT&T model will stop the end of October.
Thanks for the comments. I learned somewhere that pressing the power button 5 times could reset. Tried that and failed still. Hoping to get more leads.
BTW, isn’t it that Samsung will stop supporting the device at the end of October. The devices that Samsung sold all over the world would likely not stop working I guess. Isn’t that right? How could they suddenly stop working devices? Would they do that to their customers? Makes no business sense, right?
They most certainly can and they definitely are in the case of the AT&T model SmartThings Tracker
