About this app

iTags can be found at very cheap prices on internet.
The official App "iTracing" allows to use iTags as "connected ibeacons".

iTag Alarm allows to use your iTag as "magic button" to take pictures or selfies, to send alarms, location to any of your contacts.

iTag Alarm is fully integrated with "If This Then That". With your "magic button" and the "Maker Channel" you can can trigger any "Action Channel" you want

iTag Alarm is fully integrated with "Automate for Android". With your "magic button" launch any flowchart,

iTag Alarm allows you to trigger "web actions" : https links and MQTT integration. Use this for home automation

Use as many iTags everywhere without limitations, each one can trigger its own alarms !

iTag is a Bluetooth Low Energy device. When used with "iTag Alarm" it will draw almost no current, just a little when alarm is activated. So the battery should last very very long...

Pro Version of this App will work totally in the background, with very very low impact on your smartphone precious battery. It will as well remove ads.

Try the App, it's free and could help you to protect your family :
- give an iTag to older people to give them a way to call you in emergency conditions
- give a iTag to your children they can send you alarms with their location with a single click
- put an iTag in the dining room and press it when diner is ready !
- use an iTag to send a "Yo" to your friends
- send your location to friends during your trip or before a meeting
- with IFTTT automate your home and use buttons to make actions such as :
- if iTag On then launch music
- if iTag On then open googleMap and go home (or other address)
- if iTag On then send a mail with choosen content
- if iTag On then switch On cooler, Hue bulb,
- if iTag On then open garage door
- with Automate use buttons to create your automations with flowcharts :
- if iTag On then launch music
- if iTag On then open googleMap and go home (or other address)
- if iTag On then send a mail with choosen content
- if iTag On then switch On cooler, Hue bulb,
- if iTag On then open garage door
- take pictures with your phone as soon as you switch your iTag On, even when the screen is off or when the screen is locked (Pro version)
- and many more that you will invent ...

See here for an examples of "limitless possibilities" :

ITag Alarm + IFTTT + jeedom = home automation : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jqToa4_sEU

iTag Alarm + web Action = Halloween magic Candel : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVPlcz_0l4Q

PLEASE : I have been reported that a very few number of itags do not work with my App (today 0,1%). Before leaving a negative comment, try first your tag with the "iTracing App". If it works then it must work as well with my App. If not it won't work neither ...
Also do NOT pair your iTag with your Phone it is NOT needed.
And don't hesitate to leave 5 stars rating. Thank you

I know reading can be hard sometimes, but if you try just a little you may find this app super useful. The app supercharges what are pretty crappy pieces of hardware, giving a lot of functionality. You basically make a 3 dollar token do anything you want with IFTTT. If you're trying to get gps tracking from a Bluetooth beacon, you're gonna have a bad time.

[Update: 21/1/2019]: I have now added a few more TAGs which I have placed around work to do location tracking using your app to trigger a URL which updates my location. Obviously at work there are many dozens of Bluetooth devices which appear with blank names (despite that some of them have visible identification names using other bluetooth sniffing apps. These devices can't be used as triggers in your app since they appear with a different blank name each time they are lost and then recaptured). The result is that the app stopped responding quite a few times. I clear the cache and restated - and it is, sort of functioning. I tried to show a few people your app - but, unfortunately each time it was running so slowly that it didn't work. So, that is a problem. Also, the program does not seem to work in the background - despite having given it the permissions to do so. If I open the app then it triggers the URL when the tag is in sight, but not otherwise.

Great app but not perfect; iTags usually lose connection for short time and this app notifies those "false alarms". It would be great if it could be configured by the user to notify only when disconnection happens for X seconds. IFTTT, Automate , UDP and MQTT bring great flexibility to automate other things for your own; it would be better if this app wouldn't notify short disconnections. Definitely this app shows it's good enough to pay for the pro version (I tested a few minutes and bought pro)

Thank you. You are right disconnections are a real issue. The apps does include a mechanism to skip small disconnections... If I increase more the time out I am afraid that the response time will not be acceptable...
