It is also possible let your SpotCam work with Android/iOS location service when you back home or going away. SpotCam is integrated with Android/iOS location service via a popular platform called IFTTT (If This Then That). Here is step by step instruction on how you can enable IFTTT service for your SpotCam and then connect it with Android/iOS location service.

Enable IFTTT for your SpotCam with mobile/tablet
1. Register your IFTTT account here or sign in if you already have an IFTTT using your web browser.
2. Sign in to your SpotCam App and call out menu from top right button and then click “Connect with IFTTT”
