Reliable Location Tracking using BLE + Ability to use button on bluetooth tracker to control HASS

Hey guys, after trying tons of different network device trackers (nmap, tp-link, custom arp-scan) and also trying the Bluetooth and Bluetooth-le components, I couldn’t get a reliable way to track whether I was home or away without any false triggers. Thus I set on the journey to build my own python program that could help me with this. While working on this, I came across the cheap i-tag bluetooth trackers, and have managed to mod my script to be able to use the button on the bluetooth tracker to control hass. You can check out the script over here.


thanks for sharing.
