NFC stickers or tags are self-adhesive NFC-enabled products with small memory storage and antennas. They can transfer any data that is written in them or prompt actions as they are programmed to do. While most people use NFC stickers for Google Pay and Apple Pay, there are actually a lot of amazing things that you can do with them to automate your life!
One great advantage of NFC stickers is that they are programmable. Another advantage is that they can be embedded or placed at the back of a phone, on laptop, on paper, on a table, or on just about any surface. This is why NFC stickers open up plenty of doors of opportunities. You just really need to think creatively!
Here’s a compilation of cool things that you can do with your NFC stickers:
What are the first things you do when you get home? The list probably includes unlocking the front door, enabling the Wi-Fi, and turning on the lights. Did you know that you can save a lot of time by programming your NFC sticker to do all these on your behalf? Put the tag near your door and tap it before entering your house. With just a single tap, you can perform all these tasks.
In the car
You’ve spent so much time prepping for work. You don’t want to spend the next five minutes in your car launching Waze, enabling your mobile data, and selecting your music. If you have an NFC sticker, you can do all these in just one second; literally. Setup the tag to automatically launch the phone applications that you need.
If you have an NFC-enabled computer or laptop at work, then you will be able to make use of your NFC tags in the office, too. You can program your NFC tag to turn your computer on and off with just a swipe. You can also program it so that you won’t need to enter your password to log into your computer. It’s a great trick to keep your password a secret from others.
