Most smart devices nowadays come built-in with NFC capabilities, hence the increased popularity of programmable NFC tag. What these tags do is enable radio communication between devices either by touching them together or simply bringing them in close proximity to one another. This established communication allows for contactless transactions, ranging from data exchange to mobile payments, and the simplification of device set-ups, such as Wi-Fi communication features. There are plenty of ways to set-up and program your device’s NFC tag and below are some nifty tricks to help you do so:
First things first, you need an NFC-capable device, NFC tags, and an NFC writer. With these, you can do wonders with the many great features that your programmable NFC tag offers. With NFC, you can program your device so it can instantly add a WiFi network—no more scrambling for pen and paper to scribble down long, often-indecipherable WiFi passwords whenever guests are around. NFC tags eliminate this process by instantly allowing devices to connect to the available network.
Your NFC tag can likewise be programmed as digital business cards that carry all your contact information and other important details to help colleagues and potential business partners keep in touch. An NFC business card is a great way to stand out at trade shows and conferences as they can be customized to reflect your brand.
Programmable NFC tag devices are also great driving companions, as they can be programmed to make navigation, hands-free calling, and in-car music or entertainment set-up a breeze. Once programmed, you can simply stick your NFC tag onto your car dock and instantly get into a driving mode with the help of your mobile app. NFC tags can even be used to simplify computer boot up as well as automate many common tasks on your phone and other devices.
