Become an NFC enabled cyborg with our range of NFC compliant implants and upgrades. These offer interactions with any NFC enabled phone or even computers.
When it comes down to using your implants there are a near infinite amount of ways they can be used in a day to day life.
We’ve a dedicated section on our Youtube channel showing some of the top ways which you can check out bellow.
1. Smart Business Cards nfc tag
To me, this one is just crazy. If you don’t carry business cards you can instead use an NFC tag to share all of your business information such as your contact info, company website, etc. It’s the future of business, and the future is now.
2. An Alarm Clock That Actually Works
You can also set NFC tags to wake you up in the morning. Simply stick your tag in your bathroom (or wherever your first stop is in the morning), and your alarm will only be disabled when it connects with the tag. This will force you to wake up in the morning. It may seem horrific, but it is a great (and futuristic!) necessary evil. For this you will need the Alarm clock to have NFC technology unless you use your smartphone’s alarm feature.
3. Turn On Your Phone’s Hotspot
This one is easy and awesome. I personally use my phone’s hotspot a lot, as I seem to constantly be travelling these days. With an NFC tag, users could simply stick one to their tablet or laptop, and when you are on-the-go, simply tap your phone to the tag and it will automatically fire up the phone’s hotspot capability. Talk about easy.
4. Smart Directions
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could step into your car and your phone would automatically load up Google Maps? Well, guess what? NFC tags can do that. Simply stick an NFC tag in your car and encode it to load your Google Maps. Once you are in the car, tap and have the Maps load in seconds… well, if the internet connection is bad, it could be minutes.
5. Organize Your Notes/Life
Evernote is a great thing. No one is denying that. But, wouldn’t it be nice if you could organize your notes a little better or have faster access to specific ones? Well, with a little app called Tapmynote, you can! You can link a specific Evernote to the tag, and when your phone connects with said tag it will automatically launch that shopping to-do list. Great for to-do lists!
6. Share Your WiFi With Friends
Tired of remembering your WiFi password? Are you even more tired of people asking for it? Yeah, so is everyone else. That’s why you can store your Wi-Fi password on your NFC tag, and simply connecting an NFC-capable device to it will automatically connect to your Wi-Fi. That alone should be every reason you need to buy NFC tags.
7. Advertise Your Business
Place an NFC tag on any flyer or poster promoting your business, and when people scan it they can get a Google Maps layout of your locations, and even directions. This will save your potential customers time and effort, which is really the biggest reason people don’t try new places. Once again, it’s the future of business. Of course, you need to buy a lot of NFC tags for this.
8. Turn On Your PC
A Reddit user has developed a stellar way to set up NFC tags to turn on your PC. The user talks about certain apps that you will need to get your laptop or PC to start up. I don’t know about you, but I’m lazy. So, this is the first thing I am going to do with my NFC tags.
9. Turn Your Lights On/Off
This one is a bit trickier to pull off and only techy people can understand all the mumbo-jumbo but it is still pretty awesome. Wouldn’t it be nice just to turn on your lights with a simple wave of your phone? You will need Philips Hue which is kind of an expensive thing. But here is how one can achieve it.
10. Unlock Your Door
Yes its entirely possible to unlock your front door or well, any door for that matter but for that you need a smartlock. Lockitron is one of the smartlocks that can be unlocked if you have an NFC-enabled Android device with you. You simply attach the included NFC sticker to your door and use it to send a toggle command to Lockitron.
11. Launch a Website URL
There might be times when you want to direct someone to a specific website. This can be a bit tricky, especially if it’s not a simple website address. Instead of having them type out a long random URL, you can write the URL to an NFC tag.
12. Login to your computer
This is possible on both windows and macOS. They’re are two key ways to get this to work, either with a HID method or a 3rd party software. KSEC Can provide the setup and configuration for both!
12. Unlock your phone
Android phones had an option called NFC smart lock which allowed the use of NFC implants and other NFC tags to be used to unlock the phone. This feature however was removed by google the other year.
However there is a way to get this back and working ! Read out guide here
