What does this webinar cover?

The IoT promises a world full of hyper-connected objects where even fridges and lightbulbs are part of the smart home’s network.

But human factors act as a brake on adoption; people just aren’t going to connect their new gear unless it is really easy.

In this webinar you’ll find out why NFC and its touch-to-connect simplicity is a key building block of the IoT, and how you can use it to deliver security, delight users and sell more IoT devices. Using the smart home as a case study, you’ll learn how network commissioning can be simplified and how, with the right app, smartphones and tablets can be used to control or configure almost anything.

This 50-minute webinar offers a unique opportunity to learn from an expert working on the cutting edge of smart home product development.

Who should attend?

Watching this webinar will be of benefit to anyone working on consumer or smart home devices or applications. The webinar is designed for consumer electronics device makers and will be of interest to engineers and product managers in other markets impacted by the arrival of the internet of things, as well as those in the wider NFC ecosystem.
