homes are increasingly connected. Everyday appliances, from lights and ceiling fans to washing machines are now being connected to the Internet. Consumers will be able to control appliances, monitor and manage energy consumption, increase comfort and enhance entertainment to a whole new level as NFC enabled consumables make the Internet of Things (IoT) a reality. Our mobile device will increasingly become the ‘remote control for our lives’.

Connecting our appliances to the home network, what is known as network commissioning, can be complicated or cumbersome (e.g.: install keys or button cumbersome push sequences). Thanks to NFC, appliances can be added to the home network with a single tap, and with the right app our smartphones and tablets can be used to control or configure almost everything.

In this session, we present how NXP® solutions and NFC technology facilitates an easy, flexible, secure and protocol agnostic solution for one-touch network commissioning of our smart home devices
