NFC World’s ‘NFC and the IoT: How NFC can bring plug-and-play simplicity to smart homes and the Internet of Things’ webinar is now available to view online. 564 people signed up to take part in the live event and participants gave the webinar an overall rating of 4.1 out of five.
The hour-long webcast was hosted by Sarah Clark, editor of NFC World, and featured a presentation by Pierre Goarin, marketing manager for the smart home sector in NXP’s NFC team.
The webinar took place on March 2 and topics covered included:
- An overview of where IoT is today and the current roadblocks for mass market adoption;
- The potential for secure element technology to be used to protect and secure the Internet of Things;
- A step-by-step look at the process involved in commissioning new devices via NFC — even when they are not plugged in and powered — using a smart home as a case study;
- A run through the value proposition and the advantages and benefits for NFC commissioning and why the technology and its touch-to-connect simplicity is a key building block of the IoT.
The presentation was followed by an extensive Q&A session that covered the role of NFC in protecting consumers’ security and privacy in the IoT, using a secure element to add security to a smart home or IoT system, what is involved in including NFC in a connected consumer device and advice for manufacturers looking to add IoT capabilities to their products today.
A full recording of the webinar is now available free of charge in the NFC World+ Knowledge Centre, along with a downloadable slide deck from the event.
