Join NFC World and NXP for a one-hour webinar to find out how NFC can bring plug-and-play simplicity to smart homes and the internet of things (IoT).

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 free to attend, one hour webinar offers a unique opportunity to learn from an expert working on the cutting edge of smart home product development.

The webinar will be chaired by NFC World’s editor, Sarah Clark, and there will be ample opportunity for questions and answers at the end.
