With NFC your life can be more comfortable. It can be saver as well, because in your car the Bluetooth hands free kit will be connected automatically. Your wife will receive a message that you are available in the car automatically as well. An Android phone with NFC can start any app or can start a browser with stored URL. Right now I do not know if there is an app that will push a message automatically. If not, then I can trigger a crown job on my web server. Anyhow I prefer the app, because it will charge less effort.
For travelling Field Application Engineers like me it is an important feature to be reachable by phone. I also can inform my team in the office that I am in back my car again. If I leave my home or office and will stay in my car then WiFi can be powered off. GPS and the navigation software can be powered on. And as soon I jump out of the car Bluetooth can be powered off, the ring tone can be powered off and I don’t need GPS during the meeting with my customer as well. All this can be trigged by one or two NFC tags. With one tag in the car you use the feature called toggle. You just can change between on and off of something. I came to the conclusion that I need two NFC tags in the car because as soon I leave the house or office I don’t need Wi-Fi anymore. For the rest of the day WiFi is not in use. That means that the NFC tag “in my car” will contain the command to power off the WiFi and the tag “out of the car” will not power on WiFi again.
The following tasks will be automatically triggered by NFC
- On / off: Bluetooth, GPS, Navigation software, ring tone, Win Amp to stream music
- Message to inform my team / wife / family
Maybe I spent a third tag for “end of the day” because end of the day the ring tone can be powered on out of the car also. The third NFC tag can be a part of my bunch of keys.
BTW, Samsung offers you a blocking mode. If your boss is stressing too much – just block him.
