Advantages of NFC

Duetware & TapNLink NFC 3-Stroke Configuration for HMI on Android and iOS Smartphones

Secure, easy connection for mobile HMI apps

Duetware solution provides system designers all the benefits of NFC with no coding, no effort, and no risks.

Near Field Communication (NFC) has growing popularity with designers, and consumers as an easy, secure, and low-cost way to connect Android and iOS mobile phones to appliances, or other electronic systems. NFC fills crucial needs in connected appliances for:

  • Discretion and reduced emissions
  • Sure, intuitive device pairing
  • Transaction security
  • Optimization of power consumption

Duetware and NFC tags for Mobile HMI Apps

Wireless products and designs that are based on Duetware use a passive NFC device (NFC tag) capable of bi-directional communication. NFC is not limited to reading static data as some apps do with QR codes. Used with Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, NFC automates and secures the wake up and pairing of the appliance’s wireless interface with the mobile phone. Used in an NFC-only design, the mobile can retrieve and send data via NFC to the appliance in NFC 3-Stroke Configuration mode.

With NFC, the interaction of the user and an appliance require no physical contact with surfaces or controls on the appliance. This greatly reduces hygienic concerns about shared tactile controls

For all of these reasons, NFC and mobile HMI apps are replacing LCDs, keypads and mechanical controls on everything from home appliances to access control systems. 

With Duetware-based wireless products, designers get all of the advantages of NFC without designing complex antennas or writing a single line of code. With the IoTize software ecosystem and Ionic / Cordova app generator, creating mobile HMI apps that interface over NFC takes no time, no expertise, and no coding.
