If you have one of the latest Apple iPhone, then you are just an NFC tag away from the convenience of the tap and access. iPhone XR / XS and later can write to NFC tags using the Shortcuts app and scan them in the background. iPhone 7 through iPhone X works with third-party applications and needs to be open for NFC tag scanning to work.
Timeskey NTAG 215 NFC stickers are an easy and affordable way to roll the ball. These tiny labels stick to most surfaces, such as desks, nightstands or even on a wall, making them ideal for most automation tasks.
