Thermostat controls company Cotherm is building Near Field Communication (NFC) technology into its latest products being leveraged by heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) manufacturers, so that installers can adjust the settings for radiators, as well as water or space heaters, via a mobile phone. An installer or appliance user would tap an Android- or iOS-based device against the NFC tag. If the app were installed in the phone, it would automatically be launched, but if not, the phone would display a prompt for the user to download it. Learn why the firm chose NFC technology and how the installer is able to set up the product with a simple interaction.
