    NFC Tech in hotel 

    How could state of the art technologies work at a hotel? Could they?

    Milestone believes NFC can transform how hoteliers welcome guests for an exceptional stay at their properties entwined with the newest technologies on the market.

    What is NFC?

    Do you know what NFC is? It is not National Football Conference if that’s what you were thinking. NFC stands for Near-Field Communications, an application used through mobile devices to transmit data at close proximity. Check out the picture below for a visual on how an NFC works.



    Although this technology is still new, leaving a large portion of the market untapped; NFC has proven thus far its abilities to enhance ways in which consumers make transactions, exchange content, connect to other devices and much more.  NFC is a fast, easy way to get relevant, useful information although it is not a constant stream of data because it requires physical interaction between users operated data devices and the NFC tag or sticker. Furthermore, NFC tags are used as a canvas for accessible information on which any type of landing page can be programmed.

    NFC in the Current Marketplace:

    Some of the common ways NFC technology is currently used by companies and consumers are payment checkout, sending files, photos, contacts, music, etc. to another device with a simple tap, downloading information, opening doors, getting tickets or passes and parking meters.

    How can NFC benefit our Hotels?

    This technology holds undiscovered uses, many of which can be incorporated into the lodging industry. Tags can be used in various ways at our hotels. To begin, we could have trend triggered tags in which local and upcoming trends in the area can be promoted through the use of NFC. In addition, further interaction between client and customer can be made through the use of NFC by linking tags to Google + Pages, Facebook, Twitter and so forth. The process of checkout can be made seamless through mobile device usage. In addition, hotel keys can be directly transmitted by phone which in turn can increase the security of users.

    How is Milestone going to help me utilize this fantastic technology?

    One of the main benefits to NFC technology is that every tag can be customized individually to fit each hotel’s specific needs, interests, and unique selling point. This can range from specific hotel hosted events, special offers and packages, social media profiles, on-site hotel restaurants, spas, wedding/meeting venues, etc.

    Furthermore, hotel guests can take away information about the hotel from interaction with NFC tags. They can store it on their devices for a later usage, sharing capabilities and fostering customer relationships which may result in customer retention and increase brand loyalty. It is an up-coming innovation in an up-ward moving trend that customers are showing interest in and willingness to use. If you are a hotel owner of a budget hotel, this technology can be implemented at the property-level as a value-based service, additional to the product they already offer.

    Is anyone of my competitors already using it?

    The Clarion Hotel in Stockholm Sweden was the first in the hotel industry to make use of this technology on site. They have completed a beta project featuring 28 loyal returning customers in which they participated in the use of replaced hotel keys with NFC-enabled mobile phones.

    Overall, the guests were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the interaction with the hotel via their mobile phones. The surveyed guests claimed they saved time during their check-in and overall stay compared to other hotel stays. They also agreed that the mobile key application has made their hotel stay more comfortable. Lastly, the surveyed guests showed interest in using the mobile keys application if their mobile phone supported it.

    Hotel guests were also asked what kind of other services connected to the mobile key application would be successful, out of which results steered towards information about the hotel such as a map, room service menus, spa and gym. The survey also included high interest in paying for food and other services at the hotel through the device as well as obtaining additional information about hotel offerings, restaurants, bars and public transport in the vicinity.

    How exactly am I missing out if I am not using NFC?

    If you are a hotel owner, you can ensure you do not miss out on the benefits of this new technology. It’s a sustainable practice as you eliminate costs for paper resources such as location based services, post purchase offers, area maps,

    brochures, printed menus, maps, etc. it give you the availability to develop a better product and specialize it to meet your customers’ needs whether that be through hotel coupons or trends and events surrounding your property.

    Milestone seeks to engage more hotel visitors by allowing hotels to adopt NFC into their properties and as a result encourage more customer interaction via mobile touch-points to their website and social media channels.

    UHF Anti-metal tag for application on metal surface 

    There are many applications where passive UHF RFID tags can be usefu, like logistic tracking management, warehouses management, tracking management.

    In practical RFID applications, metals appear in many occasions, like Supply chains using metal carts, tracking of metal tools. However, the Ultra High Frequency band is very sensitive to metal. When the tag is near a metal, the radiation efficiency and directivity change will be affected seriously, the reading distance will be reduced quickly that it cannot work.

    Therefore, it’s necessary to adopt a special tag which can be applied on the metal surface, And we called such tag as Anti-metal tag. Anti-metal tag can work in the 915 MHz frequency band and is able to maintain a good performance on the metal surface.

    NFC technology will be interesting & important in your life 

    NFC should have your attention because it is paving the way of the future. With the technology as it currently stands, credit cards and cash are basically redundant. We no longer need them. Why would we? It also makes a lot of other things redundant, too.

    For example, in Hong Kong, commuters are able to touch their phone on and off public transport – so the phone effectively works as the card. All people need is an NFC enabled phone, and the relevant app. We’ve got a similar setup here in our Aussie backyards. The Opal card system in NSW uses NFC technology, which has replaced the now archaic paper-ticket method.

    If it all seems a bit much, this interconnectivity, zap, tap, frapping us at every corner we turn, you’d better get used to it. Because we’re only at the beginning.

    Although NFC technology is only catching on around the globe slowly, who knows what it holds in store? It doesn’t even have to be NFC technology. What’s important is that this sort of capability is available. In ten, twenty, maybe fifty years’ time, there’s a chance that chips like these will be implanted directly into our bodies. Sure, I’m merely speculating. But why not?

    Today, you use a credit card to pay for your day-to-day living expenses. Tomorrow, you use your mobile phone. The day after tomorrow, you use your wrist. It really isn’t that far-fetched.

    As technology evolves, our lives change. And technology, dear reader, is evolving not just rapidly – but in exponential proportions. Hold on, sit tight, and get ready. Because what’s ahead, it looks exciting… Or creepy, I guess. That’s for you to decide.

    RFID technology make foods more safety 

    RFID technology has led to better safety handling of raw materials and finished products in the food industry and is used to speed up the processing of manufactured goods and materials. RFID technology enables identification of an object from a distance without requiring a line of sight. RFID tags can also incorporate additional information such as details of the product and manufacturer and can transmit measured environmental factors such as temperature and relative humidity.

    Scientists from North Carolina State University detail the numerous applications of RFID technology in the food industry:

    • Within supply chain management, RFID tags can be used to track food products during distribution and storage.
    • Multiple tags can be read simultaneously and RFID technology can facilitate automated product shipments from a warehouse to a retail location.
    • Freshtime RFID tags monitor the shelf life of foods to which they are attached. The tags sense temperature and integrate it over time to determine the shelf life of products.
    • ThermAssureRF is a new RFID-based system that combines tracking and temperature measurement to ensure foods such as meat, fruit and dairy products remain at a safe temperature during transportation and storage. It is currently being used by companies that ship wine, produce, seafood, meat, poultry, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.

    “The challenges that face RFID technology are read range and accuracy in retail environments, non-uniform standards, cost, recycling issues, and privacy and security concerns” says lead researcher K.P. Sandeep. “Another challenge is the differences in frequencies allocated for RFID applications because each country is setting their own standards for the new technology.”

    What’s the difference between NFC and Bluetooth? 

    To recap, NFC allows suitably equipped phones to make ‘contactless’ payments for products and services, by holding the phone close to a reader terminal. The technology is actually much simpler than Bluetooth and very closely related to RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology. This is used in security tags, for protecting products in shops and RFID chips are embedded in travel cards (like London’s Oyster system). NFC has a very short range of around 20cm (Bluetooth devices typically communicate over distances of 5 – 10 metres) and unlike Bluetooth the amount of data that can be transferred to and from the NFC module in the phone is limited and tightly controlled.

    photobank (8)

    As well as being able to make secure payments, NFC smart phones can also read RFID chips implanted in signs and posters, to tell the phone to go to a particular website to display relevant information. NFC phones can also exchange data with one other, for swapping virtual business cards and so on. It’s going to add little to the cost of a smart phone and should prove popular, but while there are some sophisticated security measures in place be prepared for the inevitable slew of privacy intrusion and lost or stolen phone horror stories.

    There are many kinds of NFC tags&cards at From there, you will find out that NFC had been use widely in our life.
