NFC Profiles for SVC (tags)
by: Direct-services s.r.o. • 33
This plugin allows you to use NFC tags to switch sound profiles and a lot of other settings. You do not have to write anything on them and it is also possible to use the previously registered tags.
This is a "Lite version" of the NFC plug-in for Smart Volume Control. For it to work, you will need to have the Smart Volume Control or the Smart Volume Control+ application installed on your device.
Lite version limitations: 20 profile switch
How you use it:
1) In the "Planning" tab of the Smart Volume Control application select NFC
2) Click on the green "+" icon next to the profile you wish to pair with tag
3) Choose an existing tag with the NFC Tags Manager or select "New NFC tag"
4) A dialog will show up asking you to load a NFC tag
5) Now place the NFC tag near the back side of the NFC compatible device
6) After reading the tag, a new dialogue shows up asking you to name the tag
7) Enter any desired name and choose "OK" to confirm
8) Now you can simply switch profiles by placing the back side of your device near the NFC tag
In case of any conflicts with any other NFC applications, you can do the following:
If you have phone with Ice Cream Sandwich or Jelly Bean open Settings -> Application Manager -> ALL -> YourTagAppName-> Clear defaults.
Please note that your screen will have to be on for the phone to be able to scan the NFC tags. There is a limit in the Android operation system and cannot be changed within the application.
The plugin reads the Unique Identifier of a NFC-enabled tag. This means that you will not need to write any data onto the tag. Instead, you can use any NFC-enabled card. Such as a commuter card, an access card, a student card, a ski pass or whatever you have lying around. These cards can then be linked in order to trigger any profile and settings that is available from within the Smart Volume Control application.
One user scenario could be that you place a NFC-tag in your car. Once the tag is scanned, it should enable the Bluetooth and start the Navigation app of your choice.
Do you like to ride your bike or motorcycle and listen to music through a Bluetooth? Maybe you want to start the tracking app, or Speed volume mode and Headphones mode within the Smart Volume Control before you go, right? Just stick the tag into your tank bag, scan it with the phone and you are all set. You can simply use this scenario just like an athlete who goes jogging.
With NFC Profiles, you can switch the system settings like the WiFi connectivity on and off with a simple touch of a NFC tag. If you are tired of switching off your WiFi, Bluetooth and turning your ringer to silent at night, just do the opposite on the next morning, do not wait a moment longer and place a tag on your bedside table, because this plug-in is just right for you.
Whether you see yourself in any of these scenarios, it will not take more than 1 second to switch to a profile using the NFC tag. We have got you covered!
This plug-in has been tested on NFC compatible devices such as Samsung Galaxy S4, LG Nexus 4 and Nexus 7.
