NFC "Automation"

Years later, people realize that automation may actually be something useful.

GooglePlus comments thread:
Some of my devices: Sonos, Aeotec zWave, Nest, Rain8Net, Various H/T
What's next: CQC-Voice, Brultech GEM
My vlogs:
I'm not sure I understand that. These tag thingies are set up to send commands to his phone when they are tapped? Wouldn't it just be vastly easier to have a program on the phone itself that would do these commands?

It's basically a triggering device, but you write the commands on the actual NFC tag.

You could possible use tasker and a shortcut, but that would require a user to turn the phone on and find the correct shortcut to enable it. With a NFC tag, you simply swipe the phone over the tag and it will run your macro automatically. That means it is easier and quicker to use.

Other systems used:
SageTV w/ cablecard tuner & multiple extenders for viewing
BlueIris and IP cameras for CCTV
Incredible PBX for home phone
