  • looking for how to add NFC Tags

    I cant seem to get the NFC tags to work it there any documentation on how to add them to the plug in
    Looked over the help tab and still not getting it. I scan the tag with the plugin but nothing happens

    Sure I'm missing a step

    Thanks Ken

    You add the NFC tags in the plugin.
    You will have to use an app on your phone like "TagWriter" to get the actual tag value. Once you have that you will add that to the new tag in the plugin

      Grab BLControl 1.0.36 from Google Play and you can now write text to a tag right in the app.

        Blade what type of value is it looking for or does it matter. I tried to write a tag and im having no luck can you give a few pointers I'm assuming that if it acts on the tag when scanned it would show in the activity in the BLcontrol plugin correct

        Cheers Ken

          It is plain text you can write to the tag.
          Select the "Write" radio button, then enter in the text in the box at the bottom (I entered "test1") and scan your tag. It should say it was written successfully. I tried it here a few times and it seemed to work fine.
          You would then need to add an NFC tag value in the BLControl plugin in HS and assign an action to it. I just added a tag called "test1" and assigned an action to speak a message.

          You will put the NFC app screen back to "Scan" and then scan your tag.
          Cheers,

                I have to agree it is a really cool plug in. I think I need to get more NFC tags now. That is probably my favorite feature now that I got it working!!!!!!

                Cheers Ken

                  I'm not getting this to work. i write

                  "sleep" in the NFC tag field then hover the phone over an empty nfc tag.
                  All i get is a screen saying "unknown"

                    NFC is enabled on the phone?
                    Very odd. No one else is reporting it not working
