What does NFC mean? And how does it work?

NFC (or Near Field Communication) is a wireless data transfer method to communicate between your phone and your system.

What is NFC?

Simply put NFC (Near field communication) is a method of wireless data transfer that detects and then enables technology in close proximity to communicate without the need for an internet connection. It's easy, fast, and works automatically.

How does it work?

The tech involved is deceptively simple: evolved from radio frequency identification (RFID) tech, an NFC chip operates as one part of a wireless link. Once it's activated by another chip, small amounts of data between the two devices can be transferred when held a few centimeters from each other. In our case, the Aquablu App does this for you.

Is my Phone compatible? 

  • Apple's phones from the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus onwards also have NFC functionality
  • Almost all new generation Andriod phones have NFC functionality
