    I can understand the purpose of this but i doubt many would buy this. I rather unlock the phone via the power button or on screen then this.

      I agree.

    This would be prefect for something like a car charger so then you can use the hands free Google Now

      Or car suction cup mount thing or handsfree Bluetooth car deck, etc. I agree, this could be good.

      You can do this right now with NFC task launcher and Tasker(secure settings plugin). I personally don’t bother with the NFC tag I just have it set so that when I am connected to my Car Bluetooth or my home or work wifi it disables the lockscreen. I also use tasker to take a picture with the front facing camera and gps co-ordinates, and email it to myself if you fail the lockscreen 3 times.

      How do you make it unlock automatic when in your home WiFi ?

    • Josh Brown

      Use tasker and secure settings and set it as a task and the set a exit task that re enable it when you disconnect.

    “only” $550? lmao

    Didn’t know moto x had a bunch of accessories.. this sounds good

  • Sean McConnell

    Does it only work with Moto X or any NFC enabled device?

    • Josh Brown

      If it is just a programmable NFC tag than you can get the same function with NFC Task launcher and Tasker. But you could just make one yourself for way cheaper.

    $550 is supposed to be cheap?

      Compared to the AT&T price.

    Buy a 5$ money clip and 5$ worth of NFC stickers and you have the same product. This thing is so overpriced it’s awesome haha.

    • Josh Brown

      Awesome someone else that uses NFC tags or at least knows what they are.

      you obviously hold no value to your time… Buy 10 dollars worth of things (its probably more) and work on programming it yourself and making sure it looks nice and is usable and wont have a warranty.

      But hey, you saved 10 bucks, right? Just enough for a starbucks coffee.

    • Josh Brown

      Programing it? It takes 10 seconds to set up, if that. Have you never used nfc tags?
