Title
(EN) Automatic garage door automatic monitoring and controlling system based on the internet of things concept and near field communication (NFC) technology
Abstract
(EN)

A method and system are provided for remotely monitoring the open and close status of a garage door via the internet based on the internet of things concept and NFC (Near Field Communication) technology. The system includes a Door Monitoring & Controlling Device (DMCD) and a web based Advanced Door Management System. The DMCD contains a NFC module, and one or more NFC close/open status tags which work together to monitor the status of the garage door. The NFC tag in this system not only provides status signal but also provides network configure data that eliminates the need to make standalone device configurable for network connectability. The use of NFC technology here will reduce manufacturing cost significantly, and make the configuration easy. The method and system also enable users to remotely open and close the garage door via the internet.
