It could mean, for instance, that once a traveller has paid for a hotel room online the key to get in the room can be texted to them.

“In addition to the key itself the guest will also get a welcome receipt specifying the room he is staying at,” says Gard Gabrielsen from electronic lock maker Vingcard Elsafe that has developed a hotel booking system using NFC.

“He will also typically get the GPS coordinates to the hotel he is staying at,” he adds.

“But the key thing is that when the guest is then coming to the hotel he can totally bypass the reception desk and go straight to his room,” he says.

“The telephone itself will open the door by just presenting the phone in front of the card reader.”
