How To Activate NFC On iPhone

If you have an iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, or X with iOS 14 installed, follow these simple steps to access your AED Help Hub.

  1. Open the Settings App

Scanning NFC Stickers

Every AED cabinet package we send out comes with an NFC (Near-field Communication) sticker placed on the front of the cabinet door.

Your sticker takes you to a custom resource center where you can find AED maintenance info, frequently-asked-questions, and exclusive accessory offers, all of which are specific to your purchased device.

Why Do We Use NFC Technology?

We choose to use NFC stickers because near-field communication allows us to provide you assistance throughout the extended use-life of your AED. 

Longterm Advantages of NFC

  • Flexibility - we can regularly update your AED Help Hub content to provide you exclusive pricing offers on accessories, updated maintenance info, guided videos, and more. Printed scannable codes can't be updated after the fact, meaning that link stays stagnant. 
  •  Durability - if a QR code and bar code is damaged or fades, you won't be able to scan it. NFC stickers are designed for longer-term reliability, so you can access your AED Help Hub for as long as you own the AED!
