How it Works
To order a smart vase, simply choose your desired homeware item and add it to your cart. Then, proceed to checkout and enter the link to the recipient's favourite song in the notes section. We will program the NFC chip inside the item with the song link, and the recipient will be able to enjoy their favourite song whenever they tap their phone on the item.
Important Things to Keep in Mind
- Make sure the recipient has the correct program installed on their phone. For example, if you send a Spotify link, make sure they have Spotify installed.
- The recipient's phone must have NFC capabilities. Most modern phones have NFC, but it's always a good idea to check before ordering.
- If the recipient has a chunky phone case, it may block the NFC signal. Try removing the case if this happens.
How to Re-program the NFC Chip

We will send you instructions on how to reprogram the NFC chip with your order. This makes it easy to change the song that plays when the recipient taps their phone on the item.
How does it work?
It uses Near Field Communication or NFC to read a chip inside the product. It's the same technology as paying for things with your card on your phone.
Is it safe?
Very! It is only programmed to transmit the data via the link you sent me. It has no malware or external software required to be downloaded.
How will I know it will work on my phone?
iPhone 8 and up will work and almost every android phone. If you can have your bank card on your phone for payments, it will work. You might have to adjust some settings or remove a bulky phone case if it doesn't work right away.
Can I change the song at a later date?
Absolutely! The NFC chip is not locked, so you can reprogram it. It is quite simple but does mean you have to be able to download the app NFC Tools. There may be others out there but this is the one I use and trust.
Instructions will be sent with your piece.
How long will it last?
It's technology.....I cannot say for sure but hopefully for as long as you keep the vase but technology is prone to failure at some point. There are no guarantees on the life of the technology included with the device. You will only receive a working one.
Sometimes it doesn't connect right away?
That can happen, sometimes a slight position change of the phone OR bulky phone cases can block the signal. Try removing the case.
Do I need to keep the sticker on?
NO, the sticker is just to guide you to the location of the NFC chip, once you're confident you remember where it is, the sticker can be removed.
Please note I will not be programming any rude, violent, pornographic, racist, videos involving hate crimes or anything of this nature. Your purchase will be refunded immediately.
