    Abstract

    The gaining popularity of Near Field Communication (NFC)-enabled applications has been facilitated by increased levels of NFC smartphone adoption. However, the existing touch-driven interaction using NFC smartphone for home environment is neither quick nor convenient. The primary contribution of this paper is to introduce a novel solution for a convenient mobiquitous home service, allowing users to operate digital appliances upon touching a photo interface with their NFC smartphones. This system is known as NFC Smartphone Entertainment Systems (NFC SES). This paper also validates the user perception and behavioral intention to use NFC SES. Fifty-two participants participated in the experiment and user evaluation. Results indicated that perceived ease of use was a causal antecedent to perceived usefulness. Individuals' behavioral intention to use NFC SES was built through user's perceived usefulness and convenience. Our findings offer a fresh insight for scholars, mobile device manufacturers and service providers in developing NFC-enabled applications.
