Abstract: In this paper, 2 problems affecting the acceptance of wireless devices by a wider public are introduced, and possible solutions are suggested. The first obstacle is linked to the necessity of changing the batteries of autonomous wireless nodes after. Although this problem can be solved to a certain extent by using battery-less devices, the energy need of flexible protocols such as ZigBee increases the complexity of such a device autonomously joining a network (including association and binding). A solution based on RFID components that allow the transfer of pairing information using a “Touch and Pair” system is presented. It is shown that a consumer device such as an iPod/iPhone can be modified to serve as a user friendly pairing device. Using ultra low power components, battery-less switches sending ZigBee compatible frames are built. Key network parameters can be transferred from the iPod/iPhone to the switch or other endpoints and thus allow a fast and simple configuration of battery-less elements on the network.
