Products are typically shipped with paper manuals and guides with instructions regarding setup, registration, and operation. Paper-based instructions can be expensive and inefficient and lack customization. Moreover, the experience of dealing with paper while setting up and operating a product can be cumbersome and inconvenient.
This disclosure describes use of a small low power transmitter within product packaging to transmit a signal upon unboxing of the product. The signal includes a product identifier. Upon receiving the identifier, appropriate product information is retrieved by a nearby receiving device to trigger relevant actions. For example, the user is provided with customized multimedia guidance for setting up and using the product.
