Hey acsteester -

Not being a hardware person I'm really not qualified to answer that question. I guess it could work in theory but the user experience of having to join a random network before interacting with a device may be perceived as a negative barrier.

Based on what it sounds like you need I would recommend exploring Bluetooth LE. It is secure, I believe it includes proximity support, and iOS provides an API.

Good luck!
