I tried http://www.thesayansblog.net/2017/11/re-enable-nfc-smart-lock.html but it didn't work for me.
I have found another way to re-enable the NFC Smart Lock feature on Android, though it still requires root and manually editing a preferences file.

@johnyma22 Thank you for the reply. I understand the difficulty in creating something this durable and I am impressed by your customer support regarding the matter. Although I shan't be pre-ordering, I eagerly await your next release.
@johnyma22 said in NFC Ring Control app configuration & interaction:
Can I set up a series of actions to occur with one tap of a tag? <-- See The app in Google Play called "Tasker". I'd recommend having one action on each side of the ring.
Will NFC Ring Control recognize and launch any app installed on my device? <-- Depends on the app and what intents it supports. You can use ANY NFC software with our rings, you aren't just limited to ours.
2.1 Or, can I use the writer and ring to accomplish this? See 1.
By the way, these are actions I'll use at the bedside in the morning and night so I’m looking for the best solutions.
Last, I still need to purchase some NFC tags and the best ring. Are there any guidelines or requirements? <-- Just look at the datasheets for each ring to see which suits you best. I'd recommend the 2016 rings for new users and 2013 for more experienced :)
Many thanks for your response. I'll get to work on this and make a decision.
That might be helpful, I'm not sure (I've "bricked" a couple of sticker ntag216s permanently by accident and stopped playing with that side of things).
I did configure mine, prior to switching to smart lock, to use my normal swipe pattern plus unlock nfc. Having removed all my registered rings leaving just the pin unlock in the nfc unlock I then had pattern + nfc ring password.
Skip to the end. He's goin real slow. It will read the ring as soon as you place it in the read spot. So you brush to wake it, immediately press ring and bamn - it operates. Under a second in my tests.
