lights on-off via rfid or nfc

hello guys.I m thinking of a project that when I get back home,I ll use an rfid or nfc card,that it will be read by arduino and send a signal to ifttt so my lights will turn on and off accordingly.
Is there any way to achieve that by using RFID or NFC?is there a simplest way i didn't think of?
Problems to solve are a)when I leave but the rest of the family stays I dont want the lights to turn off(so i cann't use my mobile device and tasker) and b)when I get back I want a series of things to start happening (lets say ac on,lights on)BUT first of all comes the ifttt trigger..if I find how to trigger it's a done thing...
Thanks in advance for your help!!
