Default NFC Tags

Hello guys.

I was thinking about getting some NFC Tags to set up around my house. For example, one at the main door so that when I leave it changes my Nest thermostat to Away mode and turns off Wifi on my phone.

I know it's possible, but I'm not sure what to buy. There are so many options, 64k, 128k and apparently for specific phone brands.

What should I get for the N5 and for my intended use?

Thank you!

The size doesn't really matter because nfc commands barely take any memory. However, I read that Mifare tags don't work with newer phones like the N5.
