Archos Smart Home, Connected Home and Connected Self Smart objects

Posted by – January 17, 2014

Archos releases a full range of Smart Home Bluetooth 4.0 low energy sensors, cameras, fitness band, scale, blood pressure monitor, movement sensor, temperature meters, GPS/3G tracker (for dogs, cars, bicycles etc), and a bunch more. Archos designed a special 7" Tablet with modified Bluetooth 4.0 to synchronize seamlessly with up to 30 devices at the same time (while the normal Bluetooth 4 spec limits devices to connect to 4 devices). Archos is going to sell their range of Smart Home and Smart Self devices in batches, and where users will be able to buy separate pieces as they wish, buy extra smart plugs, buy extra sensors, cameras, etc as you need more, at prices from around $20 retail per device. Flat batteries last about a couple of years in each of these devices, they don't need to be connected, they all work wirelessly. Archos also presents their really cool Android and iOS app that enables users to program their smart home, selecting conditions, programs, things you want your smart home to do automatically. For example send you a picture to your phone when there is movement in your home, turn off lights when you exit the room, wake you up earlier if the weather is really bad. Archos kind of invented the ARM Powered Tablet, introducing it (on my initial video-blog posting) in 2004 running Qtopia Linux. Then copied by Android and everyone. Archos also introduced the 7" Tablet in 2006, years before the Nexus 7, Archos was the initial Android tablet maker since 2009, this is now Archos showing the industry what is next.
