Archos Smart Home
In June 2014, Archos introduced their connected home offering, dubbed Smart Home. The Smart home system includes a series of devices for monitoring and controlling one's home. A starter kit is available that includes cameras, weather tags, motion tags and a tablet control. More devices are set to launch later in 2014.
Using Smart Home, users can control and monitor various aspects of their home. Devices are totally wireless and connect to a main tablet control via Bluetooth. Battery life is up to a year, and the devices require very little knowledge to install. Users can monitor temperature, motion and take photos, either on the tablet or by using a connected smartphone and the Smart Home application.
The Smart Home start kit starts at £199.99 with additional devices starting at £29.99.
