From Connected Home to Connected Self ARCHOS is bringing a ton of new products to CES 2014
This year at CES ARCHOS plans to take the wrapping off even more connected objects for Android devices. With everyone looking to automate their lives and control anything they can from their devices ARCHOS has some big plans for the upcoming year. Connected Home is one of the newest things from ARCHOS and this brings a ton of features and functionality right into one place.
Whether accessing through the Android application, or a customized 7 inch tablet that they have designed to sell, you will be able to program various tasks for different scenarios. Some examples would be turning on a light, recording video, or both as soon as one of the motion sensors is triggered. ARCHOS has designed these Bluetooth Low Energy devices with some serious style and kept the size of them extremely small, so they won’t become eyesores in your home. Some of the devices they will have available will be a mini cam, movement tag, motion ball, weather tag and a smart plug.
In addition to Connected Home ARCHOS plans to unveil a Weather Station at CES which will give weather information about the indoors and outdoors. The Weather Station will be able to provide CO2 levels, humidity, temperature, atmospheric pressure levels and much more.
To make the leap into the personal fitness space ARCHOS has planned a few new connected health devices as well. As a brain to all their fitness stuff they will have a Connected Self Application which all the accessories will report information to. With a blood pressure monitor, connected scale and an activity tracker ARCHOS hopes that you will go all in with their systems.
With CES just a week away it won’t be long until we get to check all of these out for ourselves, so stay tuned for more information right from the show floor!
