French consumer electronics company ARCHOS has formed a partnership with global AI/IoT platform Tuya Smart to launch a new smart home platform, ARCHOS Hello Connect.
Designed to allow consumers the opportunity to convert their traditional homes to smarter living, Hello Connect promises to manage connected objects via one single app, all simply by just asking. Tuya Smart has built-up a comprehensive ecosystem of over 10,000 manufacturers of connected devices,
Compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, ARCHOS’ Hello Connect will allow the user to manage lights, plugs, HVAC systems, security cameras, and more either via the app or via voice control.
In addition, by the end of 2018, ARCHOS will introduce a comprehensive lineup of connected objects to fuel its own ecosystem around ARCHOS Hello and ARCHOS Mate, its AI-enabled devices. The ARCHOS Smart WiFi Bulb (pictured below) will be the first connected object made available. It will be priced at €19.99.
