What is a program? How can i create / modify / delete a program?

Programs are the core of the Smart Home system. Thanks to programs, you can use many accessories through scenarios. For example, the opening of a door is the trigger for a photo to be taken and sent to you via email. A program is made of three steps: Trigger(s), Action, Schedule.


Go to the  ARCHOS Smart Home app and select the  Progams tab on the tab column, left.


Creating a program


According to the accessories linked to your ARCHOS Smart Home Tablet, many options are available. Many types of programs can be set  thanks to your accessories.

For example: You can program to take a picture when a designated door is opened and ask to send the picture via email to a specified person.

Please read the FAQs dealing with the accessories to see the different possibilities of programs.


On the Program tab's main page, press the  button up right. A new page is opened.

Creating the program


Once you have named your program, you need to select one or many triggers.


  • Select the button Add a trigger then select the accessory Movement Tag that you have put on the door to be controlled.
    Your Movement Tag can react in two ways: when the door is opened or in case of motion. Make sure to select the desired event.
  • Select OK to save.

In this example, we have selected Door (1) because we want to be alerted when the door is opened (2). We confirm by selecting OK (3).



Now, select one or many actions. In this example, the different actions are taking a photo and sending an email :


  • Press Add an Action and select Picture for the desired Mini Cam.

The new program is ON by default. You can turn it off at any time from the Programs tab by selecting the ON button as followed.
