To setup your Philips Hue System with Elgato’s Eve, you’ll first need to download the free Hue App from Philips. Assigning the lamps to rooms, setting up scenes, controlling brightness & color, and switching on/off lights is done via Eve after you complete this setup process.
Once you’ve finished the basic installation of your Hue bridge and lamps using the Hue app, open the Eve app. You’ll find the bridge and lamps in the “standard room” of your home. Assigning the bridge and lamps to your rooms and using your Hue lamps will happen in the Eve app.
Elgato Eve 1.2 is available today and offers many enhancements and new features for users with iOS 9.1 or newer. With HomeKit technology, all your data is transferred and stored with end-to-end encryption, so only you can access it. With this version of Eve, you can export your Eve sensors’ historical data on air quality, temperature, humidity, air pressure, energy consumption, and more.
