Summertime is upon us – and that means, of course, summer vacation! Having equipped our potted plants on the patio to survive a few days without us, we now turn our attention to the yard. After all, we want our grass to be green when we return from our two-week vacation.
High indoor humidity on hot summer days is not only super uncomfortable, it can also cause structural damage and pose a health risk. In basement rooms, like our guest room, the humidity can rise very quickly. To make the room more comfortable, we put in a dehumidifier
Turn your tap into an intelligent water outlet without tying up your only outdoor faucet. A two-way tap connector is an easy and inexpensive way to install Eve Aqua on your outdoor faucet and still have an outlet to attach a garden hose, fill up your watering can and more.

Ever since its debut at CES 2018 earlier this year, Eve Button has become a hot topic. And now, thanks to the release of iOS 11.3 and tvOS 11.3, it offers an additional function that essentially doubles your Eve Button controls, giving you the ability to toggle between device states. In other words, one gesture – a single, double, or long press – can now execute two scenes. Take Eve Energy, for example. Previously, if you wanted to switch it on and off via Eve Button, you had to assign one scene (Power on) to a single-press, and a second (Power off) to a double-press. Now, using conditions, you can simply use a single-press to activate either scene – much like any switch.
