Available immediately for users of iOS 11 devices and home hubs with tvOS 11, our latest firmware update for Eve Door & Window significantly improves performance by adding support for the new Bluetooth architecture introduced in iOS 11. Using secure broadcast notifications, Eve Door & Window now immediately reports when your door or window is opened or closed, and triggers notifications or automations using your home hub running tvOS 11 – there’s practically no difference in behavior when compared to an IP-based accessory.
To install this update, open Eve. Refer to the small red circle with a number on the Settings icon in the tab bar. The number indicates the number of accessories with outdated firmware (or accessories that require a battery replacement). Tap Settings, then tap Accessories. Eve accessories that are ready to be upgraded are marked by a red arrow icon. This firmware update requires a direct connection between the accessory and your device, so please ensure that you remain close to Eve Door & Window during the process.
