Elgato today launches Eve Light Switch (USA & Canada only), the world’s first light switch with HomeKit technology for the most seamless light control experience. Eve Light Switch replaces a single pole switch, and enables you to use the Eve app or Siri to control your existing chandeliers, built-in lights, ceiling lamps, ceiling fans, and more. And, since Eve Light Switch features a capacitive touch sensor to manually turn a light on or off, even family members and guests without an iOS device are able to operate your lights.
Eve Light Switch transforms any existing single or multi-bulb setup into an intelligent lighting system. Create scenes to control Eve Light Switch and other HomeKit-enabled accessories with a single command, or set timers and have them work on their own. Better yet, set rules that incorporate Eve Light Switch to further automate your connected home.
Like other Eve accessories, Eve Light Switch connects directly to your iPhone or iPad using Bluetooth low energy technology, without the need for a hub, gateway bridge, or complicated WiFi configuration. Use the Eve app to pair your iOS device with Eve Light Switch, add accessories to a room, and set a Siri name like Ceiling Lamps. You can now control your lighting by talking to Siri, tapping your phone, or touching the sensor panel on Eve Light Switch.
Timers, Scenes, Rules and Groups
Create scenes to control Eve Light Switch and other HomeKit-enabled accessories simultaneously, with a single tap on your iPhone or via Siri. Alternatively, set timers to synchronize them with your routine.
For more advanced functions, create rules with location triggers to ensure that your lights illuminate upon your arrival. Or set a rule with a value trigger that automatically switches off your lights when you turn off your Entertainment system that’s connected to Eve Energy.
Have Eve Light Switch in multiple rooms? Group them in the Eve app and say one sentence to control all your lights via Siri, without lifting a finger or roaming your home.
Compatibility and Installation
Eve Light Switch requires a neutral wire and replaces a single pole switch. Not intended for use in a 3-way installation where lights are controlled by more than one switch. Only for use with copper or copper clad wire in dry, indoor locations.
