Eve Degree, the eleventh member of the Eve family, is available from today. The temperature and humidity monitor combines precise sensors and groundbreaking HomeKit technology in a beautiful, weatherproof aluminum housing adorned by an LCD display. Eve Degree is the luxury variant of a conventional hygro-thermometer and offers unrivaled comfort thanks to seamless iPhone integration, while HomeKit and the Eve app ensure ease of use, powerful analytics, superior data protection, and advanced security.
Field of operation
Whether via the LCD display, a quick glance at the iPhone control center, or simply a Siri query, Eve Degree delivers real-time readings in addition to historical measurements of temperature, humidity and air pressure via the Eve app. Thanks to an anodized aluminum case with IPX3 water resistance, the connected hygro-thermometer is suitable not only for the home but also the garden or patio. Eve Degree measures only 54 x 54 x 15 mm / 2.1 x 2.1 x 0.6 in, and is powered by a replaceable CR2450 battery that provides a lifetime of over a year.
Wireless and no bridge required
Thanks to Bluetooth low energy technology, Eve Degree does not require an external power supply, nor a bridge to comply with HomeKit. Moreover, since the unit is free of cables, it can be placed atop any surface or mounted on a wall. Set up in a few moments, Eve Degree delivers accurate readings to the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. If an Apple TV is present as a home hub, Eve Degree can automatically trigger scenes involving fans, humidifiers and other air-care-related appliances.
