Eve Energy, Eve Energy Strip, Eve Thermo, Eve Aqua and now Eve Light Switch – Eve’s family of accessories with autonomous schedules is growing. With autonomous schedules, you can easily program lights, appliances, radiators, and sprinkler systems to turn on and off automatically and reliably at set times. Today I’d like to share just how you can take advantage of this autonomy.
Available immediately for users of iOS 11 devices and home hubs with tvOS 11, our latest firmware update for Eve Light Switch significantly improves performance by adding support for the new Bluetooth architecture introduced in iOS 11. Using secure broadcast notifications, Eve Light Switch now immediately triggers automations through your home hub running tvOS 11, so you can enjoy fast switching of all of your HomeKit-enabled accessories with just a touch of your finger – there’s practically no difference in behavior when compared to an IP-based accessory.
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.
