With this free update, enjoy a completely redesigned interface for setting up HomeKit automations. One that enables you to easily add accessory-, location- and time-based triggers to rules. And ultimately take full advantage of the most powerful features of iOS 11 – with absolute ease.
Apple’s Car Play, unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, is gaining traction as an essential connectivity solution for iPhone and infotainment system integration. CarPlay brings iOS apps and even HomeKit control to your car – via USB, Lightning or Bluetooth. Dozens of vendors now offer direct Carplay integration. Also available are retrofit kits for vehicles with a 2-DIN slot. Vendors include Alpine, Clarion, Pioneer, Kenwood and Sony.
With Eve 3.0, witness a refreshed look and feel to match the latest and greatest version of iOS – and enjoy numerous new features and overall improvements.
Along with refinements to timers and rules, benefit from enhancements to battery status display, dynamic font display, portrait interface on iPads, and more. Take advantage of brand-new guidance that makes it easy to activate notifications for Eve Motion and Eve Door & Window. And experience improved support for Eve Thermo (2017), plus all-new support for iPhone X.
Eve 3.0 requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 11.2 or later. Controlling HomeKit-enabled accessories automatically and away from home requires an Apple TV with tvOS 11 or later or an iPad with iOS 11 or later set up as a home hub.
Without a fourth-generation Apple TV (or Apple TV 4K, or iPad in Home Hub mode), the connected home is incomplete. Only a home hub can provide secure remote access and ensure that rules and timers function while one is away from home. For users of Bluetooth-based devices, such as those belonging to the Eve family, a home hub offers additional advantages.
During the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June this year, Apple unveiled its HomeKit advancements scheduled to launch this fall, when iOS 11 goes public. In this post we’ll explain how you, as an Eve user, may benefit from the many enhancements.
