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.
Beginning with version 1.5, Eve supports all HomeKit-based triggers (location, value, time) and conditions. The simplest type of automation with HomeKit involves timers. At a user-defined day and time, the timer triggers a prebuilt scene, such as turning on the kitchen lights via Eve Energy. Timers can be set to fire up once or on repeating basis, e.g., every day at 7 a.m. This post explains how to use timers.
Elgato today unveiled Eve Motion, the first wireless motion sensor with HomeKit technology. Ready to be placed anywhere inside or outside your home, Eve Motion automatically activates HomeKit Scenes and accessories. Upon detecting the user’s presence or absence, it activates and deactivates power outlets, HVAC systems, lights or any combination thereof.
Eve 1.5, our new version, supports all HomeKit-based triggers (location, time, accessory) and conditions. With rules, you can automatically trigger scenes using your location or when the accessory state of your HomeKit-enabled devices has changed.
In addition to numerous fixes and enhancements, Eve 1.4 comes with support for time-based triggers. Time triggers execute an existing scene at a given time. The triggers can be used, for example, to automatically start the Good Morning scene for devices that are switched on using Eve Energy, or other switches or lamps.
