Eve and Value Triggers
The latest iOS 9.3 release is important for the Eve accessory range, as it enables Value Triggers for Bluetooth Smart devices for the first time. For example, a door contact sensor like Eve Door & Window, will now be able to activate other HomeKit enabled devices such as Eve Energy. So when a door is opened, a fan could be turned on using Eve Energy or perhaps a Philips Hue lamp could be lit. The required updates for Eve devices have been completed, and will be released via the Eve app, as soon as they are approved.
These features require Eve 1.6 and iOS 9.3 or later.
