Elgato announced earlier today that their HomeKit-enabled Eve Room and Eve Weather sensors are now available to be purchased in Apple Stores and online via Apple’s Website. The new products both gather data on air quality, temperature, humidity and air pressure which will all help you get insight on making your home smarter for you.
Starting with the Eve Room, which monitors air quality, temperature, and humidity sensors which analyze VOC,s or volatile organic compounds. Unlike most products like this on the market, the Eve Room goes beyond using CO2 by analyzing the substances that directly affect your well-being such as chemicals, mold, to even smoke.
“Elgato’s Eve sensors are the world’s first battery-powered accessories for HomeKit,” says Dr. Mark Fest, CEO of Elgato. “Eve introduces an easy and secure way to gain insights about your home. Upcoming improvements to the HomeKit platform will enable additional features like trigger actions, expanding Eve’s functionality even further.”
Finally there’s the Eve Weather, which is an outdoor sensor that monitors the temperature, humidity and air pressure which ultimately helps you prepare for the day, all without even stepping outside! It’s built to maintain itself outdoors as well, and with its IPX3 water resistance, the elements won’t hurt it at all.
Both products work with your iOS device and collect beautiful graphs that you can view by day, month or year. Available now, you can purchase the Eve Room for $79.95, and the Eve Weather for $49.95 in Apple stores or at Apple.com. The Eve app is available for free in the App Store as well.
