Elgato introduces new Eve Aqua and Eve Flare smart home devices
Elgato has expanded its family of Eve smart home products that work seamlessly with Apple’s HomeKit – the Eve Aqua and the Eve Flare – which can communicate with existing Eve products.
Eve Aqua attaches to your outdoor faucet and turns it into an intelligent outlet so you can monitor and automate your irrigation systems.
You can create schedules in the Eve app or with HomeKit as well as track your water consumption as well.
Eve Aqua also makes it possible to activate and stop your sprinklers via your iPhone is using your voice with Siri.
The unit is UV and water resistant so it can stay connected to your outdoor faucet all year round.
Eve Aqua also works with Eve Weather so when it’s raining, it will talk to Eve Aqua so no water is wasted.
The Eve Flare is a versatile ambient light which can work untethered for up to six hours.
It has an IP65 rating which makes it water resistant so it can be used outdoors and indoors and in any conditions.
So it can be used on a balcony or a patio or in your living room or bedroom.
Eve Flare utilizes the power of HomeKit so it can be easily controlled or come to life automatically as part of your smart home set up.
Users can also choose what colour they’d like the light to be with the app allowing you to choose and fine-tune your hues from the full spectrum colour wheel.
The Eve Aqua will be released in July and will be priced at $179. The Eve Flare will be available later in 2018 with pricing yet to be determined.
