Elgato has rolled out the new Eve Motion, a wireless motion sensor with HomeKit technology. Ready to be placed anywhere inside or outside your home, it enables users to create individual HomeKit automations.
By detecting the user’s presence or absence, it will enable or disable power outlets, HVAC systems, lights or any combination thereof. You don’t even need to open an app or speak a Siri command to set your Good Morning scene, light up the Christmas tree in the evening, or turn on the fan during a hot day.
Eve Motion is the ninth member of the Elgato Eve family of HomeKit-enabled products, all of which communicate directly with iPhone, iPad and Apple TV, without requiring an additional bridge. It’s available for US$49.95.
Apple's HomeKit is a framework that allows control of compatible home automation devices through iOS and Siri.
