Elgato’s Eve Light Switch is the world’s first light switch with Apple HomeKit technology for a light control experience. It transforms any single or multi-bulb setup into a Siri-enabled lighting system, so you can use your voice to control your existing bulbs regardless of their shape, size or color.
The Eve Light Switch replaces a single pole switch and features Bluetooth low energy technology to ensure easy setup, reliable operation, and power efficiency. It’s one of eight products in the Elgato Eve line of HomeKit-enabled accessories. Controlling your light bulbs using Siri is a compelling experience, but up until now, you were out of luck if they were switched off at the wall. By integrating Bluetooth low energy technology into the wall switch itself, the Eve Light Switch is the first HomeKit-enabled product that provides seamless access to your lights.
It sports a capacitive touch sensor to manually turn a light on or off. It replaces a single pole switch and is ready for DIY or professional installation. Thanks to Bluetooth low energy technology, the switch doesn’t require a gateway or bridge, and is totally immune to cyber attacks over the internet. To control Eve Light Switch when you are away from home, all you need is an Apple TV 4 that is set up as a Home Hub. To control brightness and color, combine Eve Light Switch with a HomeKit-enabled Philips Hue setup.
With Eve, you can see your home at a glance right on your iPhone and iPad. The Eve family of HomeKit accessories gathers data on air quality, temperature, humidity, air pressure, energy consumption and more. Gain insights that help you improve your comfort, and make your home a smarter place. Use the free Eve app to view all data collected by Eve and control all accessories featuring HomeKit technology.
The Eve Light Switch is now available on Elgato.com and on Amazon.com for $49.95.
