Eve Systems (https://www.evehome.com/) is expanding its connected home product family, Eve, to include: an European version of Eve Light Switch; a premium LED accent lighting solution, Eve Light Strip; and a triple-socket, Eve Power Strip.
Like all products in the Eve range, these new accessories are based on Apple’s HomeKit. Eve Systems unveils Eve Light Switch, Eve Light Strip, and Eve Power Strip at IFA 2018 in hall 6.2, booth 104. HomeKit is a framework that allows control of compatible home automation devices through iOS and Siri.
In addition to conventional wall switch control, the Eve Light Switch offers the convenience of toggling a light via iPhone, Siri, HomeKit rules, or on-device schedules set in the Eve App – even integrating Eve Light Switch into a traditional multi-switch setup is possible.
Eve Light Switch replaces common European switches of virtually any type and comes in a classic white design. Optionally, use third-party switch rockers and frames to match your existing installation’s finish.
Eve Light Strip follows the portable HomeKit-enabled mood lamp Eve Flare, launched in May. Like Eve Flare, Eve Light Strip sets the ambience via a selection of pre-installed lighting scenes, and also enables you to create your own colors. Thanks to its triple-diode architecture, the LEDs provide optimum brightness in full-spectrum white and color, and an especially high output of 1800 lumens across a length of 2m. Eve Light Strip uses Wi-Fi technology (2.4 GHz 802.11b/g/n) and, like all Eve products, does not require a bridge. Eve Light Strip can be extended to a length of up to 10m.
The Eve Power Strip enables control of up to three devices powered by a single outlet. Comprised of a black housing encompassed by a solid aluminum frame, Eve Power Strip provides surge protection to safeguard your electrical installation.
Smart: The Eve App provides a total consumption measurement for cost projection, and Wi-Fi connectivity (2.4 GHz 802.11b/g/n) enables individual or simultaneous device switching without latency. In addition, on-device schedules can be created and managed in the Eve App.
The Eve Light Switch (99.95 Euro) and Eve Light Strip (US $79.95) will be available at a later date via Eve Systems, Amazon, and selected retailers. Pricing and availability of Eve Power Strip will be announced at a later date.
