Eve 2.8 will then automatically switch between your homes according to your proximity to them. Rules with location triggers will be assigned directly to the respective home upon their creation. Moreover, the process of setting up accessories with location-specific properties – such as air pressure (Eve Weather) or energy costs (Eve Energy) – is more streamlined.

Hey Siri, what’s new?

It is only since iOS 10 that Apple offers the Home app as an interface for HomeKit-enabled accessories – an alternative to apps developed by other manufacturers, including Elgato’s Eve app. Another interface to HomeKit is Siri, a simple and interactive tool that enables you to control your connected home with voice commands via your iPhone, iPad, fourth-generation Apple TV, and Apple Watch.
Using the Eve app, you have access to all Apple-supported HomeKit data such as temperature, humidity, and on/off status, as well as additional information not available via Siri — air pressure, recent energy usage, historical data, and more.
