New: Elgato Eve 2.7

Update: What’s New in Version 2.7.1
This version of Eve addresses an issue that could lead to unexpected behavior when using older versions of iOS 10. It also still includes all of the new features and improvements of Eve 2.7: Personalize your At a Glance view: you can now rearrange your favorite accessories. Improved At a Glance interaction: dive into details via a long tap or using 3D Touch on supported devices. Personalize your Scenes: choose from a new selection of beautifully crafted icons, and opt to hide scenes that don’t require manual activation. Improved scene management: scenes you’ve created through a rule or timer are now easily identifiable and automatically tucked away. Improved data export: sharing history data from your accessory’s measurements view now conveniently generates an Excel file.

Hey Siri, what’s new?

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.

Timers explained

Timers explained

Beginning with version 1.5, Eve supports all HomeKit-based triggers (location, value, time) and conditions. The simplest type of automation with HomeKit involves timers. At a user-defined day and time, the timer triggers a prebuilt scene, such as turning on the kitchen lights via Eve Energy. Timers can be set to fire up once or on repeating basis, e.g., every day at 7 a.m. This post explains how to use timers.
