During the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June this year, Apple unveiled its HomeKit advancements scheduled to launch this fall, when iOS 11 goes public. In this post we’ll explain how you, as an Eve user, may benefit from the many enhancements.
The greenhouse effect is well known to anyone who has entered his or her greenhouse (or car for that matter) amidst a blazing sun: interiors heat up considerably more than their exterior surroundings. The reason being that the energy of the sun’s rays heats the soil and plants within the greenhouse – plus the structure of the greenhouse itself – but fails to escape due to the heat-retaining design of the greenhouse. In this tutorial, we’ll show you exactly how to automatically cool a greenhouse with Eve Degree and a fan connected to Eve Energy.
A healthy indoor climate is one in which temperature and humidity levels are conducive to ensuring your comfort and, more importantly, your wellbeing. Maintaining a healthy temperature in a room is easily achieved by setting a thermostat to anywhere between 18 and 22 degrees. By contrast, ensuring healthy humidity levels traditionally entails constant monitoring, activation, and deactivation of a humidifier. Fortunately, with the help of Eve Degree and Eve Energy, an inexpensive humidifier ($30) can easily be automated to regulate humidity levels without your constant attention. In this tutorial, we’ll show you exactly how to set it up.
