“The Eve Room is a high-tech indoor sensor, offered by Elgato, that ensures that your home is always kept optimally comfortable as well as consistently clean and free from dangerous and toxic substances.”

“Our homes often provide a breeding ground for a wide variety of substances, visible and not, that are capable of having a detrimental and very serious impact on our health. Some of these substances include paint, certain chemicals and more obvious threats such as mold and smoke. The Eve Room analyzes the indoor environment for these substances and gives you detailed information in the form of graphs.”

“The Elgato Eve Thermo is different; it’s not a smart thermostat in the traditional sense at all. It aims to keep an even temperature throughout your house by managing individual radiators and can be installed with ease, whether you’ve never picked up a spanner or are a master plumber.”

“Most modern radiators already have thermostatic valves to help regulate the temperature of individual rooms. According to the Energy Saving Trust, clever use of these can save up to £165 a year on your fuel bill. That’s not to be sniffed at, and let’s not forget that this also helps the environment by reducing CO2 emissions.”

“The Elgato Eve Thermo is simply the coolest way of managing your radiators, solves a real problem and is a doddle to install.”

Trusted Reviews

“The Elgato system includes Eve Room, Eve Weather, Eve Door & Window, and Eve Energy sensors. Eve Room lets you monitor indoor air quality, temperature, and humidity, all measured by a sensor that analyzes volatile organic compounds (VOC). Eve Weather keeps track of outside temperature, and air pressure; Eve Door & Window lets you monitor whether your doors and/or windows are open or closed, and monitor stats for time and duration; and Eve Energy tells you how much power your appliances are using. All of these products can be controlled with the Elgato app or, thanks to HomeKit, with Siri.”

“Weather nerds rejoice — we now have a way to access and track the weather from anywhere this simple, easy to use white box and associated app is placed. The Eve Weather outdoor weather sensor melds right in with Elgato’s other HomeKit-compatible products, too, letting me check the details of my local microclimate with ease.”

“Setup is super simple. Just like other Eve devices, I connect to the Eve Weather with Bluetooth, taking a picture of the HomeKit code on the side of the device to loop it in with my freely downloadable Eve app.ot forget that this also helps the environment by reducing CO2 emissions.”

“Elgato‘s latest smart home device that lets you control your radiators with Siri is now available to buy. The Eve Thermo attaches to your radiator valve and can be controlled via a remote or accompanying app on your iPhone – sorry Android users.”

“As well as Siri integration, the app allows you to organize your Eve Thermos into groups. For example, you can set the living room as one group and have it at a different temperature to the radiators in the bedrooms, provided you’ve bought multiple devices. You can also create a recurring schedule.”

“So if you’re sick of getting up and down to adjust your heating, the Eve Thermos might save you some effort.”

“Elgato is best known, in some circles at least, for its niche video products. In recent history, however, it’s somewhat reinvented itself as a maker of smart home devices. The company’s Eve range already includes smart plugs, door/window sensors and home/weather monitors, and today it’s being joined by the Eve Thermo.”

“There are plenty of smart heating solutions available in the UK already, but Elgato’s is slightly different. While thermostats rely on a direct link to your boiler, Eve Thermo adjusts temperature at the radiator end.”

“Thanks to this cool little HomeKit gadget from Elgato, I know exactly how much energy my PlayStation 4 uses (79 watts). I also know how much energy is sucked away by my living room lamp (40 watts), my big HDTV (143 watts) and my Apple TV (8 watts).”

“Setup is screamingly easy; I simply plugged the energy switch into a nearby electrical socket, and then plugged in my lamp to mess around with it. There’s a little HomeKit code stickered on the side of the switch that the Eve app scans to add it to the app and HomeKit framework.”

“Ultimately, the Eve Energy Switch and Power Meter has everything I need in a smartplug and more, like a manual button on the gadget itself, a HomeKit connection for when I’m away from my house, and an energy tracker that will let me fine-tune the amount of power I waste over time.”

“The Room sensor is designed to measure the air quality, temperature, and humidity in a given room. It’s about the size of a deck of cards (if a deck was exactly square). Set-up is really very minimal. The first step is to download the app. You will be asked if you want it to work with HomeKit.”

“Eve Room is one of the few devices that you can set and forget. It just does it’s thing and collects data for you to review and you don’t have to do anything with it past its set-up.”

“Having the Eve Room included in our smart objects has been enlightening. The combination of the Eve Room sensor and the Elgato Eve app has been a welcome addition to our home. It was very easy to set-up and has provided valuable information for us and the general health of our home.”

February 22, 2016 – Elgato Eve Room Review

“There are software features yet to come, but I’m giving all four Elegato products my seal of approval as is. That said, the actual ratings on the product pages reflect their current state of usefulness.”

“I didn’t really think I’d use the Eve products much, but they were surprisingly handy. I could tell if my roommate had walked the dogs with the Eve Door, whether it was raining or likely to with the Eve Weather, and I already mentioned accumulating evidence of second-hand smoke with the Room.”

“Via Bluetooth, when I was within the range of the devices, everything was hunky-dory. The nicely rendered Elgato app gathered all the pertinent information, and I was pleased to note that the air quality inside my house was considerably better than I had thought it was.”

February 16, 2016 – Elgato Eve connected-home system review

Jon L. Jacobi

Macworld

“Elgato was one of the first companies to release Bluetooth-enabled HomeKit accessories back in June of 2015, but one of its products, the Eve Energy smart plug, was only made available in Europe. That’s set to change today, with the launch of the U.S. version of the Eve Energy.”

“Eve Energy turns any appliance into a smart appliance, but it also has a useful power monitoring feature that will let you keep an eye on how much power a device is using. Eve connects to an iPhone or iPad via Bluetooth, so there’s no hub or bridge required for communication.”

“We previously reviewed the European version of the Eve Energy and found it to be one of the most useful HomeKit-connected products Elgato makes.”

MacRumors

“Elgato already makes several smart sensors for the home, and today it’s adding the Eve Energy accessory for U.S. customers to its lineup. Eve Energy works similarly to other smart plugs: connect it to the wall socket, then power appliances on and off using your smartphone.”

“If you’re looking to gain new insights on exactly how much energy a certain appliance is using, Eve Energy adds a power meter function to the connected switch setup too. This means you can actually see, not just guess, how much power what you have connected to Eve Energy is using”

“For testing, I have Elgato’s Eve Weather and Eve Room HomeKit sensors, which also rely on Bluetooth, and don’t experience any range issues when on Wi-Fi, which may be thanks to the presence of an Apple TV in the mix.”

Zac Hall

9to5Mac

“Originally released only in a European version, Elgato has brought its Eve Energy Switch & Power Meter to the North American market, rounding out its lineup of HomeKit accessories that debuted with the Eve Room, Eve Weather, and Eve Door & Window sensors.”

“Setting up Eve Energy is about the same as any of the other HomeKit-enabled plugs we’ve looked at — you connect Eve Energy into a wall outlet, and then fire up the Eve app from the App Store, which should discover the device and take you through the standard HomeKit pairing process.”

“Eve Energy fits into an interesting and somewhat appropriate position among the other smart outlets we’ve looked at. Both in terms of features and cost, it sits right in the middle of the very basic $40 iHome SmartPlug and the slightly more sophisticated $60 iDevices Switch.”
