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.

HomeKit is deeply integrated into iOS, and offers additional stability and features that benefit the Eve app and Elgato HomeKit-enabled accessories.

With streamlined usability and polished aesthetics, Eve 2.5 gives you even greater control of your home. Eve 2.5 introduces At a Glance view, which you can customize to display accessory information that’s most relevant to you.

With the release of iOS 10, Apple has taken the next big step in further enhancing its operating system for iPhone and iPad.

In addition, Apple now offers users another way to control their connected home – with the app called Home.
