Examples: Timers and Rules

After upgrading the firmware of your Eve accessories you may automate your connected home with timers, and rules entailing location and value triggers. Using timers, you can activate a scene at a certain time, either once-off or repeatedly. Rules with location triggers activate a scene when you reach or leave your home or another location. Rules with value triggers activate a scene once a change in a value of an Eve accessory occurs. Moreover, rules can be refined with conditions.

Value Triggers – An Overview

In addition to numerous improvements, the latest firmware upgrade for your Eve accessories features value triggers, which you can apply to rules for automation. These value triggers include Temperature, Humidity, Air Quality, and Power, among others. In iOS 9.3.x, rules with value triggers exist and operate on the iOS device originally used to create them. By contrast, with iOS 10 and an additional Apple TV 4 running tvOS 10 in your home, rules you create on your iPhone synchronize with Apple TV 4, and triggers exist and operate on your local home network.
