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.
