MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Bundle of 'Eve' HomeKit Products From Elgato

by

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Elgato to give away the full line of Elgato Eve HomeKit-connected products, including the Eve Room, Eve Weather, Eve Energy, and Eve Door & Window, which perform a range of functions from monitoring a room to motion sensing to turning "dumb" products smart.


Eve Room, designed for use inside a home, can tell you the temperature and humidity in the room, plus it can measure air quality. A sensor inside analyzes volatile organic compounds and it will let you know when air quality declines because of cooking, smoking, cleaning products, and more.

Eve Weather is similar to Eve Room, but meant to be used outside. It doesn't include air monitoring capabilities, but it will give you accurate temperature and humidity readings outdoors and over time. It's IPX3 water resistant, so it can stand up to the elements.

Eve Energy is a smart outlet that allows whatever's plugged in to be controlled via Siri. It also measures the amount of energy being consumed, so it's ideal for products that can potentially use a lot of power, like space heaters or fans.

The final product, Eve Door & Window, monitors whether a door or window is open or closed and how long it was open or closed. It's ideal for making sure a door in the house is secure when away, and it also enables motion-based HomeKit features.

The Eve line of devices connect to your iPhone or iPad via Bluetooth and can be controlled through the Elgato Eve app. No hub is required and in addition to being able to be controlled through the Eve app, the products are also compatible with Siri and can be accessed in other HomeKit apps and when away from home with an Apple TV. With the Eve products, you can ask Siri a long list of questions like "What's the temperature in the living room?" or "Is the fan on?" or "Is the door open?"

I reviewed the Elgato Eve lineup when the products first became available last year. I had problems with them because HomeKit was still in the early stages of development, but since then, there have been a number of under-the-hood changes that have improved the functionality of HomeKit products. The Bluetooth-enabled Eve Weather and Eve Room are now some of my most reliable HomeKit devices.

The full line of Eve products can be purchased from Amazon. The Eve Energy is priced at $50, the Eve Door & Window is $40, the Eve Room is $80, and the Eve Weather is $50. One MacRumors reader will be able to get all four products for free through our giveaway. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address.

Nice video, but these products don't really seem useful. Lots of information, but not so interesting. Like, do you really care how many times your windows have been openend? :rolleyes: I think people will use these things once or twice and then they won't bother because it doesn't really add anything useful to your life.

I know this is for US residents only, no big deal, but then it's kinda odd to show a picture with a (mainland) European plug.;)

The value is largely informational in the US market. However, in the European market the radiator control is the stuff of dreams. Radiators in homes, typically, have no central control beyond turning the furnace on/off and twisting a fairly simplistic knob on the radiator. The (knob) TRVs are simple individual thermostats and don't really do a good job of regulating the room temperature, don't operate based upon intelligent or predictive metrics, or perform based upon time-of-day or weather conditions. Nest and Ecobee really hit this sweet spot in the US where AC is king, but in europe a combination of room thermostats and intelligent control valves can make a huge difference in terms of cost and comfort. I see the window/door open device as more of a security tool.

Unfortunately I don't have an Eve Energy on hand to take my own images and all of Elgato's imagery depicts both the U.S. and European versions, so I didn't have much of a choice. Included in the giveaway is the U.S. version of Eve Energy, which is relatively new.
