Following an announcement last year and launch in Europe, Eve Systems today released the portable LED lamp Eve Flare in the United States and Canada. Similar to Hue Go, Eve Flare lets you pick up and easily move the lamp around the house -- or to outdoor locations thanks to IP65 water resistance -- to bring light wherever you go.

Eve Flare is compatible with Apple HomeKit and offers six hours of battery powered light. When the battery runs down, you can recharge Eve Flare easily thanks to an included wireless charging base.

“Wherever you need a pop of light, it is easy with Eve Flare. Find a spot, open the Eve App, pick the perfect shade and enjoy hours and hours of soothing light,” says Ina Hirsch, Director of Marketing. “As with all Eve products, there’s no bridge required so Eve Flare is built to go from your bedroom to your balcony to your garden and beyond.”

The lamp allows you to choose from pre-made lighting shades or create your own custom color scenes, and does not require a bridge to work with ‌HomeKit‌. Thanks to ‌HomeKit‌ support, you can include Eve Flare in your existing scenes and automations to turn the light on/off when you arrive/leave home, activate a scene via Siri, and more.

Eve Systems is continuing its rebranding from Elgato by focusing solely on its Eve line of ‌HomeKit‌ products, a move that was announced last summer. After that news, Eve Systems announced a new power strip, light strip, and light switch; and also updated the Eve Room in the fall. All of these products are compatible with ‌HomeKit‌.

Eve Flare is priced at $99.95 and available to purchase today on Eve's website or on Amazon.

But I don't need or want this. It's an overpriced lamp that only lasts for 6 hours. I want HomeKit on things that are useful to me. See how that works?
Nope, if you've ever complained about anything, you're required by law to purchase everything not subject to that complaint. Thems the rules! :eek:

I expect every single person who comments on other threads with "No Homekit? No buy." to pick up one of these.

That's weird how you somehow know their intention.
Maybe I'm just extra intuitive. (:

I believe there's a difference between coming into a thread and saying, "You know, I have been looking for a product like this that allows me to control my X, but I wish it had Homekit compatibility," and, as I have seen almost verbatim many, many times, "No Homekit, no buy."

You've been around a long time and your posts are always worth my time. The paragraph you wrote in response to me is an example of the former. The latter, I consider more trolling than anything.

Alas, we disagree. That's okay. There's one thing we do agree on: WeMo light switches. It make so much sense to me that the brains be in the light switch where I can use the app, my voice, or my finger or elbow. I am awaiting their three-way switches to finish out our house. We have, I think, 3 more switches to do, and a couple of Kasa (TP-LINK) three way switches to replace with Belkin, and then every light will be able to be controlled via voice. And then, like you, its on to blinds.
