HomeKit-Enabled Eve Energy Strip Now Available for Purchase

by

Eve, known for its line of HomeKit-compatible smart products, today announced the launch of its latest HomeKit accessory, the Eve Energy Strip.

First shown off at CES, the Eve Energy Strip has three HomeKit-connected outlets that can be controlled individually or all at once, so you can make three non-HomeKit products HomeKit-compatible.

Eve Energy Strip, which connects to a ‌HomeKit‌ setup over WiFi, is ideal for any non-HomeKit product, allowing whatever is plugged into it to be controlled using the Home app, the Eve app, or Siri voice commands.

Along with adding ‌HomeKit‌ controls to existing accessories, Eve Energy Strip is able to track total power consumption and projected cost for running an accessory.

Eve Energy Strip features a black matte body with an aluminum frame and a 6.3-foot cable. Eve says the outlets were designed at an optimum angle and with generous spacing so even bulky power supplies can be plugged in without obstructing a second socket.

Three white LED buttons at the end of the Energy Strip display the socket's power status and allow for manually turning an accessory on or off. Eve Energy is equipped with protection against power surges, overcurrent, and overvoltage.

The Eve Energy Strip can be purchased from the Eve website, from Amazon, or from Best Buy.

$100 for a 3 outlet power strip? o_O No thanks. I'd rather buy 3 smart outlets, that can be used in 3 different locations.

I also vote for iDevices Switch. Pretty happy with their reliability. I have about 10 of them now. Their outdoor switch is also very good, and I enjoy seeing power consumption from all their switches.

I honestly can't think of three plugged-in things in my house that I want to control smartly...certainly not three things sitting next to each other.

Actually I thought of one as I typed this. I've got an Airport Express connected to an old receiver in my basement, with speakers wired to the back yard. currently if I want to listen to music outside I need to go down to the basement and turn on said receiver. A smart plug would enable me to do that whilst sitting on my tush. Except I really don't see the need to spend money on it.

Serious question, does anyone actually have a situation where a 3 outlet strip is enough? This has never been the case for me, and this product just seems like a gimmick.
