Eve Launches Matter-Ready Eve Light Switch

Eve today announced the official launch of its updated HomeKit-enabled Eve Light Switch in the United States, with the new accessory now available for purchase.

eve switch
Eve's Light Switch is the 15th Eve product to support the upcoming Matter smart home standard that is expected to launch later this year. Matter is designed to allow products from different smart home manufacturers like Apple and Google to interact with one another, something that is not possible at the current time.

Thread support is also available, and with other Thread-enabled products, the Eve Light Switch serves as a router node to enhance the Thread mesh network for improved connectivity with other Thread devices.

The third-generation Eve Light Switch supports rooms with three-way switches, and it adds support for connecting lights to a smart home network without having to change bulbs. Eve says that it is simple to install the Light Switch, and there is an instructional video available.

With HomeKit integration, the Eve Light Switch can be controlled through the Home app, the Eve app, or with Siri voice commands, plus it can be used to access lights when away from home with a Home hub that includes the HomePod or the Apple TV.

The Eve Light Switch can be purchased from the Eve website or from Amazon for $50.

So that someone in some other country can decide how bright your lights should be. I recently shopped for an astronomical switch and made it a point to stay away from bluetooth, wifi, or cloud-controllable devices.
You should read up on Matter before making such an misinformed comment. They work locally. Matter devices will not need the internet to work.

Also, for the record I have Lutron Caseta throughout my house and would never go back to regular light switches. You’re missing out
Same here. 100% reliable, great range, instant response.

What happens if they stop updating/supporting the app?
Lutron has been around for decades. They support homes, businesses, and enterprise lighting designs. They aren't going anywhere. It also works without internet access so if for some reason they stop supporting their hub with security updates I'll block it from the internet and only allow local traffic.

Keep in mind that these switches require a neutral wire.

Many love the Caseta switches from Lutron because that is not required.

Becomes a Brickswitch.
Nope. They also work as manual switches.

Well they won’t be deciding how bright they are, since this doesn’t even have dimming functionality at $50. Crazy.
