Eve Announces Matter Updates for Eve Energy, Eve Motion and Eve Door & Window

Eve Systems today announced an upcoming firmware update for three of its devices, with the new firmware set to add Matter integration. The latest models of the Eve Energy, Eve Motion, and Eve Door and Window devices will receive Matter firmware updates on December 12.

Eve says that Matter certification has been completed for these three products, and they will receive firmware updates through the Eve app. With Matter support, each person in a household will be able to access Eve products from their preferred smartphone or voice assistant.

Eve says that all 14 of its Thread-enabled Eve devices will get free Matter firmware updates over time, and Matter-certified Eve products will be available for sale starting in the first quarter of 2023.

The Eve app has to date been available exclusively for iOS devices, but there is an Android version in the works that will launch in early 2023.

Matter is a new smart home standard that is meant to improve interoperability between smart home devices, allowing them to work across multiple smart home platforms.

I don't get this obsession with smart homes, especially by having lots of cameras connected to god knows what servers, recording you 24/7, same with the microphones.
I'll always purposely keep my house "dumb"
You've clearly never been in a smart house. Neither have most people because they think Siri or Alexa control counts as smart.

In MY house I simply never switch lights on. They come on at a 50% level depending on outside light levels (so earlier when it's cloudy) then fully on just before sunset. They dim when I leave a room, then go back to full strength when I return. The blinds open or close depending on whether it's hot (keep the sun out in the day, col the house at night) or cold (let the sun in during the day, keep the warm in at night). When I leave various things automatically switch off (lamps, TV, etc) while others (mainly cameras) switch on; these all then toggle to the reverse state when I return.

It honestly feels ridiculous when I go to someone else's house and have to manually control lightbulbs or blinds, like I'm living in the 19th century.

Now I will be the first to admit that Apple (and the rest of the IoT ecosystem) make setting up such a system and debugging it a massive PITA. The tools are garbage, the SW is riddled with bugs. But you can put together something that works adequately and it's actually really convenient.

But then, I don't know, people are just weird. Most of the people I know will pay $1000 for things I consider ephemeral and trivial (eg upgrading some aspect of a holiday) while not paying that same amount to improve their home in a way that brings delight every day. People will put up with broken plumbing, or a flickering light that bugs them EVERY DAY OF THEIR LIVES rather than spend a little to fix it. They vastly prioritize complaining over fixing.
So who am I to understand the human mind?

I have eve westher and it’s been working fine for years ??‍♂️ . Main downside to eve products in the past was that they were only Bluetooth and not WiFi so slow. Also big for their switches and expensive compared to many.

A smart home should not require any interaction with a voice assistant. It is smart if it can predict future behavior

I’ve got the Eve Energy smart plug. Thread has been fantastic, very responsive. I’ve been waiting on adding shades and a bunch more light switches/dimmers for good thread devices. I think the great thing about Matter finally coming out is that companies won’t have to make multiple versions of products to work with the different smart homes. It should give us more options.
