The Elgato Eve Light Switch is definitely a light switch to get excited about. Why? It is the very first HomeKit-enabled smart light switch to hit the market! Awesome, yes, but what exactly does this mean for you? In short, it means being able to enjoy a fully integrated lighting system that you can control through Siri and even connect with other HomeKit-enabled products! That means, for example, you could flip on your lights in the morning and have this automatically trigger your smart, HomeKit-enabled coffee pot to begin a brew so it is waiting for you when you get downstairs. Or you could program it so that when you turn off the lights, your TV automatically turns off. The possibilities are near endless! Isn’t technology cool?
With Eve Light Switch, experience the comfort of connected lighting. Switch your lights on and off using Siri, or with a quick tap on your iPhone.
Eve Light Switch transforms any single or multi-bulb setup into an intelligent lighting system, so you can use your existing bulbs regardless of their shape, size or color.
Create scenes to control Eve Light Switch and other HomeKit-enabled accessories with a single command. Leverage the power of automation and have your lighting synchronize with your routine.
Use Siri on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to control Eve Light Switch with just your voice. Have more than one room equipped with Eve Light Switch? Group them in the Eve app and say one sentence to control all your lights, without lifting a finger or roaming your home.
Eve Light Switch connects directly to your iPhone or iPad using Bluetooth low energy technology, without the need for a hub, gateway bridge, or complicated WiFi configuration.
Want to illuminate your home from afar? Control Eve Light Switch even if you are away. All you need is an Apple TV, and you’re ready to remotely switch your lights on and off, launch your favorite scene, and check the status of your home at a glance.
HomeKit technology provides advanced security with end-to-end encryption and authentication between Eve and your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
