Elgato offers Eve Motion, the first wireless motion sensor with Apple HomeKit technology. Ready to be placed anywhere inside or outside your home, Eve Motion enables users to create individual HomeKit automation routines. For example, by detecting a person’s presence or absence, it can enable or disable power outlets, HVAC systems, lights, or any combination of devices.
You don’t even need to open an app or speak a Siri command to set your Good Morning scene, light up the Christmas tree in the evening, or turn on the fan during a hot day. Eve Motion is the ninth member of the Elgato Eve family of HomeKit-enabled products, all of which communicate directly with iPhone, iPad and Apple TV, without requiring an additional bridge. Eve Motion is available for $49.95.
“Motion sensors are an indispensable part of a home automation setup,” notes Markus Fest, general manager of Elgato. “With no wires attached, Eve Motion is a versatile trigger for a host of unique and creative scenarios.”
Eve Motion runs off two replaceable AA batteries. Thanks to a large 120° field of view and a range of up to nine meters, you can even use it in spacious rooms. It has a typical reaction time of two seconds, an IPX3-certified water resistance rating, and comes in a sleek white housing that is free of buttons or displays.
Want your shades lowered? Do it in seconds from a smartphone. Not sure if you locked the door when you left the house or left the garage door open? Again, it’s as easy as pressing a button on your smartphone.
