Meet the Elgato Eve Motion Sensor, one of the first wireless motion sensors with HomeKit technology. Elgato’s claim to fame in the home automation arena is their exclusive use of HomeKit, allowing Siri to control your Elgato smart home devices. This newest addition to their product line can control your power outlets, lights and HVAC systems, simply by detecting your presence or absence from the home. It can be positioned inside or outside of the house, whatever your preference and needs may be. Motion sensors are an integral part of the smart home. Come within a certain vicinity of your house, and your entire smart home system can welcome you home. Eve Motion is wireless, allowing for creative placement that fits your needs.
The Features of Eve Motion
Eve Motion has adaptable positioning, and can be positioned inside or outside the home. It features a long battery life thanks to its use of two replaceable AA batteries to run. Ideal for small spaces or spacious rooms, the Eve Motion has an impressive range of up to nine meters and a whopping 120° field of view. Its button-free white housing makes it a sleek addition to your home, with the added bonus of an IPX3-certified water resistance rating. The typical reaction time of Eve Motion is two seconds.
Forget the app – you don’t even need it. The Eve Motion Sensor does not require you to speak to Siri in order to set your Good Morning scene, turn on the lights, the fan, or any number of other home automation products. The ninth member of the Elgato Eve family, Eve Motion communicates directly with your iPhone, Apple TV and iPad – all for a mere $49.95.
Availability and Pricing
The Eve Motion is available to ship via Elgato.com and Amazon, with its appearance in Apple stores worldwide promised soon. Use the free Eve app to control all of your Eve accessories, as well as HomeKit compatible third-party devices.
