SAN FRANCISCO – November 2, 2016 – Elgato today announced the new Eve Motion, the first wireless motion sensor with HomeKit technology. Ready to be placed anywhere inside or outside your home, Eve Motion enables users to create individual HomeKit automations. By detecting the user’s presence or absence, it will enable or disable power outlets, HVAC systems, lights or any combination thereof. 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 immediately for USD $49.95.
“Motion sensors are an indispensable part of a home automation setup,” said 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 for long battery life and flexible positioning. 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.
The Eve family of HomeKit-enabled accessories gathers data on air quality, temperature, humidity, air pressure, energy consumption, and more. Gain insights that help you improve your comfort, and make your home a smarter place. Use the free Eve app to view all data collected by Eve and control all accessories featuring HomeKit technology.
Eve Motion is now available on Elgato.com and on Amazon.com for $49.95. It will be available in Apple stores worldwide and on Apple.com soon. All Eve accessories as well as HomeKit compatible third party products are easily controlled using the Eve app, available as a free download from the App Store.
