Talk or tap to control your connected devices
Eve Systems today introduced the 4th generation of its HomeKit smart plug Eve Energy, featuring support for HomeKit over Thread. As a main-powered Thread accessory that is always on, Eve Energy can take over the essential role as a router node within a Thread network and relay other accessories’ data packages. The more devices of this type that are present on the network, the more stable and greater its reach becomes.
“Packing Thread router functionality into a premium quality, small-footprint smart plug, Eve Energy is the quintessential HomeKit accessory,” said Jerome Gackel, CEO of Eve Systems. “Not only does it offer endless automation possibilities, but it also delivers an ultra-robust network to ensure that your schedules and timers work, any time and any place.”
Talk or tap to control your home
Eve Energy enables control over lights and appliances through a simple tap or Siri command. Users can effortlessly set up schedules that put their appliances on autopilot, turning lamps and many other devices on and off independently of an iPhone or internet connection. The Eve app also keeps watch of the energy consumption and calculates energy costs for appliances based on a specific electricity rate.
With a HomePod or the brand new Apple TV 4K as a home hub, users can also access their accessories on the go, control them automatically based on whether somebody is leaving or arriving home, and add automations that work with other HomeKit-enabled accessories.
Eve Energy supports Thread and Bluetooth with the ability to join a Thread network automatically. Equipped with Apple HomeKit technology and UL certification, Eve Energy offers outstanding ease of use and advanced security. Eve Energy is quick and easy to set up, with no bridge required.
Welcome to the smart home of the future – today

Eve is a member of Zigbee Alliance and Thread Group. For further information on Thread, CHIP and Thread compatibility of Eve accessories visit the Eve blog.
