Eve announce their 2nd Gen Air Quality Monitor ‘Eve Room’

Eve, formerly known as Elgato Eve, have announced the imminent release of their latest product, the 2nd gen version of ‘Eve Room’. If you’re familiar with the 1st gen Eve Room, you will know that it measures temperature, humidity, and air quality (VOCs). The Eve Room 2nd Gen is available to pre-order from Evehome.com and will be released on 12th September. This is what Eve have to say about their new device;

Compact and crafted to perfection. Equipped with all-new precision sensor technology. Furnished with a customizable display encompassed by a sleek aluminum body. With Eve Room, your indoor conditions are just a glance away. And keeping your home healthy is that much simpler.


See conditions at a glance.
Temperature, humidity, or air quality – capacitive touch controls let you put your preference front and center. And with a high-contrast e-ink display you can read from any angle, checking it is easier than ever.

Set the scene for wellbeing.
Scenes enable multiple accessories to work in concert. Have an air purifier turn on automatically when air quality deteriorates. Or have a humidifier switch on before moisture levels drop too low. Coupled with connected appliances, Eve Room makes indoor climate regulation a breeze.

Break free from wires.
With six weeks of power – and then some – from a single charge via any standard USB port, you’re never left scrambling for batteries or proprietary adapters. When power is low, you simply connect Eve Room to your iPhone charger or any other USB power supply. And even if you don’t, you still benefit from regular temperature and humidity updates for a while longer.

Command on demand.
Set scenes in a flash via Siri, your Control Center, or Apple Watch. Easily engage accessories using the Home app on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. And to see concise records, gain insights, and enjoy full control of your connected home, look no further than the Eve app.

Safe as houses.
Eve accessories are exclusively HomeKit-enabled. Even when accessing your home remotely via your home hub, data is end-to-end encrypted and stored on your iPhone or iPad. Superior privacy, advanced security, and absolute peace of mind – it’s all here.

Truly smart.
Equipped with Bluetooth low energy technology, Eve accessories ensure reliable operation independently of bridges. Setup is quick and easy. Energy consumption is minimal. And accessory response time is snappy.

Straight out of the box, Eve accessories work with your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple Watch. Your Apple TV or iPad will serve as a home hub, seamlessly automating your accessories and keeping you connected while out and about.
