New Eve Accessories Announced at IFA 2018, Berlin

Eve Systems is expanding its market-leading connected home product family, Eve, to include a highly requested European version of Eve Light Switch; a premium LED accent lighting solution, Eve Light Strip, and a full-featured triple-socket, Eve Power Strip. Like all products in the Eve range, these new accessories are based on Apple’s HomeKit platform and feature excellent performance along with groundbreaking features.

Eve Light Switch: Versatile HomeKit-enabled switch for intelligent lighting control
In addition to conventional wall switch control, Eve Light Switch offers the convenience of toggling a light via iPhone, Siri, HomeKit rules, or on-device schedules set in the Eve App – even integrating Eve Light Switch into a traditional multi-switch setup is possible. Eve Light Switch replaces common European switches of virtually any type and comes in a classic white design. Optionally, use third party switch rockers and frames to match your existing installation’s finish.

Eve Light Strip: LED accent lighting for a breathtaking atmosphere
Eve Light Strip follows the portable HomeKit-enabled mood lamp Eve Flare, launched in May. Like Eve Flare, Eve Light Strip sets the ambience via a selection of pre-installed lighting scenes, and also enables you to create your own colors. Thanks to superior triple-diode architecture, the LEDs provide optimum brightness in full-spectrum white and color, and an especially high output of 1800 lumens across a length of 2m. Eve Light Strip uses Wi-Fi technology (2.4 GHz 802.11b/g/n) and, like all Eve products, does not require a bridge. Eve Light Strip can be extended to a length of up to 10m.

Eve Power Strip: Intelligent triple-socket power strip provides safe and discrete control of up to three devices
Eve Power Strip enables control of up to three devices powered by a single outlet. Comprised of elegant black housing encompassed by a solid aluminum frame, Eve Power Strip is both visually captivating and built to last, while sophisticated surge protection safeguards your electrical installation.

Pricing and Availability: Eve Light Switch (99.95 Euro) and Eve Light Strip (79.95 Euro) will be available at a later date via Eve Systems, Amazon, and selected retailers. Pricing and availability of Eve Power Strip will be communicated at a later date.
