Update: It would seem that Cyberport may have inadvertently jumped the gun on the announcement, as the listing has now been removed.
Earlier this year, German company Eve, announced the Eve Cam, one of the first cameras to come with HomeKit Secure Video (HSV) built-in, which is no real surprise, considering the company focusses solely on HomeKit products. The company have said that shipping will start at the end of May, however, the camera has already surfaced on cyberport.de f0r preorder, with delivery due to start on June 18th.

The advantage of having a dedicated HSV camera is obvious: recordings don’t end up on any Eve Systems servers, but are encrypted by your home hub within your home and only then uploaded to Apple’s iCloud.
The 1080p resolution, combined with night vision of up to 5m should provide a sharp picture at any time of the day or night. In addition to two-way communication via a built-in loudspeaker and a microphone, the Eve Cam also has an infrared motion sensor.
The new addition to the now impressive Eve Systems product range can now be pre-ordered from Cyberport for €149.95. From June 18th.
Thanks to Yannic at Smartapfel.de for the find.
