Eve Light Strip update adds support for HomeKit Adaptive Lighting

Cupertino, October 28, 2020

Eve Systems has announced the release of an update to the Eve Light Strip that adds support for HomeKit Adaptive Lighting. The latest HomeKit feature, introduced back at WWDC 2020, automatically adjusts color temperature for connected lights throughout the day.

"Eve products are all about simplicity and privacy. By leveraging HomeKit, we combine these attributes with an ever-expanding set of powerful features," says Jerome Gackel, CEO, Eve Systems. "iOS 14 takes Eve accessories to yet another level, adding advanced functionality to Eve Cam and turning Eve Light Strip into the first lighting solution to support the amazing Adaptive Lighting mode."

Available now through the Eve for HomeKit app, the Eve Light Strip can be updated in minutes over the air with just a few taps. Once updated, a new Adaptive Lighting control will be shown alongside color adjustments over in Apple's Home app.

By selecting Adaptive Lighting, the Eve Light Strip will automatically display warmer white tones in the morning to help ease owners into the day and then shift to cooler shades of white to aid with focus as the day progresses. In the evening, the Eve Light Strip will shift back to warmer tones to calm the mind and promote rest.

In addition to the Eve Light Strip upgrade, Eve's security camera, the Eve Cam, also gained some additional HomeKit features with the release of iOS 14 last month. Through HomeKit Secure Video, Eve Cam owners can create Activity Zones that exclude specific areas within the camera's view, preventing nuisance notifications. The Eve Cam also works with iOS 14’s Face Recognition feature, which adds names to camera notifications by leveraging a users Photo Library from the Photos app.

Eve's HomeKit products are available now at various retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, and Apple, as well as through evehome.com. The Eve Light Strip retails for $ 79.95 for a 6.6-foot starter strip, with additional extensions also available starting at $ 49.95. The Eve Cam retails for $ 149.95 for a single camera, and HomeKit Secure Video features require an active iCloud storage subscription starting at $ 2.99 a month.
