The Eve Aqua smart water controller has been updated to support the Apple HomeKit over Thread.
The controller connects to a garden hose socket, allowing you to activate your irrigation system via iPhone, Siri or the on-board button. You can also set schedules via the Eve app.
The new Thread support comes with a second-generation controller firmware update.
The latest generation of Eve Aqua supports Bluetooth and Thread and joins the Thread network automatically. Thread makes your smart home network more responsive, more robust and increases its coverage – all you need is a HomePod mini. You can even add Thread support to your latest generation Eve Aqua simply by updating the accessory firmware.
You can find out if Eve Aqua accepts Thread using these instructions. If you don’t already have one, Eve Aqua can be purchased for $ 99.95.
