Exclusive: Eve Systems Tim Both speak on HomeKit Insider

Cupertino, February 15, 2021

Special guest Tim Both, brand manager Eve Systems, discusses how Thread will enhance HomeKit technology, plus joins in answering listeners' questions.

AppleInsider previously presented how and why the Thread connectivity standard will be a game changer for Apple's HomeKit. But this week we hear what the developers think about it, in our exclusive interview with Eve Systems brand manager Tim Both.

He talks about how Thread was developed with the intention of becoming the connectivity option for smart homes. In addition, we learn about Eve's future plans, including the company's latest updates, and her huge Eve app.

Listen to the interpretation of Both inside Thread or, alternatively, you can read what he has to say in the short transcript of the interview.

Then we have the latest update from Andrew about his smart home pantry. He began preparations for the installation of contact sensors and additional light to illuminate the interior of the pantry when the doors open. He started too thread of images for people to watch for updates.

Listener's questions

David Wages asked us to talk about what data third-party HomeKit applications have access to when you allow access. This is a particularly correct question, as Tim Both intervenes to talk about the privacy restrictions that Apple has to protect users.

David Soboslay also wanted to know if there was any way to change the response that Siri gives when setting a scene. He considers the "scene set" a bit repetitive.

Be sure to send your own questions so we can answer the show in the next episode.
