Eve Aqua, for the unknown, is a smart water controller that attaches to any outdoor faucet, adding smart features and irrigation controls to sprinklers and hoses.

Eve has been working to update all of its Bluetooth-compatible accessories with Thread technology, and several of the devices, including Eve Aqua, have a Thread-compatible chipset inside that can be activated through a firmware update.

Being a battery-powered device, Eve Aqua is a Minimal Thread device that does not relay packets, but mesh network Thread technology generally offers a wide range and connectivity enhancements when paired with a Thread-capable device such as the HomePod mini .

Eve has three Thread-compatible devices, including Eve Door & Window and Eve Weather, with a smart Thread-powered Eve Energy card coming to the US in late April. Eve Energy, as a continuously connected device, is a Full Thread device that allows a wide range of accessories such as Eve Aqua when placed between Eve Aqua and a “HomePod mini”.

The new firmware update can be downloaded via the Eve application. Eve Aqua is available from Amazon for $ 80.
