Eve today released a new version of Eve’s HomeKit app that adds a convenient way to interrupt watering programs for Eve Aqua. Version 4.4 of the Eve app for HomeKit now includes a pre-built abbreviation that users can install with a single tap to check the weather and cancel future watering times on demand through Siri.
Suspend your watering schedule according to the rain forecast – Eve 4.4 brings the completely modernized integration of Eve Aqua with shortcuts and is easier to use than ever. Install the built-in Siri shortcut right from the Eve app and simply ask Siri or launch the shortcut from the Shortcuts app or the View Today widget to automatically check the weather forecast and suspend the watering schedule if necessary.
When the shortcut is launched, users will be given an option to pause watering schedules for the current day, or the rest of the day, plus the next. The options launch a set of suspend scenes according to your desired preferences and, once added, should also be available to be launched through a tap without Siri, if preferred.Source: Eva
In addition to the new shortcut, version 4.4 is based on contextual actions that came with version 4.3, which are invoked by a long press. New actions include the ability to navigate to graphics, lists, and views of the camera, as well as the ability to copy and paste your favorite colors from one HomeKit lighting accessory to another.
- Touch and hold the Eve app icon on your home screen to start accessing a specific home.
- Quickly navigate to graphical details, event lists, and full-screen room views.
- Copy and paste the colors. Yes, you read that: now you can use that color from your favorite light and apply it to any other HomeKit activated light in an instant – either an individual light or all the lights in a room. And if you want to have a color at hand forever, simply add it to your color favorites right from the context menu.
Finally, the latest update includes improvements to the HomePass app integration and many other minor changes, including a quick way to jump to a specific home via the Haptic Touch icon on Eve on the iOS device’s home screen.
The Eve for HomeKit 4.4 update and app are now available as a free download in the App Store. Further details on the update can be found on the Eve Blog at evehome.com.
