Ready to be placed anywhere inside or outside your home, Eve Motion enables users to create individual HomeKit automations. By detecting the user’s presence or absence, it will enable or disable power outlets, HVAC systems, lights or any combination thereof. You don’t even need to open an app or speak a Siri command to set your Good Morning scene, light up the Christmas tree in the evening, or turn on the fan during a hot day. Eve Motion is the ninth member of the Elgato Eve family of HomeKit-enabled products, all of which communicate directly with iPhone, iPad and Apple TV, without requiring an additional bridge.
“Motion sensors are an indispensable part of a home automation setup,” said Markus Fest, General Manager of Elgato. “ With no wires attached, Eve Motion is a versatile trigger for a host of unique and creative scenarios."
Eve Motion runs off 2 replaceable AA batteries. It has a 120° field of view and a range of up to nine meters. Eve Motion also has a typical reaction time of two seconds, an IPX3-certified water resistance rating, and a white housing that is free of buttons or displays.
Eve Motion is available now for USD $49.95. You may also be interested in the Elgato Eve Light Switch, the first smart switch with HomeKit support that doesn't require a hub.
