Eve Systems has announced that Eve Light Strip is the first product to support HomeKit Adaptive Lighting. Additionally, the company says iOS 14 brings new features to Eve Cam including Face Recognition, Activity Zones, and access to the camera's live stream on Apple TV.

Introduced with iOS 14, Adaptive Lighting enables smart lamps to automatically adjust the color temperature throughout the day, with warm colors in the morning, cooler ones at midday, and a reduced amount of blue light at night. A firmware update that brings support for Adaptive Lighting to Eve Light Strip is available for free via the Eve App.

"Eve products are all about simplicity and privacy. By leveraging HomeKit, we combine these attributes with an ever-expanding set of powerful features", says Jerome Gackel, CEO, Eve Systems. "iOS 14 takes Eve accessories to yet another level, adding advanced functionality to Eve Cam and turning Eve Light Strip into the first lighting solution to support the amazing Adaptive Lighting mode."

Adaptive Lighting
With Adaptive Lighting activated, Eve Light Strip lets users start their day with warm colors, help them stay alert and focused midday with cooler ones, and let them wind down at night by removing blue light – without users having to even lift a finger. Color temperature adjustment happens automatically, each time you turn it on, and with gentle transitions. The feature requires a HomePod or an Apple TV (4th generation or later) as a home hub.

HomeKit Secure Video
In conjunction with iOS 14 and a supported iCloud storage plan, Eve Cam is now able to detect faces, focus surveillance on user-defined activity zones and send its live stream to the Apple TV. Face Recognition is done locally by the Home Hub and can either rely on data from connected users' Photos libraries or create its own gallery by saving new faces together with a user-assigned name. By narrowing the camera's focus onto activity zones, a person or animal will only trigger notifications or recordings when they move within that area, e.g. by entering through the door. An Apple TV with tvOS 14 is now able to display Eve Cam's live stream in the media player's Control Center, enabling parents to check on their sleeping baby from the comfort of their couch.

Pricing & Availability
Eve Light Strip is available at a price of USD $79.95, and a 6.5 ft extension will cost USD $49.95. Eve Cam can be purchased for USD $149.95.
