Eve Systems, has announced its new third generation Eve Aqua smart irrigation controller with support for Apple HomeKit and Thread.

The Eve Aqua smart water controller activates your irrigation system via your iPhone, Siri, or the onboard button, and shuts off automatically. Set schedules quickly in the Eve app, and let Eve Aqua take care of watering your garden and patio plants – automatically without requiring an internet connection, a bridge, or a gateway. Eve Aqua is also a part of Eve’s world-leading portfolio of products that support HomeKit over Thread, leveraging a HomePod mini or the new Apple TV 4K to make your smart home more responsive and robust.

The redesigned Eve Aqua features a space gray body and matte black front. It replaces previous onboard mechanisms with a brass faucet connector and magnetic valve to ensure improved durability, better leak protection, and near-silent operation.

“Eve Aqua looks gorgeous and makes smart gardening easy, safe and joyful,” says Jerome Gackel, CEO, Eve Systems. “Thread eliminates the need for a digital bridge, while the brass faucet adapter ensures a rock-solid physical connection. And of course, our beautiful Eve app brings it all together, making scheduling, and monitoring consumption, a breeze.”

Enjoy Your Garden
Eve Aqua is compatible with all popular hose systems and multi-channel water distributors such as Gardena – plus it offers 7 watering periods. It converts your standard outdoor faucet into a smart water outlet, allowing you to keep your grass green and your plants happy and healthy – even while you’re away.

Ready for the Smart Home of the Future
The new generation of Eve Aqua is one of 14 products in the Eve portfolio to support Thread, a technology that is a pillar of Matter - the smart home standard of the future. Thread-enabled Eve products – including Eve Aqua - will receive free over-the-air firmware updates so you can use them with other Matter ecosystems like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, or Samsung SmartThings. This technology makes your smart home faster, more reliable, and increases its reach: Simply position a Full Thread Device, such as Eve Energy, as close as possible to your Eve Aqua. Eve Energy will then act as a router and relay data packets from Eve Aqua. This way, Eve Aqua is always in reach – anywhere in your garden.
