Eve Announces Matter Firmware Update for Three Smart Home Products

Posted November 3, 2022 at 3:09pm by iClarified
Eve has announced an upcoming free firmware update will bring Matter support to three of its Thread-enabled smart home products. Matter is a new smart home standard being adopted by over 280 companies, including Amazon, Apple, Comcast, Google, Signify and SmartThings. Apple introduced support for Matter to iOS with the launch of iOS 16.1.

The latest models of the smart plug Eve Energy (U.S. & Canada, Europe, U.K., and Australia), the contact sensor Eve Door & Window and the motion sensor Eve Motion have completed Matter certification. Starting December 12, iPhone users can upgrade those devices for free in the Eve app to grant every family member local and direct access from their preferred smartphone or voice assistant.

The entire lineup of now 14 Thread-enabled Eve devices will receive free Matter firmware updates over time. Availability of Matter-certified Eve products in retail will start in first quarter of 2023. The Eve app, which has been available exclusively for iOS, will be complemented by a sister version for Android in the same period.

"The next era of the smart home is here, and we can now invite users across all major ecosystems to the Eve experience," says Jerome Gackel, CEO of Eve Systems. "No matter what phone or assistant you are controlling your Eve product from, it will always deliver 100% privacy, a superior set of software features, and unparalleled ease of installation."

"Eve is a great example of how smart home device makers can build helpful, innovative Matter devices, that deliver great out of box experiences with Android Fast Pair, and Google Home" said Karen Yao, Director of Product Management for Google Home."As one of our earliest partners, Eve has been instrumental in helping us ensure all the tools in the Google Home Developer Center can help developers deliver those seamless user experiences."

Eve Door & Window - $31.95 ($8 off)
