Eve Announces Second-Gen ‘Eve Motion’ with Light Sensor and Thread
Eve Systems has just announced the availability of the second generation of Eve Motion. The new wireless motion sensor with Apple HomeKit adds an integrated light sensor, support for the future-proof mesh networking standard Thread, and a lower price tag.
The new model of Eve Motion is the 14th product in the Eve portfolio to support Thread. All Thread-enabled Eve products will receive free OTA firmware updates so you can use them with other Matter ecosystems like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, or Samsung SmartThings.
