Earlier this month, Eve Systems’ new feature-rich indoor camera Eve Cam with Apple HomeKit Secure Video became available for pre-order and now, the company is rolling out a major update for its iOS app that brings loads of improvements for the newest members of the Eve family, Eve Cam, and Eve Window Guard.
Eve’s latest iOS app version 4.3 lets users touch and hold almost anywhere to unlock the power of context menus and quickly access all of HomeKit’s great new features.
With ‘At a Glance,’ users can quickly control an accessory, set a scene that it’s part of, and view all accessory details, whereas ‘Room Overview’ lets users instantly toggle all lights in a room.
The update also introduces a new way to view and manage your automations. At the bottom of each accessory’s details, you will find a new “Automation” entry that lists all Rules and Scenes that this accessory is a part of. You can simply touch and hold new entries to quickly toggle Rules and set Scenes.
As with every release, we’ve worked on all the small details that make Eve special. Just to name a few:
Home Colors: In addition to the already available custom icons, you can now assign a color to each Home in the General Settings
More Icons: We’ve added a selection of icons to the app to better represent you devices, including new icons for lights and appliances.
Full support for Eve Window Guard: Eve 4.3 brings full support for Eve Window Guard, including Tilt Detection Calibration and Rule creation based on tampering attempts.
Improved support for Eve Cam: Since you can use Eve Cam as a fully featured motion sensor even when all video features are turned off, the At a Glance tile now displays the motion status when Eve Cam is in Detect Activity mode.
The update is now available as a free download in the App Store at the following link.
