LAS VEGAS, NV - JANUARY 4, 2023 – Eve Systems, pioneers of the Matter-over-Thread smart home standard, are announcing out-of-the-box Matter-certified devices at CES 2023 - including Eve Door and Window, Eve Energy and Eve Motion. The devices will be the first-of-their-kind by offering Matter technology without the need for an over-the-air firmware update, delivering plug-and-play interoperability and platform independence. Matter will enable the three devices to work with all four major smart home platforms, including Apple Home, Google Home, Amazon Alexa and Samsung SmartThings. The Matter-certified Eve Door and Window, Eve Energy and Eve Motion will be available from evehome.com and Amazon on March 28th, starting at $39.95 (US).
“A fast-mover on Matter, Eve was among the first to offer free over-the-air Matter updates for existing devices,” says Jerome Gackel, CEO of Eve Systems. “Now, Eve will be one of the first to offer Matter right out of the box, delivering on the new standard's promise to finally bring simplicity, reliability, interoperability and security to your smart home.”

Thread technology is specifically developed for smart home applications to improve connectivity between products. Now, HomeKit devices can communicate not only using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth but also using Thread. The big difference with this technology is that Thread creates a mesh network. Within this, lights, thermostats, outlets, sensors, and more can also talk to each other free of the constraint of having to go through a central hub, such as a bridge. That’s because a Thread network doesn’t need one. If a single device fails, the data packets are simply relayed to the next in the mesh. Learn more

Eve does not operate a manufacturer cloud, enabling a smart home that is 100% private. Eve does not harvest your personal data by forcing you to set up an account or registering your products. All communication is fully encrypted and only transferred directly between your Eve product and your smartphone or home hub. Your data will never be analyzed or used for advertising purposes - because it simply isn’t accessible to anyone but you.
