Smart Plug with Matter and Power Metering


Munich, March 21, 2024 - Eve Systems, one of the leading providers of smart home devices and part of ABB, is now offering Eve Energy, a smart plug with power metering, in Switzerland. Eve Energy is the first smart plug with metering in Switzerland based on Matter-over-Thread, which makes it particularly user-friendly, secure and easy to set up. The technology offers benefits such as plug-and-play interoperability and platform independence. In households that rely on Apple Home, Eve Energy can measure the power consumption of devices and calculate a cost forecast in conjunction with the Eve app for iPhone and iPad.

The Swiss version of Eve Energy has a form factor specifically designed for type J sockets and is now available to order from specialist retailers for CHF 49.95.


"Smart sockets are essential for intelligent energy management in the home," says Jerome Gackel, CEO of Eve. "With Thread, Matter, a sophisticated design and the acclaimed Eve app for iPhone and iPad, our best-selling Eve Energy is the ultimate choice, whether energy efficiency, comfort or privacy are the focus."

App & Voice Control, Automation, Energy Monitoring

With Eve Energy, lamps or appliances can be switched on and off at the touch of a finger, by voice command or directly via the built-in switch. Using the Home Hub as the control center of the smart home, the smart socket can even be controlled while on the move or via automation: For example, Eve Energy switches on at a certain time when a sensor such as Eve Motion detects movement or as soon as someone arrives home. Communication works completely locally and without any cloud or registration, so that the users' privacy is always protected. On the Apple Home platform via the Eve app for iPhone and iPad and on the Samsung SmartThings platform via SmartThings Energy, Eve Energy helps to increase energy efficiency by monitoring power consumption and saving energy costs.

About Thread

Thread technology is specifically developed for smart home applications to improve connectivity between devices. Thread creates a mesh network, within which lights, thermostats, outlets, sensors, and more can also talk to each other free of the constraint of having to go through a bridge. If a single device fails, the data packets are simply relayed to the next in the mesh. In short: the network becomes more robust with every additional Thread device.
Mains-powered Thread devices that are always on, such as Eve Energy, Eve Energy Outlet and Eve Light Switch, can act as router nodes within the Thread network and relay data packets. So, the more of these Full Thread Devices are present in the network, the more stable and greater its reach becomes. Learn more
