Eve Shutter Switch

Eve Shutter Switch – The Convenience of Smart Shading

Schedules to automate your roller shutter and adapt it to your daily routine are stored on Eve Shutter Switch so the accessory can get on with its job independently of any home hub, iPhone, or internet connection. The Eve app’s Adaptive Shading function automatically darkens rooms during the day according to the position of the sun. The hyperlocal programming of Eve Shutter Switch based on your location and the orientation of your window happens automatically. Of course, with a tap of your finger on the switch itself, in the app or a "Hey Siri..." command, you can control your shutter as required.



Eve Flare

Eve Flare – Beautiful Light Moods For Any Space, Inside or Out

Eve Flare features wireless charging and six hours of untethered illumination. Thanks to its durable casing with IP65 water resistance and a carry-and-hang handle Eve Flare is built to go from your bedroom to your balcony to your garden and beyond. Activating your desired ambiance is effortless. Just use the app or talk to Siri whenever the mood strikes. Or set a timer, automation or scene, and have Eve Flare come to life by itself, courtesy of your home hub. Explore ready-made shades such as scarlet, capri, and jade, or handpick and fine-tune your very own colors. And, a quick swipe or voice command gets the brightness just right.


Thread – Robust Smart Home, With a Big Future Ahead

Alongside Bluetooth, Eve Shutter Switch and Eve Flare support Thread. Thread technology makes your smart home network more responsive and robust, and increases its reach – the only other thing you need is HomePod (2nd gen), HomePod mini or Apple TV 4K (2nd gen, 3rd gen 128 GB). As a router node, Eve Shutter Switch relays other Thread accessories’ data packets and enhances the stability and reach of your smart home. Thread is also a pillar of Matter – the smart home standard of the future. Thread-enabled Eve Shutter Switch and Eve Flare will receive free Matter firmware updates in the future. Learn more 


Privacy by design – What Happens at Home, Stays at Home

Eve accessories and the Eve app are designed to safeguard your personal data. All data is fully encrypted and only transferred directly between your Eve accessory and iPhone, iPad or home hub. Strong encryption verification during each connection attempt ensures that only you hold the key to your home. Your data will never be analyzed or used for advertising purposes. Neither Apple nor Eve can see any of the information your accessories generate.
