Take full advantage of Adaptive Lighting

Thanks to HomeKit Adaptive Lighting introduced with iOS 14, set Eve Light Strip to automatically adjust the color temperature throughout the day. Read on to learn how to turn on Adaptive Lighting, and discover the advantages of using Adaptive Lighting based on our three example rooms.

 
 
 
 

Wake up to warm colors, stay alert and focused midday with cooler ones, and wind down at night by removing blue light. Maximize your comfort and productivity – each time you turn it on, and gently self-adjusting as the sun moves across the sky. 
 

Adaptive Lighting can be enabled exclusively using the Home app. All you need is iOS/iPadOS 14 on your iPhone/iPad and a home hub such as Apple TV with tvOS 14 or HomePod with HomePod software version 14. The firmware update for Eve Light Strip to support Adaptive Lighting is available in the Eve app.

 

Enabling Adaptive Lighting

 

Simply long press the Eve Light Strip tile, then tap the top left color icon – that’s it! Adaptive Lighting will remain active until you choose a different color using Siri, app, or via an automation.

A perfectly lit home office

With Adaptive Lighting, while you’re concentrating on the task at hand, Eve Light Strip glows to suit the time of day. Save yourself from tired eyes and a throbbing head all because you were sitting at a poorly lit desk working at your computer or straining to read documents.

 

All you need to do is attach Eve Light Strip to your bookshelf or file cabinet. Thanks to the dedicated warm and cold white LEDs and ultra-bright, perfectly tuned light output, Eve Light Strip will bathe your home office in a natural, shadow-free light.

 

A perfectly lit living room

No matter when, the living room is a great place to spend time. If you switch on the light during the day, you’ll want it to boost the sunlight; but when it comes to the evening and it’s time to kick back, you’ll want to dim the color temperature for a relaxing ambience. With Adaptive Lighting, Eve Light Strip can glow ultra bright or super subtle to suit the time of day.

 

A perfectly lit hallway

Adaptive Lighting is perfect for those areas of your home that get little or no daylight – something that’s often the case with the hallway. A really slick solution is to combine Eve Light Strip with a motion sensor such as Eve Motion or the one built in to Eve Cam. Your lighting will then turn on for a set time if motion is detected – and with Adaptive Lighting, you can say goodbye to being blinded at night or having to stumble your way across a dimly lit hallway during the day. That’s because the light always turns on with a color temperature to suit the time of day.

 

Enabling Adaptive Lighting via the Eve app

There’s a little trick that will let you use Adaptive Lighting via the Eve app. Watch the video to learn how to set it up.

Auch bei mir ändert sich leider nicht die Lichtfarbe, trotz über die Home-App ausgewählter Einstellung.
Mein HomePod läuft in der Version 14.1 - ich habe alle Geräte bereits neu gestartet.

Hallo Markus! Die Farbtemperatur ändert sich langsam im Laufe des Tages, nicht schlagartig. Ich sehe einen größeren Anteil warm-weiß und rot am Abend zum Beispiel ganz deutlich, anders als um den Mittag mit einem höheren Blau-Anteil. Du kannst Dich auch gern direkt bei mir melden unter [email protected]

Stimmt es das ein verlängerter Lightstrip an max. Helligkeit je einzelne LED einbüsst. Also das ein 4m Lightstrip die selbe max. Leistungsaufnahme hat wie ein 2m Lightstrip?

Hallo Thomas! Der Wert Lumen/Meter sinkt bei Verwendung von Extensions:
1m = 900 lm
2m = 1800 lm (900 lm / m)
4m = 1800 lm (450 lm / m)
6m = 1800 lm (300 lm / m)
10m = 1800 lm (180 lm / m)
Viele Grüße, Volker

How long is the strip? I want just 2m to go around the back of my TV for an alcove. I may want a second strip for my hall

Hello Dominic,
the Strip is 2 meters. Extensions each 2 meters are available, max ist 10 meter on one Eve Light Strip, so 4 extensions. Best regards, Volker

Bei mir ändert sich leider nicht die Lichtfarbe, trotz über die Home-App ausgewählter Einstellung. Meine Lightstrip hat seine Farbtemperatur im Vergleich zu heute Nachmittag (16 Uhr) nicht verändert. Habe sämtliche Geräte schon neugestartet und den Strip zurückgesetzt. Genutzt wird ein Apple TV 4K als Steuerzentrale.

Hallo Jan! Du hast dich ja auch schon im Support gemeldet…
Das Apple TV 4K muss mit tvOS 14.0.2 arbeiten, dann klappt das auch. Ich habe eine ähnliche Ausstattung und zwei Eve Light Strips. Viele Grüße, Volker
