All features of Eve Weather

Eve Weather combines the advantages of all types of weather monitoring solutions to give you insights come rain, wind, sun, or snow. Just like when using an app, you have lightning-fast access to the information you need when you need it – all without you having to share your location with third parties clouded in mystery. A quick glance at Eve Weather, and you know exactly what’s going on with the weather at your location – just like a regular weather station – but as Eve Weather records all its datasets, you can look back in time to see how today stacks up to previous days. And just like many other smart solutions, you get to enjoy a rich visual experience with historical data and trends presented graphically – all without you needing to register or use a cloud service or gateway. It’s because of this unique approach that Eve Weather blew away the jury of the renowned iF Design Award.

Eve Weather supports Bluetooth and Thread, and joins your Thread network automatically. Thread makes your smart home network more responsive, robust, and increases its reach – the only other thing you need is HomePod mini or Apple TV 4K (2nd generation).

 

Read on to learn how to set up and get the most out of Eve Weather.

Set up and location

Eve Weather comes with a CR2450 coin cell battery already fitted, and the accessory ships in hibernation mode so battery life isn’t impacted while it’s on its way to you. To wake up Eve Weather, simply press the button on the back. You’ll then see "HI" on the display, followed by the initial set of measurement results. Launch the Eve app and tap Settings > Add Accessory to include Eve Weather in your smart home setup. Then go to Settings > Accessories > [Eve Weather] > Elevation and check whether the value matches your location’s actual elevation so Eve Weather can provide calibrated air pressure measurements. 

 

Pro tip: If you’ve got yourself a new Eve Weather to replace an existing Eve accessory and you want to migrate your measurements, you can simply use the Eve app. Open the settings menu for Eve Weather and tap Migrate Measurements. The Eve app will then show you a list of accessories whose measurements you can migrate. To get going, simply choose the one you want — just make sure that the existing accessory is still included in your home setup.

While Eve Weather has a display and sensors that are designed to withstand whatever the weather throws at it (temperatures of -18 °C to +55 °C [0 °F to 130 °F], humidity levels of 0% to 100%, air pressure levels of 260 to 1260 mbar [7.7 to 37.2 inHg], and is armed with IPX4 water resistance), you still need to keep a few things in mind when setting up your Eve Weather to avoid false measurements. If you place your accessory in direct sunlight, it’ll heat up the housing and the surface on which you’ve positioned your accessory. You’re better off choosing a well-ventilated spot that’s always in the shade such as the north-facing side of your home. You should also avoid placing Eve Weather too close to the ground — instead, position it ideally 2 meters [6 feet] above ground level. You can even mount your Eve Weather on a tree, although be sure to protect your accessory from direct rain by locating it under something such as a bird house.

Eve Weather in the Eve app 

Just like the display on Eve Weather, the Eve app user interface also shows you a combination of the accessory’s readings.

In the Eve app, tap At A Glance followed by Edit. Tap the star icon next to the Eve Weather entry (the star should turn blue) to see Eve Weather directly when you open the Eve app. The tile displays the current temperature and tells you how this compares with previous daily highs and lows. Beneath that is the humidity level, with the weather trend and air pressure displayed in the third row. 

To edit the detail view of Eve Weather, simply tap Edit and customize the information to suit. If you’re more interested in the humidity level, tap and drag it to the top. And if you always want to know if Eve Weather is using Thread, display the Transport option. 

You can use Numbers or Excel on your iPhone, iPad, or even your Mac/PC to edit the measurements recorded by Eve Weather simply by exporting them. Tap the "i" icon below a graph, select Measurements in the new screen, and tap the sharing icon to access the export function. The export generates an .xls file, which you can also edit in Numbers.

Know what the weather's going to do

Eve Weather uses meteorological rules to forecast whether the weather’s going to change in the next 12 hours. To make this prediction, the accessory considers the local barometric pressure as well as if and how quickly this has changed over the past few hours. It’s a tried-and-tested approach that delivers reliable results throughout the year for most of the time and for most locations. In general terms, the weather trend function works as follows: Eve Weather knows if the barometric pressure is high, medium, or low. Based on the initial reading, the accessory categorizes changes as very strongly increasing, clearly increasing, constant, clearly decreasing, or very strongly decreasing. Eve Weather then takes this trend, i.e. the level of the initial reading and the varying degree of change, and works out if it’s going to turn sunny, the skies will remain clear, or if the skies are going to cloud over, it’s going to rain, or it’s going to turn stormy. The Eve app clearly depicts this via the graph in the Trend section of the Eve Weather detail view. For example, if the curve remains flat at normal barometric pressure (≥1009 ≤1022 hPA), the accessory and app display the cloudy icon; if the curve goes sharply up or down, a sunny or rainy trend is displayed respectively. 

Handy automations

Currently, HomeKit doesn’t notify you about outdoor temperature extremes. However, you can create a rule in the Eve app to get a smart heads-up — such as if the temperature has dropped below freezing overnight — by having your smart lamp glow blue (Eve Flare or Eve Light Strip). The rule will take data from Eve Weather about if a certain temperature has been reached, exceeded, or fallen below and then use this as a trigger to light up your lamp. That way, you’ll be pre-warned as soon as you get up that you’ll need to scrape ice off your car’s windshield or take extra care when cycling on icy paths.

Open the detail view of Eve Weather, tap Automation followed by Add Rule. Turn on the temperature trigger, tap the <= less-than-or-equal-to icon, set the temperature to -1.5 °C (34.7 °F), then tap Add followed by Next.

Now add a time condition. Set the TYPE to DAY EVENT, the RELATION to BEFORE, and the TIME to SUNRISE. This will prevent your light from turning on the evening before or during the night. Tap Add, then Next.

Tap Add Scene > Add Actions and navigate to the room where your warning light is located, then set Power to On and Color to Blue. Following that, tap Next. Name your scene, choose an icon, tap Next, then add a name for your rule.

Eve Weather in the Home app and with Siri

The Home app really is missing another trick with no support for air pressure as a service. Instead, it highlights the other two values recorded by Eve Weather: The temperature and the humidity level. They’re displayed along with the other status indicators on the Home or Rooms tabs, and in the form of a low and high reading if several sensors are present. To display readings that are as meaningful as possible, you can select – at least for the Home tab – which sensor readings you want to see. To do so, simply call up the settings for the accessory by tapping and holding the status indicator, then tapping and holding a service tile. Now tap Status and then choose whether you want the reading to be displayed by toggling the Include in Home Status switch. 

 

The Siri voice commands for Eve Weather are "What’s the temperature like in my [room name]?" or "How warm is it in my [room name]?" and "What’s the humidity level in my [room name]?" or "How damp is it in my [room name]?". If you don’t say the room name, Siri will not ask HomeKit but the Weather app instead.  

Troubleshooting

A soft reset will help if implausible readings do not normalize even after a few days. Simply use a coin to open the battery compartment, remove the battery, then wait 60 seconds before reinserting it. If you continue to experience issues, you can perform a factory reset. To do that, press and hold the reset button for ten seconds until you see "HI" on the display.

Increase the reach of Eve Weather

Add HomePod mini to your home and your Thread-enabled Eve Weather will be able to communicate via Thread – the mesh network that reaches even the farthest corners of your abode. This happens automatically without you needing to configure anything. Simply position a Full Thread Device, such as Eve Energy, as close as possible to your Eve Weather. The Eve Energy accessory will then act as a router node and relay data packets from Eve Weather.

 

To view the structure of your Thread network and see where you can make improvements, simply go to the Settings area of the Eve app and tap Thread Network. Among other things, you’ll be able to tell which node Eve Weather uses to communicate and whether you can further improve the stability and reach of your network and accessories by using an additional router node – such as by adding one more Eve Energy or moving one to a better location.

Hallo,
ist der Eve Weather geeignet um Temperatur und Luftfeuchtigkeit im Gewächshaus zu überwachen, oder ist es dort zu feucht?

Hallo,

Ist es möglich das Display zu deaktivieren? Wenn ich Eve Weather im Aussenbereich montiere und die Werte eh nur in HomeKit oder mit der Eve-App verarbeite/anzeige, würde das laufende Display unnötig Strom verbrauchen ohne eine Funktion zu erfüllen.

Beste Grüße,
Jens

Hi Eve team, I've been investing quite a bit into Eve products in the last 2 years due to your focus on both privacy and -very much- on Matter. Unfortunately I have noticed that your Eve Room and Eve Weather products do not support Matter yet (albeit they do use Thread for communication), but instead integrate using HomeKit.

Are there plans for Eve Room & Weather to support Matter?
If so: would you be able to provide -rough- indication on timeline for this?

Thanks!

Hello Chuck! We appreciate your interest in our upcoming Matter firmware update for Eve Weather (2nd generation) and Eve Room (3rd generation). Eve is committed to provide a superior user experience on all major Matter platforms. The rigorous certification process that the update must therefore undergo affects our ability to provide a specific release date. We understand the value the update holds for our customers and are doing everything in our power to make it available in a timely manner.

As with all updates from HomeKit to Matter, a complete Apple environment with iPhone and Thread Border Router is required, i.e. HomePod mini or HomePod (2nd generation) and/or the Apple TV 4K (2nd generation) or Apple TV 4K (3rd generation, Wi-Fi + Ethernet).

Best regards, Volker

Ich habe nun in die EVE Room investiert und bin an sich ganz zufrieden. Aber warum kann nicht zumindest die EVE App selbst eine Push Benachrichtigung senden, wenn ein Temperaturgrenzwert über/unterschritten wird?
Genau dazu habe ich ja an sich die Raumsensoren, dass ich bei Werteverletzung eine Info erhalte! Nur Lampen steuern macht hier wenig sinn. Zumindest eine Lösung an AppleHome vorbei wäre schön!

Hallo Heinz! HomeKit/Apple bietet keine Benachrichtigungen für Temperatur, Luftfeuchtigkeit oder Luftqualität, deshalb können wir das auch nicht.

Hi, I noticed on the CSA website that Eve Weather has been certified for Matter. Does this mean that out of the box I can connect this device to a 3rd party Matter compliant gateway such as Dirigera?

Hallo,

ich möchte aus optischen Gründen ein (weißes) Eve Weather der ersten Generation zur Überwachung meines Kaminofens installieren. Soweit ich weiß, funken alle anderen Eve-Geräte bei mir mittels Thread. Bremst das alte Eve Weather ohne Threaddie anderen Geräte aus oder stört es sie sogar?

Danke

Ist es möglich den EveWeather nur für den Innenraum zu benutzen?
Oder bezieht sich der Temperatur und Luftfeuchtigkeitsmesser nur auf den Außenbereich?

Hallo Leo! Eve Weather kann auch im Innenraum genutzt werden. Da die Sensoren im Gerät sind, wird vor Ort gemessen. Viele Gruße, Volker

Hi, Just wondering and couldn't find it (yet). If I place an Eve Weather into my Apple Homekit smart home, are those options possible?
1). Turning on the lights (trough Eve Energy, smart bulbs, smart switches) when it's going to be cloudy or start raining (because less sunlight will be there)?
2). Or other smart automations
Reply
Aug 8, 2023
Hello Jurgen! The weather trend is based on air pressure. As this is still not an Apple characteristic, you can't use the app Home from Apple for the automation you want, but the app Eve. Other than that, you can use temperature or humidity in both app automation as a trigger. Please keep in mind that all automation requires a home hub, an Apple TV 4/4K and/or HomePod/mini. Best regards, Volker

Answering Joseph you suggested using the home screen Widgets offered by Apple's own Home app. The Home app in iOS 16.5.1 doesn't offer home screen Widgets that I can find. Our old Eve Weather [running v2.1.2(809)] is simply summarized under "Climate" and requires tapping down: Climate > Temperature > Eve Weather to see it. Has Apple removed Home app widgets? or do I need to changes some settings?

Hello Bob! The Widgets from the app Home have been available since iOS 16 and in the same place. Best regards, Volker

Hi,

Kann man die App dazu bewegen jeden Tag die Messwerte aller sensoren abzufragen, damit diese gespeichert werden und nicht verloren gehen? können die Messwerte vielleicht am apple tv gespeichert werden und an alle anderen Geräte verteilt werden?
Dadurch dass ich mit meinem iphone regelmäßiger die Sensor daten ansehen, habe ich hier eine viel vollständigere Messhistorie als auf meinem iPad. Kann ich die Daten in mein ipad importieren? oder noch besser zwischen den Geräte syncen?
Reply
Aug 4, 2023
Hallo Christoph! Zum Abruf der historischen Daten muss die App Eve im Vordergrund sein, das geht leider nicht anders. Das Synchronisieren zwischen iPhone und iPad ist leider auch nicht möglich. Viele Grüße, Volker

Ich nutze EVE Weather zur Überwachung der Temperatur und vor allem der Luftfeuchte in meinem Zigarren Humidor. Gibt es inzwischen die Möglichkeit eine Nachricht auf das Iphone zu bekommen wenn Werte unter oder Überschritten werden? Mein Büro mit Lightstrips zu pflastern stellt leider keine Option dar. Vielen Dank.

Hallo Marco! Apple bietet leider immer noch keine Benachrichtigungen für Temperatur und Luftfeuchtigkeit, also können wir es auch nicht. Einige Kunden behelfen sich mit Automationen, bei denen eine farbige HomeKit-fähige Lampe bei Über-/ Unterschreitung warnt. Viele Grüße, Volker

Hallo zusammen, nach dem gestrigen Update auf 2.1.3 zeigt die Kachel im Bereich „auf einen Blick“ keine Werte mehr an. Diese können nur noch über das Gerät selbst oder die tiefere Ebene auf der App gelesen werden :( Die Darstellung vor dem Update war deutlich komfortabler…

Hallo, mein neues EveWeather wurde anfänglich erkannt. Das geforderte Update ist fehlgeschlagen. Daraufhin habe ich es nochmal aus meinem Netzwerk genommen und wollte alles neu installieren. Seitdem wird das Gerät überhaupt nicht mehr erkannt (hab schon mehrere Stunden die Batterie raus genommen und mehrfach auf den Reset-Button für mehrere Minuten gedrückt. Woran kann das liegen?

Hallo,
um den richtigen Zeitpunkt zum „hochfahren“ der Heizung zu ermitteln würde ich gerne in kurzen Abständen Messungen der Raumtemperatur aufzeichnen. Kann bei EVE Weather oder ROOM der Messintervall geändert werden?
Auf der Internetseite zum EVE Weather Alle Funktionen ist ein Messprotokoll mit Messungen im 10 Minuten Intervall abgebildet, leider konnte ich in der EVE APP bislang keine Möglichkeit finde Messhäufigkeit zu ändern.

Hi, we have the 2nd gen Eve Weather. How do you turn up the display light on the actual device itself? Sometimes we don’t have our devices near us and we’d like to just look at the weather unit and see it but it’s soooo faint, we can barely see it. Yet, ever ad and picture we see online, it shows the LED screen as very bright. Thanks

Hello, I have an Eve Weather that is approaching 1 year old and this morning it has become unresponsive in both the Apple Home App and the Eve App.
The display just keeps flashing between the temperature measurements and the “HI” message on screen.
I have tried removing the battery which does not fix the issue and a reset does not work either.
Could it be that the battery needs replacing or is this another problem?
Thank you.
