CES 2020: Eve introduces Eve Cam with HomeKit Secure Video and announces ship date for Eve Water Guard


LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - JANUARY 7, 2020 – Eve Systems today announced the revolutionary Eve Cam, the first ever indoor camera made exclusively for Apple HomeKit Secure Video, built from the ground up to keep your data secure. With HomeKit Secure Video, activity detected by a compatible camera like Eve Cam is privately analyzed by your home hub (Apple TV or HomePod) using on device intelligence to determine if people or pets are present. When important activity is detected, you and anyone you share your HomeKit Home with will receive a rich notification that lets you view the clip right from the iPhone Lock Screen. Recorded video is available to view for ten days from the Home app. It’s securely stored for free in supported iCloud accounts and doesn’t count against your storage limit. 


Home security footage is highly personal, that’s why choosing the right indoor camera is so important”, says Jerome Gackel, CEO, Eve Systems. “Eve Cam is the first camera designed exclusively for Apple HomeKit Secure Video, enabling you to keep a close eye on your home while protecting the privacy of your personal space at any time.”
