The Most Popular Indoor Sensor for HomeKit Gets Even Better

Second Generation of Eve Room Adds E-Ink Display And Built-in Battery 

San Francisco, CA – January 8, 2018 – Elgato today announced the second generation of Eve Room, an indoor sensor with HomeKit technology that tracks air quality, temperature and humidity. Eve Room adds an E-Ink display, a built-in battery that can be charged from any USB power source, and an elegant aluminum housing with chamfered edges. Eve Room retains all the features of its predecessor. And like all Eve products, the sensor works right out of the box, eliminating the need to spend extra on a bridge device or starter pack. Eve Room will be available in March 2018 for USD $99.95.

“The new Eve Room is another example of Elgato taking HomeKit accessories to the next level,” said Markus Fest, CEO of Elgato. “The combination of advanced sensor technology and fully wireless operation with an E-Ink display and a stunning, sleek enclosure truly is a leap forward in connected home sensors.”
