Enjoy the perfect espresso in a shot with Eve Energy serving it up nice and hot

We had to forgo our Italian vacation this year, so we decided pretty pronto to bring some of that Italian passion for life to us instead: we got ourselves a new espresso machine. While we can now serve up a bit of Dolce Vita at home, we’d be able to enjoy it a whole lot sooner were it not for the fact that the machine needs to preheat to serve the perfect espresso...

 

We’ve since found a really neat solution to this issue in the form of Eve Energy – a smart plug that lets us switch our appliances on and off with a tap, using Siri or even automatically. Now while the first of us to crawl out from under the covers is traipsing toward the bathroom, our espresso machine is already wide awake and ready to get brewing – all really flexibly depending on when we set the alarm. 

 

 

Have your espresso machine switch on automatically based on when you wake up 

Our alarm typically goes off at 6:30 am, and a little later on weekends. While the easiest solution would be to have a schedule that runs directly on Eve Energy that turns our espresso machine on and off again at the desired time, it’s much more flexible to get the machine to turn on when you wake up – so it’s still good to go even if you need to get up a bit earlier. 

 

To get it to do this, simply create a shortcut that turns on Eve Energy automatically once you stop your iPhone alarm. 

Open the Eve app and tap Automation > Add Scene > Add Actions > select Eve Energy > tap Power > On > Add > Next > name your scene ("Espresso Machine On") > choose an icon > Done

Open the Shortcuts app and tap Automation followed by the + button on the top right corner > Create Personal Automation > Alarm > Is Snoozed or Is Stopped > Next > Add Action > Apps > choose the Home app 

Tap Control [Your Home] > select Scenes and Accessories > choose the scene you just added > Next > Done > Next. Before you complete the process, make sure to disable "Ask Before Running" (and confirm by tapping Don’t Ask) so that your shortcut runs automatically > Done

And hey presto, you’ll now be able to start the day full of beans!

Hab es ausprobiert. Klappt super. Eine Frage noch. Wie stelle ich ein, dass diese Automatisierung nur durchgeführt wird, wenn ich mich in meinem Home befinde? Nicht, dass der Kaffee kocht, und ich liege im Hotel auf der anderen Seite der Welt.

Hallo Beweis!
Dann müsste die Geschichte noch um eine An/Abwesenheits-Bedingung erweitert werden. Das sollte sich in Kurzbefehle realisieren lassen.
Viele Grüße, Volker
