Eve 4.3 offers quicker access to HomeKit features

Eve is launching Eve 4.3 today. The upgrade of the app that works with all HomeKit-enabled apps from Eve brings quicker access to all of HomeKit’s features, improved customization options, and improvements for the newest members of the Eve family, Eve Cam and Eve Window Guard. 

Apple’s HomeKit is a framework that allows control of compatible home automation devices through iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and Siri. With Eve 4.3, you can touch and hold almost anywhere to unlock the power of context menus such as:

° At a Glance, which allows you to control an accessory, set a scene that it’s part of, and view all accessory details;

° Room Overview, which allows you to instantly toggle all lights in a room and refine room settings in a snap;

° Accessory Details & Types, which allows you to jump back and forth between individual accessories’ details;

° Automation, which allows you to quickly toggle Rules and set Scenes.

Eve 4.3 also introduces a new way to view and manage commands: directly in the accessory’s details view. At the bottom of each accessory’s details, you’ll find a new “Automation” entry that lists all Rules and Scenes that this accessory is a part of. Users can touch and hold new entries, offering a quick way to toggle Rules and set Scenes.
