Finally a UK HomeKit Socket – Elgato Eve Energy

[UPDATE – Check out our Review of the Elgato Eve Energy]

Elgato have released the first UK plug-in smart home socket to supports Apple HomeKit. The Eve Energy is a switch and power meter that uses Bluetooth Low Energy.

Eve Energy has been carefully designed to make your home smarter, not more complicated. Energy efficient Bluetooth Smart technology ensures reliable operation without impacting your already crowded Wi-Fi setup.

And since Eve Energy doesn’t need to constantly interfere with your other wireless devices, you’ll actually be able to consume less energy, not more.

Supported Devices: Eve requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 9.1 or later. HomeKit requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 8.1 or later. Controlling HomeKit-enabled accessories away from home requires an Apple TV (3rd generation or later) with Apple TV software 7.0 or later and an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 8.1 or later. Note: iPad 2 is not supported.

  1. Finally, been waiting for one of these in order replace demo as they wont be supporting homekit. One question… can you set up a rule to switch this on and off at a particular time? I can’t tell if the Home App supports this, and not sure about the elgato app either.
    Also the spec is not 100%… AppleTV 4 is the only AppleTV that supports Homekit if you run iOS 10

  2. The home app supports time rules via the automation option. It looks like the Elgato website has incorrect details regarding the support of Apple TV & iOS, from what I have read must be Apple 4 TV and the I device needs to be running iOS 10 to act as a base station.

  3. Very interesting for our product launch in Feb/March 2017
