Elgato Expands HomeKit Line to Outdoor Products

SYDNEY, Australia – 31 May, 2018 – Elgato today announced that the smart water controller Eve Aqua will be available in Australia and New Zealand from July, with pre-orders starting immediately. The portable LED lamp Eve Flare is also available from Monday 25 June, currently only in Europe. HomeKit enabled, wireless, water resistant, and accessible from an iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Siri, Eve Aqua and Eve Flare are two great gadgets that bring comfort to outdoor living spaces.

“Making your garden or patio shine is easy with Eve Flare. Find a spot, open the Eve App, pick the perfect shade and enjoy hours and hours of soothing light,” says Ina Hirsch, Director Marketing, Elgato. “Meanwhile, Eve Aqua keeps your lawn and garden green without you having to lift a finger. Just tell Siri to start watering or set schedules for automatic irrigation – Eve Aqua will take care of the timing, the amount, and automatic shutoff. A fully autonomous device, Eve Aqua is perfect for keeping your plants watered while you’re away on vacation.”

Eve Aqua – Smart Water Controller with HomeKit Technology, Schedules & Usage Metre

Eve Aqua converts your outdoor faucet into an intelligent water outlet. Activate your sprinkler via your iPhone, Siri, or the onboard button, and let it shut off automatically. Automate your irrigation system by creating fully autonomous schedules in the Eve app. And, when connected to a home hub, you can access Eve Aqua even while on holiday- so that you can easily increase your watering duration, or suspend your schedule altogether. What’s more, you can track your water consumption based on your irrigation system’s flow rate, directly in the Eve app. Eve Aqua is UV and water resistant, so you can leave it connected all season.
