For this week’s giveaway, we’ve teamed up with Eve to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a set of smart home products that includes the Eve Energy Strip, Eve Light Strip, and a Light Strip Extender.
Eve’s Energy Strip, priced at $99, is its newest product, offering up three HomeKit-connected outlets that can be controlled individually or all at once so you can make non-HomeKit products compatible with HomeKit. The three outlets are generously spaced so even bulky power supplies won’t obstruct a second socket, plus there’s a long 6.3-foot cable.
The Energy Strip connects to HomeKit over WiFi, and you can control whatever’s plugged into it through the Eve app, the Home app, or Siri voice commands. In addition to providing HomeKit controls, the Energy Strip lets you monitor total power consumption and track costs for anything that’s plugged in, so you can monitor and shut down appliances that are draining energy.
Physical buttons let you turn accessories off if the app isn’t available, and Eve has included protection against power surges, overcurrent, and overvoltage. With the HomeKit integration, connected devices can be controlled with other HomeKit products or automated to work on a specific schedule.
The Eve Light Strip is also one of Eve’s newer products, and it’s one of the brightest HomeKit-enabled LED strips on the market with 1,800 lumens and support for full-spectrum white shades along with millions of colors.
Priced at $80, the Light Strip provides enough light to replace a standard room lamp at its brightest levels. Each Light Strip is 6.6 feet long, but it can be cut at one-foot intervals for use in smaller areas or extended to 32.8 feet using 6.6 foot extension strips, available for $50.
Like all Eve products, the Eve Light Strip is HomeKit compatible and it can be controlled using Siri voice commands, the Home app, and the Eve app. Using HomeKit it can be automated or added into scenes with other HomeKit products.
We have a kit featuring an Eve Energy Strip, Eve Light Strip, and Light Strip Extender for two MacRumors readers.
