    Works in but not with HomeKit

    • Written by Allan B from Etobicoke

    Yes it is visible in the Home app but that's all. There are no automations for it. I purchased it so I could turn on/off a fan if the room got hot, humid or AQ called for it. A $30 non HomeKit sensor and an online service can do this, which is what I'm using since I returned this device.

    As advertised but too expensive for features or performance

    • Written by ANDREW B from EASTPORT

    The sensors are simple and refined, small, and Homekit devices. A quick check to my HOME screen at night on the macbook and can easily see all the lights (kids bedrooms) and the temps & humidity all at once. The batteries seem to last very long before needing a charge; I even forget about them. However, it is only displaying basic room info and I have $200 in for two of the items. The leaf status for air quality are the disappointment for the price point. These fluctuate from 2 to 5 leaves in my home but there is no idea why. What are they detecting? Also, followed the instructions to reset them to fresh air periodically by putting them outside for a few minutes. It is northern Michigan in winter so the sensor was a little confused and reading impossible numbers until the next power plug in and it got back to reality. It seems that a connected device could provide more info about what is being detected. These are 5-star items at $39.99 just not $99.99.

    Great VOC measurements, nice improvements

    • Written by Joseph L from Chicago

    First off, a big improvement from the first EVE Indoor Air Quality monitor. The rechargeable battery is a nice add. Once again, the build quality and display are quite nice. I bought this primarily for the Air Quality metrics (VOC). Humidity is a nice-to-have, and temperature doesn't really matter to me since my thermostat is quite accurate.

    Easy pairing with the EVE app, and accurate readings so far (I'm only 2 days into ownership, but I'll update this review if I have any reason to question the accuracy). I'd subtract a half star due to the fact that you need to go into the EVE app in order to change the display from Celcius to Fahrenheit, although I'm assuming that this is a change that most people will only need to make once.

    Much improved Eve Room!

    • Written by TK H

    The latest Eve Room from Eve Systems measures and records the air quality (VOC) of a room as well as the temperature and the humidity. It has a nice display in a sleek aluminum body.

    Just as all other Eve products, it took me seconds to scan the code on the device with iPhone's Eve app (free) to register it as a HomeKit device. Now I can see the air quality, the temperature and the humidity on my iPhone. (If you have AppleTV or HomePod, you can access the data remotely.)

    Eve Room has a Micro USB port to charge. One full charge should last for 6+ weeks. This is a huge improvement over the original Eve Room, which needed 3 AA batteries to be replaced every 3 months.

    The display makes it easy to check temperature, humidity, and especially air quality. If I see the air quality decline on the Eve Room display or on my iPhone, it's a good time for me to open a window to get fresh air!
