      Water on Demand!

      The Eve Aqua is the most recently addition to my Eve family of smart products. I was looking for a product like this for sometime because of the nature of my cu The Eve Aqua is the most recently addition to my Eve family of smart products. I was looking for a product like this for sometime because of the nature of my current irrigation system. I have the Rachio for the main Irrigation valves, which works quite well for sprinkler automation, but there is a large area of my yard where I do not have any PVC or Poly hose laid, therefore its all manual watering. The Eve Aqua allowed me to take a simple garden hose and $15 lawn watering attachment from any hardware store and turn it into a fully automated watering system, including "on demand" via Siri on my smart phone or using the Eve App. The product is extremely easy to use, like most Eve products. I loved the voice activation, but in the times where you leave your Smart Phone inside the house, you can press the on/off button on the front of the unit which is nice. There are some nice safety measures- like Child Lock and also an auto shut-off to prevent over watering. You can schedule the times you want the water to turn on, similar to a smart irrigation system (I set mine to go 10 min after the main system ends). The App works similar to other Eve products and tracks your usage. Much needed in the CA drought years. The unit is BlueTooth like other Eve products I have used. What does this mean? It means that you have to be in BT range for the command to be issued to the unit, OR you need an AppleTV that uses HomeKit for the automation. For me, I already had an AppleTV, so that was no problem. The unit was really installed quick easily, comes with batteries (simple thing, but nice gesture) and seems to be well made. The product functions perfectly, and the only real "ding" or "con" I could say is that it doesn't have some kind locking mech, so if your hose is on the street and accessible, someone could come and take it off the hose and steal it. Not sure what Elgato could have done with that, other than adding some kinda suitcase style lock to it. I would not really consider this to be any kinda reason to pass this product up. I am very happy to have found this - another great product in a Smart home family of toys!

      Automated garden watering, no hassles

      As a happy owner of a couple other Eve Homekit products, I thought this would be the perfect solution to simplify my garden-watering, and so far it has been. As a happy owner of a couple other Eve Homekit products, I thought this would be the perfect solution to simplify my garden-watering, and so far it has been. Great packaging and an easy unboxing experience. The included batteries are a classy touch. I found it quite easy to set up a timed watering via the app, and so far it has been quite reliable. I've activated the Eve Aqua once or twice via Siri, but I expect that the vast majority of my usage will be automated/timed; it's just so much easier. In my opinion, an underrated feature of this device is the physical on/off switch on the device itself. This is key from any Homekit product, because there are times when you'll need to override the smart technology and won't have Siri available. I don't own an Apple TV, so I'm using the Aqua's direct bluetooth connection only, but haven't had problems with range/connectivity like a few other reviewers. The biggest improvement I'd like to see (and this could be achieved via software update) is full capabilities to schedule/automate via the Homekit app. The Eve app is great, but it would be nice to use one fewer app when setting up and maintaining my smart home. I don't have any prior expertise in other sprinkler/irrigation technology, but this has been perfect for my purposes.
