    Nice Features - Hampered Only By Range

    This sensor does what it says it will: Give you accurate readings on the air in whatever room you put it in. Setup was simple. Elgato's products look excellent as well.

    The only drawback to their line is that their range is limited due to the bluetooth connection (as other reviewers have also called out). I did find myself replacing the batteries in one of my sensors after only a couple of months. But the others are fine so I'm not entirely sure what happened there.

    Good for wine cellar

    This is a nice little product that mounted easily in my fathers wine cellar. He wanted to have constant readings of the temp where he keeps his wine. He has a manual old school temp gauge in there, but has no way to track the data and record it. This product does the trick. You do not need to be technical to use it, and the app pairs easily. The product does use batteries so you will have to replace them eventually, but that is OK. We don't care much about the humidity setting, but it is nice that it offers it.

    Very limited use

    I bought two. I wish I hadn't.

    You can't get a notification if the air quality has dropped. That's due to HomeKit's limitations and may improve someday.

    The device does not send nor the iPhone doesn't ask for the data in the background. That mean that if you want to check the statistics, you have to be within BT2.0's reach, open the app, do some voodoo and wait for ages it to download the data.

    Then you get to see the graphs that are really uninformative. If the air quality gets poor, the app doesn't help you in any way to understand what's wrong. They claim to measure specific things, but you cannot get those readings out.

    At the moment neither of my devices seem to respond. They give a reading, but it doesn't update and the download is stuck. Not sure if the batteries have died or what. No way to tell by looking the app. So I quess I've lost a good chunk of the measurements.

    I really can't recommend the product to anyone.

    does what it's supposed to

    - very quick setup, took maybe 15 minute
    - put in batteries, connected to phone with the app
    - does what it's supposed to do, I have thermometer in the room and they match almost exactly
    - says the air quality in my room is excellent. hooray!

    Great for Baby's Room

    Our baby's room monitor came with a temp alert sensor, which failed 95% of the time. We would get a 2am alert the baby's room was 50F so we would rush upstairs thinking his thermostat the heat had failed, only to see it was fine. Or we'd get an alert it was 88F, same issue. So I wanted a reliable room sensor I could see from my phone and check the temp anytime so I could turn off the temp control on the baby monitor and not rush upstairs in the middle of the night worried. Ahhh, at last something that works. It has been spot on and perfect. I have had this for over a month and love love love it. I have a separate control device to check temp and humidity in the room but it stationary so I check those and then check Eve, they match every time. Baby monitor, matches 5% of the time. Great job Elgato!!! I'm buying more for other areas of my home and for my RV.

    Disappointing and buggy.

    I was very excited to get one of these, but it's been downhill ever since. The unit does not connect to wifi, but instead uses bluetooth. That makes setting it up for sharing quite difficult, thanks to a weird level of security (not sure how secure my home's indoor temperature must be). But worst of all, after three months the unit simply went on the fritz, suggesting that the indoor air of my home has VOC levels that are 30 times higher than what's considered safe under US standards. I changed the batteries, but that didn't fix it. So I borrowed an air monitor from work, just to double-check, and everything was normal. Elgato hasn't responded to my help requests, either directly or via twitter. Not a great use of my $90, I'd recommend avoiding this product.

    Works Great, Discrete Device and Nice App

    I installed Eve Room and Eve Weather about two weeks ago. They look nice, are discretely small, and come boxed with quality-brand batteries.

    The enclosed pamphlet is brief but clear on initial steps: install batteries and get the Elgato app from the App Store. The app guides you through each step to connect the device, and Room connected with my iPhone 6S perfectly the first time. Probably as a result of not paying attention to the app’s guidance the second time, Weather appeared to pair but the app did not show its data. After deleting it via the app’s Setup page, and a do-over, it worked. The app’s Setup page has additional options, implementable later, that are described in a manual obtainable from the Elgato support website (the app has a link at the bottom of its Setup page).

    The Elgato app looks good and displays a nice summary of the device(s) readings as its home page. Upon opening the app, it does take a bit of time (sometimes it seemed almost instantaneous, other times maybe half a minute) to update with the latest readings. Guessing, the app does not “poll” the devices in the background so they don’t waste battery life transmitting for no reason. But the app’s home page doesn’t say when the displayed measurements were last acquired, so it could be improved by displaying such info (or notice that more-current data is being acquired) there. Detail pages, when selecting a particular datum, do display such info so maybe this enhancement can readily be done in an app update.

    In sum, Eve Room and Eve Weather work as advertised, with very good connection distance and no glitches for me at least. I am next going to try my Apple TV 3 with Eve, which should allow me to access Eve measurement data when away from home.

    Connects via Bluetooth (NOT WIFI)

    This product connects to your iPhone via bluetooth. It does not link to your home's wifi.
