Talking about HomeKit is about Eve. The German manufacturer has a comprehensive catalog of products that are compatible with HomeKit only, and recently expanded with is a new supplement that will help us avoid damaging our home or our neighbors. The Eve Water Guard is a water leak detector that can save us over the head. We've tried it and this is our idea.
Very efficient and convenient
Having a leak detector is so useful that it's hard to understand why there isn't one (or several) in the whole house. It is a very simple tool that contains a large unit to be connected to (including adapter plugs from different countries), and a cord to absorb moisture in the event of a leak. This cord is about 2 meters long, so we can stretch it to take a wider area. The cord is covered with a cloth that will absorb moisture in case of filtering, passing it to the main base which will cause the alarm to go off.
If we need longer cable lengths, we can buy additional units, two meters each, and connect them with each other until the desired expansion is covered. With Eve we can extend the rope up to 150 meters, which is a real treat. With one machine you can go, this way, cover the entire kitchen to find water leaks in any appliance used in the room: washing machine, dishwasher, refrigerator… 100dB audible alarm and bright red light will let the water reach the area covered by the detector, in addition to the relevant notification that will access your device compatible with HomeKit.
Integration with HomeKit
Due to integration with HomeKit we have ensured that the preparation process is very simple, that the privacy of our data is guaranteed, and that interacting with all of our devices with iOS, tvOS and macOS is compatible without the need to install any kind of skill, and we should not wait for translation into our language.. Of course, we have to keep in mind that this New Year's Eve Guard needs to be connected to the center of our home's accessories, and that it has Bluetooth connectivity, so its size is limited.
Eva Expand, extending access to your HomeKit Eve devices
If for us this Water Monitoring is too far from the point of adoption, we should get it repeater Eve introduced this past summer and allows you to place long-range Bluetooth accessories from the center, because this multiplier will be connected via WiFi to the central unit and Bluetooth to the available access. We have an update on our blog and you can reach us at the link at the top of this section.
Once repaired, we are simply waiting for the leak to be notified, or rather, we should never notify. As always when we talk about Eve we are obliged to highlight its free use, compatible with all the devices you have added at home
Water leaks are very common, and although they cannot be easily avoided, we can avoid their consequences if we see soon that they have happened. This is where the leak detector can save you a lot of money and headaches because it will immediately notify you of the small risk, preventing it from being a disaster. Easy to configure, automated, without user intervention, and completely inexpensive care, due to its direct connection with the plug, make this Eve Water Guard a an essential accessory in any home to avoid serious misconduct. Its price is € 79.95 on Amazon (link)
