Elgato unveils HomeKit-compatible smart devices for the connected home

Ahead of Worldwide Developers Conference which kicks off next Monday with a keynote, accessory maker Elgato has launched several smart devices for the connected home built on Apple’s HomeKit platform that it previewed at CES 2015. These accessories use Bluetooth Low Energy and a special iOS app so they’re battery-friendly and fully controllable through your iPhone.

As first noted by German blog iFun.de, the company’s smart home sensor dubbed the Eve, along with other accessories such as the Eve Room, Eve Weather, Door & Window Eve and Eve Energy, can now be pre-ordered from Amazon.com.

These devices make a vision of the HomeKit-enabled connected home a reality by gathering data on air quality, temperature, humidity, air pressure, energy consumption and more.
