Now available in the App Store, Eve 4.3 brings you much quicker access to all of HomeKit’s powerful features, improved customization options and loads of improvements for the newest members of the Eve family, Eve Cam and Eve Window Guard. Read all about it here:

 
 

Touch & Hold

With Eve 4.3, touch and hold almost anywhere to unlock the power of context menus for a powerful boost in productivity:

 

-  At a Glance: quickly control an accessory, set a scene that it’s part of and view all accessory details.
-  Room Overview: instantly toggle all lights in a room and refine room settings in a snap.
-  Accessory Details & Types: jumping back and forth between individual accessories’ details and the overview by Types has never been easier.
-  Automation: quickly toggle Rules and set Scenes.

 

Did you know? You can select a command without lifting your finger. Touch, hold, and slide your finger to select a command.

Quick Automation Access

If you’re like us, your list of Rules & Scenes is getting longer each day. That’s why Eve 4.3 introduces a new way to view and manage them: directly in the accessory’s details view.

At the bottom of each accessory’s details, find a new "Automation" entry that lists all Rules and Scenes that this accessory is a part of.

Can you touch and hold this new entry? Glad you asked: of course you can, offering you a quick way to toggle Rules and set Scenes.

Want to create a new Rule & Scene with that accessory? Tap "Add Rule" or "Add Scene" and you’ll automatically be in the right place.

Refined Details

As with every release, we’ve worked on all the small details that make Eve special. Just to name a few:

 

Home Colors

If you have more than one HomeKit Home, you know the pain: you often need to look twice when selecting and navigating it. With Eve 4.3, that becomes much easier: in addition to the already available custom icons, you can now assign a color to each Home in the General Settings - that color will not only be used in the Home Switcher, but also as a main color across the Eve app, making it so much easier to know which home you’re in.

More Icons

We’ve added a selection of icons to the app to better represent you devices, including new icons for lights and appliances.

Full support for Eve Window Guard

Now available in Germany, Eve Window Guard is a revolutionary contact sensor with break-in detection that slots unseen in your window frame. Eve 4.3 brings full support for Eve Window Guard, including Tilt Detection Calibration and Rule creation based on tampering attempts. Learn more about Eve Window Guard.

Improved support for Eve Cam

Just case you haven’t heard the news: we’re thrilled that Eve Cam starts shipping soon, and have further refined the experience in the Eve app. Since you can use Eve Cam as a fully featured motion sensor even when all video features are turned off (for example when you’re home), the At a Glance tile now displays the motion status when Eve Cam is in Detect Activity mode. Learn more about the camera built from the ground up to protect your privacy.

We hope you enjoy this feature-packed release of the Eve app! If you want to learn more about the Eve family, feel free to browse other blog posts or subscribe to our newsletter.

Hello Hugo!
May I ask what bridge you are referring to and what accessories added to it?

Hello Hugo!
I assume you are using Eve 4.3.1 and iOS 13.5.1.
To add accessories to the At a Glance view please scroll down and select Edit. Mark the onece you want to see in At a Glace with a start, unmark the others.
Best regards, volker

Hello Heath,
after we became aware of this issue, we immediately submitted an update to resolve it. This update is currently in review by Apple and will be available very soon.
In the meantime, tap and hold the app icon and select a room or scene to open and use the Eve app. Note: If you choose a scene from the menu, HomeKit will activate it.
Thanks for bearing with us,
your Eve team

Hallo Mike,
nachdem wir auf den Fehler aufmerksam wurden, haben wir direkt am Dienstag ein Update eingereicht, das diesen behebt. Das Update wird momentan von Apple geprüft und bald verfügbar sein.
In der Zwischenzeit kann die Eve-App durch langes Tippen auf das App-Icon und die Auswahl eines Raumes/einer Szene geöffnet werden. Hinweis: Wurde im Kontextmenü eine Szene gewählt, so führt HomeKit diese aus.
Viele Grüße aus München,
das Eve-Team

Auch diese Version der App zeigt einen absurden Luftdruck bei Eve Weather an: 13 hPa...

Hallo Stefan!
Dann ist vermutlich den Sensor des Eve Weather defekt.
Hast Du schon einem Reset versucht, mit neuen/frischen Batterien drin:
Im Batteriefach befindet sich eine Reset-Taste. Drücken Sie diese Taste mit Hilfe einer Büroklammer oder einem ähnlichen Objekt so lange, bis die rote LED zu blinken beginnt.
Lass mich wissen. ob das klappt, gern auch direkt unter volker@evehome.com
Viele Grüße, Volker

Ja, alles schon probiert. Ist dann wohl wirklich ein Defekt.
