Gadget of the day: with Eve Aqua, irrigate the garden with HomeKit and Siri – Macitynet.it
Homekit is starting to catch on and among the gadgets of most interest in the sector, that of devices controlled by the Apple ecosystem, there is also Eve Aqua.On this device, now on sale on Amazon, we talked about it in 2017, during the CES of Las Vegas when I explained the functions: it is a garden accessory that connects to your water supply and allows you to control irrigation.
The operation of Eve Aqua is very simple. It is managed via Bluetooth and powered by a battery (two AA batteries are required). Compatibility with the Apple world means that in addition to opening and closing it using the appropriate Apple Home app, it is also possible to use it through Siri. Obviously there is no lack of integrated timers and it is also possible to set the duration of the operation before closing the tap.

Automations can be configured with HomeKit so as to start the sprinklers at predetermined intervals and thanks to the Eve app it is possible to view additional information on the peripheral including statistics on the amount of water used, in order to obtain an approximation on consumption.
The shutdown timer helps prevent floods and wastes of water in general, with the possibility of setting the opening and closing time range directly from the Apple Home app. What is important to note here is that the timer controlled by the unit itself; even if all iOS devices and HomeKit hubs go offline for some reason, the timer will still be able to work, and close the valve.
It costs 99.95 on Amazon.
