The Elgato lineup of HomeKit-enabled Bluetooth low energy (BTLE)-enabled home automation gear has grown to include the Eve Degree. If you are not familiar with the Elgato lineup of products check them out here. Their products are all good picks for a range of basic home automation tasks in a simple, Apple centered home automation system. The Eve Degree is a temperature and humidity monitor and the first Elgato product to include a built in display. The Eve Degree is designed to be a display piece and you can mount it anywhere from a wine cellar to a balcony and see the current temperature at a glance. You can also use the Apple HomeKit application on your iPhone or iPad to see historical trends as well as the current measurements. You can also check on climate information remotely if you have HomeKit setup for remote access via your Apple TV or an iPad.
The Eve Degree currently retails for $69.95. Adding an environmental monitor is a great way to boost the comfort and improve the health of your environment. If you haven’t already checked out the Elgato lineup of products the Eve Room (currently $79.95), Eve Energy (currently $49.95) and Eve Weather ($49.95) are also interesting environment sensors (minus the display) that monitor more variables than the Eve Degree.
