Large portions of the smart home ecosystem are expected to be unified by matter, and as a result, items that previously only worked with one assistant or gadget will be able to reach new customers. Eve shared this at IFA 2022, along with the news that its formerly exclusive Apple line of smart home goods will soon be available on Android.
By the end of 2022, Eve will launch an Android app enabling the company’s smart home gadgets for the first time on that platform. Eve was formerly restricted to iOS and HomeKit support.
Eve claims that Matter will support its devices on Google Assistant, Alexa, Samsung SmartThings, and other platforms in addition to Android. 14 of Eve’s existing products will be compatible with Matter and, in turn, Android and Google Assistant. This will be enabled through software updates to the Thread-enabled products. Eve says:
Eve’s former Bluetooth range is now an all-Thread lineup, offering 14 products that are ready to support Matter. These Thread-enabled Eve products, currently working exclusively with Apple Home, will begin receiving free over-the-air firmware updates so, over time, they can be used with other smart home systems, like Amazon Alexa, Google Home, or Samsung SmartThings. Alongside these updates, Eve will release a version of the Eve App for Android by end of this year.
Prior to their entrance into the Android market, Eve supplied smart home goods such as smart plugs, security cameras, motion sensors, water sensors, and an air quality monitor. The company will also introduce MotionBlinds, a third-generation Light Switch, and an updated white version of their outdoor camera at IFA 2022.
