Following the release of Thread support for the EU version, Eve is releasing the 4th generation of its Eve Energy in the US and UK. The new Eve Energy follows the previous design, but the biggest change is it will now support Thread. However, unlike battery-operated devices, Eve Energy can act as a Thread router and not just an endpoint.

However, unlike battery-operated devices, Eve Energy can act as a Thread router and not just an endpoint. So when using the 4th Gen Eve Energy users can place it in locations to extend the Thread network.

The new Eve Weather will follow a familiar design as Eve’s HomeKit devices, but a new larger screen. Because of the larger screen, users will be presented with all the data on one screen, saving having to scroll.

Eve Weather will collect the barometric pressure, temperature, and humidity levels. The device will also display each morning with a 12-hour weather trend. It has IPX3 resistance to handle the weather and will support Bluetooth and Thread wireless connectivity.
