You can use the Eve app to check that Eve Smoke is working perfectly - with a soft alarm that’s gentle on the ears (75 dB(A) at a distance of 1 m). An alarm test will not trigger a notification.
In case of a real alarm, Eve Smoke will alert you immediately with a loud alarm (85 dB(A) at a distance of 3 m) and by turning on the emergency light. You will hear a constant sound for a smoke alarm, and a sound/pause every second for a heat alarm. Eve Smoke will continue to alert you until no smoke or heat is detected, or until the alarm is silenced. If configured in the Apple Home App, you will also receive a notification.
You can mute Eve Smoke using the Eve app when Eve Smoke is in direct range. For your safety, an alarm cannot be muted using remote access. Muting an alarm using the Apple Home app is not possible. The alarm can also be muted by pressing the Test button on Eve Smoke or by pointing an infrared remote control towards Eve Smoke and pressing any button on the remote twice.
After muting an alarm, Eve Smoke will suppress the alert for 15 minutes. If smoke is still detected after 15 minutes, the alarm will sound again.
The acoustic and visual alarm of Eve Smoke cannot be deactivated.
