Eve Weather is a Minimal Thread Device (MTD) – but what does that mean?
Alongside Bluetooth, Eve Weather supports Thread. This technology makes your smart home network more responsive and robust – the only thing else you need is HomePod mini. Battery-operated Thread accessories, such as Eve Weather, represent endpoints in your Thread network. These are also called Minimal Thread Devices (or MTDs), and can't relay data packets from other Thread-enabled accessories.
By contrast, mains-powered Full Thread Devices (or FTDs) that are always on, such as Eve Energy, can act as routers within your Thread network and relay data packets including from Eve Weather. The more of these FTDs you have in your network, the more stable and greater its reach becomes. Learn more.
Privacy by Design. What happens at home, stays at home.
Home is your most private space. The only place where you can do as you please, on your terms. However, if you live in a smart home, you will also go producing a load of data that others will be only too keen to get their hands on. That’s why we developed our Eve range from the ground up to keep information private and secure. There’s no Eve cloud, no registration and no tracking so your data won’t get exposed. Local intelligence enables direct communication between Eve accessory and iPhone, iPad or home hub without bridge or cloud dependency. Learn more.
The home hub: An essential device for HomeKit-enabled accessories
Whether you connect to your HomeKit accessories via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or Thread, your connected home is simply incomplete without a home hub – an Apple TV, HomePod or HomePod mini. Your home hub gives you both secure access to your accessories while you’re on the go and enables you to set up automations. Learn more.
HomeKit basics: How to manage your home with rooms, zones and homes
HomeKit uses three types of locations to manage both your Eve devices and any HomeKit-enabled devices from other vendors. The main three types are "Rooms", "Zones", and "Homes." Within Homes you’ll find "Scenes" and "Groups," which offer an easy way to control several devices with one command inside a Home. Learn more.
