HomeKit, Apple’s hub for home automation, is starting to find its way into actual products. With an expectation that a new Home app will be part of iOS 9 when it’s announced next week at WWDC, Elgato has announced its Eve platform of home automation and monitoring products.

The new range includes:

Eve Room senses indoor air quality, temperature and humidity. Learn how to feel better in your home, powered by a sophisticated sensor analysing volatile organic compounds (VOC).

Eve Weather senses temperature, humidity and air pressure. Easily access your personal weather data at your actual home, right on your iPhone and iPad.

Eve Door and Window understands whether your door or window is open or closed. See the current open/closed state at a glance and view statistics on time and duration to make smarter choices.

Eve Energy understands your energy consumption. Instantly see how much energy your devices are using, and switch them on or off with a simple tap or using Siri.

Al four devices can be managed from a free iOS app and use Bluetooth Smart for communications.

They are available for preorder with prices starting at US$40.
