Compact and Redesigned Air Quality Monitor Features a Display and Improved Sensors

Munich, August 27, 2018 – Eve Systems today announced the second generation of Eve Room, its indoor climate & air quality monitor with Apple HomeKit technology. Eve Room brandishes a completely new design, including a high-contrast E-Ink display and anodized aluminum body with state-of-the-art sensor technology for greatly improved durability and long-term accuracy. As before, Eve Room can be operated wirelessly. However, it is now powered by an integrated rechargeable battery. Eve Room will be available for USD $99.95 starting September 12th. Pre-orders are accepted starting today at the Eve Online Store and Amazon.

“After the first, highly successful generation of Eve Room, this new version raises the bar even higher,” says Markus Fest, Managing Director of Eve Systems. “No other air quality sensor offers this level of accuracy, design quality, and energy efficiency.”

Healthy home at a glance: fast, precise and reliable

Eve Room leverages the latest technology by Swiss sensor specialist Sensirion. The process that determines the concentration of volatile organic components (VOC) is not only extremely energy efficient, but thanks to optimized materials, it’s also particularly durable and accurate over the long term. Air quality, temperature, and humidity can be checked via the Eve app and Siri, or directly on the 1.54″ E-Ink display, even from a distance. Four different screen layouts are available to display the most relevant room parameters in a compact way and can be selected via capacitive touch controls on the front panel. The integrated battery supplies power for six weeks, whereby Eve Room switches to an energy-saving mode that limits measurements to temperature and humidity until the next full charge. Eve Room can also be operated with a permanent power supply.
