Eve Systems has announced the long-awaited second-generation Flare portable smart light, alongside the new EU-only smart shutter switch for Apple Home.
The new Eve Flare doesn’t change much. It still comes with a wireless charging pad for the built-in battery, support for nearly infinite colors, and works with the Home app.
What did change is the new Flare has added Thread support alongside Bluetooth. Thread is a new mesh network standard that is more reliable, faster, and self-healing when compared to older standards.
Other specs of the Flare include 6 hours of battery life, an integrated carrying handle, IP65 water resistance for outdoor use, and a ready-made color palette alongside user-selected options.
Alongside the refreshed smart light, Eve is also showing off its new Eve Shutter Switch. Available in select European markets, the new controller will help automate your shutters.
