However, Eve Room now relies on an integrated battery that can be charged via micro USB. The integrated battery provides power for six weeks. When the battery level is low, Eve Room enters a power-saving mode and restricts measurements to temperature and humidity for the next full charge. Eve Room costs 99.95 euros, pre-orders are accepted by the Eve Online Shop and Amazon.
Healthy living atmosphere always in view: fast, precise and reliable
Eve Room uses the latest technology from the Swiss sensor specialist Sensirion. The system used to determine the concentration of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is not only extremely energy-efficient, but thanks to optimized materials, it is especially durable and long-term accurate. Air quality, temperature and humidity can be queried via the Eve app, the Apple Home app and via Siri or directly on the 1.54-inch E-Ink display, even from a distance. In order to present the most relevant parameters of a room compactly, four different screen layouts are available, which can be selected via touch-sensitive buttons on the front panel. !
