The 2022 installment of the Consumer Electronics Show is this week, and the announcements are already starting. Eve is a company that makes several smart home products that support Apple’s HomeKit platform. More recently it has been refreshing its lineup to include support for Matter’s Thread protocol, and it has a couple of announcements to kick off CES 2022. 

The company’s MotionBlinds for HomeKit are now available to purchase globally. However, it looks like the landing page to find a Coulisse reseller isn’t quite live yet. (Mondays, am I right?) You can keep checking motionblinds.com/eve or 

in the US for more availability info. Pricing starts at $332.50 on Select Blinds with the current promotion. 

The blinds integrate with Apple’s HomeKit platform allowing you to use Siri to control the blinds. There’s a rechargeable battery-powered motor via a USB-C port, which is sure to be a hassle and something you ultimately forget to charge. Outside of that, the blinds sound like a welcome addition to Eve’s HomeKit offering. 


Eve’s Outdoor Cam with HomeKit support

Eve’s second announcement is something I’ve been personally wanting from any company — an outdoor camera with a floodlight that integrates with Apple’s HomeKit Secure Video offering. The Eve Outdoor Cam is exactly that, and it launches on April 5 for $250. 

The camera records 1080p video with a 157-degree field of view, has infrared night vision, IP55 rating for water/dust resistance, and has two-way communication thanks to a built-in speaker and microphone. 

Apple’s HomeKit Secure Video platform requires an iCloud+ plan that starts at $0.99 a month for a single camera (in addition to iCloud storage and other features). When active, all recorded footage is encrypted and stored in your iCloud account. You’ll also get notifications when a person, animal, vehicle or package is detected within the camera’s field of view. 

There isn’t a landing page for the camera on Eve’s website, but you can read more about the company’s CES announcements here.
