Eve Systems made some early CES product announcements today, revealing its first outdoor security camera, plus a motor for smart window shades fabricated by the Dutch window-coverings manufacturer Coulisse. Both products reflect Eve’s focus on Apple’s HomeKit smart home platform, Thread mesh-networking technology, and the Matter smart home standard backed by Amazon, Apple, and Google.
The Eve Outdoor Cam is actually a floodlight/security camera combo, and it looks very similar to the Netatmo Smart Outdoor Camera. Expected to be available April 5, the $250 camera combines a 1080p outdoor security camera with a 157-degree field of view and infrared night vision with an LED floodlight. The camera has a 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi adapter onboard, with an integrated microphone and speaker to enable two-way communication.
