Eve Energy Outlet shipping, smart faucets, and Vision Pro apps on HomeKit Insider

HomeKit Insider Podcast

On this episode of HomeKit Insider, your hosts discuss the launch of Eve Energy outlet, smart faucets, and also answer a listener's question about retrofitting smart blinds.

One of the holes in the Apple Vision Pro ecosystem at launch was the lack of any dedicated smart home apps. Maisomage appears to be the first such app to arrive on the App Store.

It's a bit bare bones but is at least an initial option for those looking to control Matter and Apple Home devices natively through Vision Pro.

Plus, after being announced back in December, Eve's new Energy Outlet is now shipping. This in-wall outlet has two independently controllable outlets that work with Apple Home and Matter.

Next, answering a question from listener Charles about blinds, your hosts break down various smart options for retrofitting existing blinds in your home, including devices from Eve, SwitchBot, and Ryse.

Finally, we wrap up the episode by going hands-on with the Moen MotionSense smart faucet and discuss why Apple seems to limit Apple Home faucets from precise control while Google and Amazon do not.
