Elgato goes all-in on HomeKit, changes name to Eve Systems, sells off gaming division

“Elgato makes a lot of great HomeKit hardware and smart home accessories — and now that’s going to be Elgato’s only focus as it tightens up and rebrands,” Zac Hall reports for 9to5Mac. “Elgato Systems is changing its name to Eve Systems and going all-in on HomeKit as it shifts its focus totally to its extensive Eve live of smart home products.”

“Eve makes loads of HomeKit compatible hardware including sensors, plugs, switches, and most recently sprinkler controllers,” Hall reports. “As part of the new focus on smart home tech, Eve has sold its gaming division to gaming peripheral firm Corsair.

  1. I have a number of Eve products and they work OK but are not proving very reliable. Both Eve Room and Eve Weather have failed on me and were replaced by ElGato. My Eve Energy is acting flaky – not on turning on and off but on measuring energy usage.

    I have been with ElGato since EyeTV v1.0 way back in the day, but I am thinking I will go elsewhere for smart home stuff. My Ecobee 4 Thermostat is going great.
