Shortly after the accessory first launched, Apple has started selling the HomeKit-compatible Eve Aqua Smart Water Controller online through Apple.com, allowing users to water the plants, turn on the sprinklers, calculate water consumption, and more from their iPhone or iPad.
Using the new HomeKit sprinkler accessory type introduced in iOS 11.2, Eve Aqua gives homeowners the ability to automate their garden, with controls within the Eve Aqua application offering advanced features such as estimates of how much water is being consumed, and the ability to schedule times for when the sprinklers should be activated.
As the device uses HomeKit you can simply ask, “Hey Siri, turn on my sprinkler” wherever you are in the world and the Eve Aqua garden hose controller will kick into action.
As shown in the video below, the Eve Aqua unit simply attaches to your standard outdoor faucet, users can then connect their garden hose to the device to run water through the system. The device is IPX4 water resistant and UV resistant, making it fit to work in all types of climates and weather conditions.
