Eve has released an update to the Eve for HomeKit app (opens in new tab) on iOS that brings new Touch & Hold context menus and quick automation access. Version 4.3 of the app, which is available today, is already popular among HomeKit power users for its ability to create automations and manage accessory characteristics that are not possible through Apple's Home app.
The updated Eve app also includes a quicker way to track down and manage automations. From the detail view for an accessory a new Automation menu is now available that will display all of the rules and scenes that it participates in.
Other highlights from the latest release include support for the company's recently released (in Germany) Window Guard (opens in new tab), improvements to the Eve Cam which is shipping soon, custom home colors, and new accessory icons.
The Eve for HomeKit (opens in new tab) app and the latest update are available for free on the AppStore today.
