Your home. Your data.

When it’s your home, it’s all about your privacy. That’s why choosing the right indoor camera is so important.Eve Cam is the first camera designed exclusively for AppleHomeKit Secure Video, enabling you to securely store activity detected by Eve Cam in iCloud. It was built from the ground up to protect your privacy.

Protect your home and privacy...

...with direct access.

When you view the video stream from your Eve Cam while out and about, you communicate back to base directly over an end-to-end encrypted connection. Your camera's live stream never reaches the cloud – not even the iCloud.

...with local intelligence.

You choose what and when you want to record – Apple TV or HomePod then take over the task of analyzing in the privacy of your own four walls whether it's a person, pet or vehicle in the picture.

...with a secure recording history.

You choose what and when you want to record – Apple TV or HomePod then take over the task of analyzing in the privacy of your own four walls whether it's a person, pet or vehicle in the picture.

...with no registering required.

Eve does not harvest your personal data by forcing you to set up an account or registering your accessories – neither for Eve Cam nor for any other Eve product. Inviting Eve into your home is a purely personal affair between each accessory and you.

No one home?

Protect your home from intruders: As soon as Eve Cam detects motion, you’ll get a notification on your iPhone. That way you can take immediate action if there’s an unwanted visitor while at the same time record evidence.

Kids back home?

Check whether your kids have made it home safely. They're probably fine, but a sneak peak at home is simply reassuring.

What's your four-legged friend up to?

Is he taking a cat nap or destroying the new couch? If you're not worried about your pet, simply turn off notifications for pet activity.

Windows closed and TV off?

Is everything ok at your vacation home? Often all it takes is a quick look inside just to be sure.

It’s only on when you want it to be.

No matter how you use Eve Cam, you decide when it should be on and how it should operate. Set Eve Cam to automatically deactivate when everyone is home, for example. And control when you want to receive notifications. Apple TV, HomePod, or HomePod minirunning as a home hub intelligently determines when a person, animal, or vehicle is in the video.

The clearly visible status LED always tells you if the camera is on, off or recording.

Wi-Fi network settings

Make sure that either the 2.4 gigahertz band or the 5 gigahertz band is enabled on your router. The DHCP function must be activated on the router. Authentication via MAC addresses must be deactivated.

All WiFi-based devices with HomeKit support require the Bonjour protocol (Multicast) to work. Make sure that Bonjour and Multicast are enabled on the WiFi router and additional access points.

Network tools such as "Storm Control" and others, allow multicast to be restricted and therefore Bonjour. Disable this setting.So-called Powerline/PowerLAN adapters also restrict Bonjour or do not allow it. These access points are not suitable for the use of HomeKit-based WiFi devices.
