Elgato eve

I just bought homey wich i want to connect to my eve elgato eve products but i dont know how. Can someone help me?

This device seems to be especially designed for Apple homekit and does not offer any other way to communicate with other third parties as far as I can tell.

You could try the app homekit. If your lucky your device is supported.

That’s not what the Homekit apps for Homey do: they only expose devices already added to Homey to Homekit, not the other way around.

Aha did not know that. Thx for this info. Hoped it could work for Mitchell.

Thank you all for the quick replay!
I have tried to find the Elgato eve Energy but i could not find it in the homey app, am i doing something wrong?

I can’t find an app for that device or brand in the Athom app store, so it doesn’t seem to be supported at all by Homey.

You may find some information here

As others have mentioned there is a Homey app which allows devices connected to a Homey hub to be accessible via Apple’s HomeKit system. This is the opposite to what you are trying to achieve.

As far as I am aware there is no Homey app to do what you want which is to add HomeKit devices to a Homey hub. However Home-Assistant does have both a HomeKit controller app and a HomeKit client app, in fact it is the only system I have see with the ability to act as a HomeKit client. The relevance of this to you and other Homey users is that it is possible to link a Homey hub to Home-Assistant via MQTT which acts as a bridge between different smart home hub systems.

Therefore if you install MQTT on Homey and setup a Home-Assistant with both HomeKit and MQTT you will be able to access the Elgato (now called Eve Home) devices in Homey.

Obviously it would be easier if someone were to create a HomeKit client app for Homey. Since this has been proven possible on Home-Assistant and one might be able to look at that code a lot of the hard work has already been done.
