Andrew O'Hara and William Gahllager hangout for this extra-long episode while Stephen Robles is away to talk about William's smart home setup, answer some user questions, and reveal the winner of the Eve Cam. Giveaway sponsored by Eve In last week’s episode, we announced a new giveaway of an incredible Eve Cam. We had countless entries and we’ve randomly chosen a winner which was Josh White. Congratulations to Josh White on winning and thank you to Eve Systems for sponsoring the giveaway. Not only did Eve sponsor that giveaway, they’ve also sponsored this week’s episode of the podcast as well. Recently they've launched that new Eve Cam which is a HomeKit Secure Video camera that allow you to keep an eye on your home around the clock while protecting your privacy at the same time. It doesn't collect any data, require any third-party accounts, everything is fully encrypted, and all data is processed locally in your home. Your home hub will analyze footage and help you discern when it sees just one of your pets versus a person. It has a motion sensor which can be used to trigger other accessories and the camera can automatically switch to privacy mode when you arrive home. The camera also has full 1080P resolution, night vision up to 5 meters away, 150-degree field of view, infrared motion sensor, and two-way communication. It also requires no additional subscription for storage, simply relying on your iCloud storage plan. Eve Cam already sold out its first batch of preorders but it is back in stock this week and ready for you to pick up.
