The wireless device is powered by two AA batteries and uses Bluetooth technology, so there’s no need for a hub or gateway to attach on your router.

It also water resistant, so it can be placed inside or outside and sports a 120-degree field of view with a range of 9 meters.

With a usual reaction time of two seconds, the motion detector can be used in a number of different fashions including to operate lights and to communicate with other HomeKit devices. It can also be used as a trigger to activate scenes in the Home app in iOS 10. Elgato’s own Eve app is also a great way to control all of your HomeKit devices.

You can purchase the Eve Motion now for $49.95.
