Eve Energy Strip

This Smart Surge Protector Won One of the World’s Most Prestigious Design Awards


April 9, 2019 Tech By

The Eve Energy Strip ($100) is a new HomeKit-enabled power strip that comes with three smart plugs. Not only will it be the most-impressive plug you’ve ever owned, but it’s also likely to be the prettiest. It has an aluminum frame and a black matte body, and it recently won a 2019 Red Dot Award for product design.

All three of the Energy Strip’s outlets can be controlled from the Home app on your iPhone, iPad or Mac — they can also be controlled through the Eve app or by using Siri voice commands. Like traditional power strips, Eve’s new model provides surge, overcurrent and overvoltage protection. But the Eva app is great for environmentally-conscious consumers, as it’ll break down your total power consumption by day, week, month and year.

Another neat feature: the three LED power indicator lights located near the base of the Eve Energy Strip. Each light shows the power status of its corresponding outlet, and via an adjacent button near each LED light.
