Make way for a fresh smart home platform, this one brought to you by company Elgato. Called Eve, the system will encompass a wide range of electronic sensors and tracking motion, weather, air quality, water usage, electricity and sniffing for smoke.

Insteon now has an Apple HomeKit version of its smart home hub which will cost $150 (about £100 or AU$185). Be advised, however, that this particular iOS-friendly gadget uses a combination of power line wired networking and a proprietary radio frequency to link connected home elements together.
