If you've been waiting for the Eve Cam to go live, the wait is almost over. You can order the indoor HomeKit Secure Video camera now for $149.95, with shipping starting on 23 June.

Eve, the HomeKit specialist, announced its first security camera way back in January, at CES.

The Eve Cam, which is an indoor smart security camera, is created with Apple HomeKit Secure Video in mind. That means your footage is privately analyzed by your HomeKit hub (Apple TV or HomePod) and uses "on‑device intelligence" to determine if people or pets are present.

With the Eve Cam, if motion is detected users can get a notification that lets you view the clip from their iPhone Lock Screen. You can also view recorded video clips for for ten days in the Home app; it's stored in your iCloud but the good news is clips don't count against your data plan.
