Avea smart globe now controllable from Apple Watch


Elgato's app for controlling its Avea smart LED globe now includes Apple Watch support.

Last September, Elgato began its move into the smart home market with the release of the $67 Avea smart LED globe that is controllable from an iOS app that works on late-model iPhones, iPads and iPod touches that are Bluetooth Smart capable.

Avea provides seven different settings for different situations, including "wake-up" for a natural start to the day.

Elgato has now updated the Avea app with Apple Watch support.

Raising the wrist shows the current Avea light mood, and tapping the Glance allows selection of scenes and solid colours. Force Touch provides access to a scene's settings.

Avea's Wake-Up light can be programmed directly from the Apple Watch.

Online sales of Avea globes are currently handled by MegaBuy.
