Gifts For Dad For the techy Dad who travels, or likes to hang out at home or explore the outdoors, MacDirectory has you covered! Eve Flare by Eve Wireless lights are learning a lot from wireless speakers, and Eve’s Flare is the latest to untether illumination. Eve has built a reputation on its stable of Apple HomeKit enabled devices that can turn any home into a smart home. From sensors to switches to security, Eve can outfit all areas of the home. The Eve Flare provides a mobile lighting solution that works both inside and outside. The Flare comes in the form of a sturdy sphere about the size of a basketball. Its viewable surface is unmarred with any buttons or branding, and only a small flat base on the bottom of the globe belies a true sphere. That base is important. In addition to allowing the Flare to sit flat on any surface, it also houses the light’s only two buttons, a hook for hanging, and the wireless charging technology that facilitates the Flare’s mobility. A wireless charging base comes with every Flare in the form of a small disk that matches the size of the light’s flat base. When on the base, the Flare can be used indefinitely and quickly charges its own battery. Pick the Flare up, and it will continue to operate for up to six hours away from the base. No plugs or cords to worry about. This easy transition is what makes the Flare so likable as a lantern. Taking the light from the bedroom to the kitchen, or from the study to the porch has never been easier. The Flare even features a hangable hook on the bottom—a great feature for camping. Depending on where the Flare is being used, a different ambiance may be desired. Thankfully, Eve’s smartphone app provides full color and brightness control, allowing you to select the best hue for every situation. The app also comes with a range of presets, and the ability to save favorite shades. Even better, if you have a Hub setup through Apple HomeKit, Siri is more than glad to control the Flare, including any color changes. Whether it’s providing light on the back deck, keeping the calm in the study, or out on the trails, the Eve Flare is an innovative lighting solution that takes full advantage of today’s wireless technology, both in charging and control.
