Eve Energy Smart Plug $29.96 at Amazon (matter over thread plus energy reporting)

Wow— this matches the black Friday deal, which was the best price ever for this device.

It’s a simple one socket smart plug. UL listed. The feature benefits are from the firmware. No custom code is needed for these benefits.

  1. matter over thread. Works well as long as you have a Thread border router (more on that below.)

  2. plus custom energy monitoring with a smartthings – specific integration, so it will show up on the “Smartthings energy service” and you can use the energy level in smartthings routines.

  3. also works with Apple home.


Not sure how long the sale will last, but it’s a good one.

If this will be your first matter device, make sure you read the following FAQ. And specifically, if you have a V2, you’ll need something else to be the thread border router.

FAQ: What do I need to add a Matter device to the SmartThings app? Do I need a bridge router device?


Works with the stock Matter switch driver.


I like how the picture shows it controlling an air purifier. Does anyone have a link to a dumb air purifier that can be controlled via a smartplug like this? I can’t find them anymore they all have digital on/off buttons.

Sorry, I don’t know of one.

I don’t know if this is of any interest, but we use an excellent Levoit air purifier that can be controlled via an Alexa routine. We actually have two in two different sizes.
