More recently, Elgato introduced a line of "smart" products, such as a key fob that track's the user's distance from their car or purse and provides notifications to help them find it. In 2014, it introduced a home monitoring system called Eve, which provides alerts to users regarding things like air pressure, temperature and water use. Elgato also developed light bulbs that can respond to programming on a mobile device and respond to commands over Bluetooth and it produces two Thunderbolt products: a dock for MacBooks and an external hard drive.
