What is matter?
Matter is a new smart home protocol with the goal of reducing fragmentation in the industry and improving security and reliability. It’s the result of a partnership between some of the world’s largest tech companies, including Apple, Amazon, Google, Comcast, Samsung SmartThings, and Signify.
Unlike Zigbee and Z-Wave, which require hubs, Matter devices communicate directly with one another over Wi-Fi and Thread. This means you can add any existing device that supports these other standards into a Matter network via a hub or bridge that’s been made Matter certified. That means your existing Z-Wave bulbs or Zigbee locks could become Matter-enabled by updating the firmware to support the protocol.
The underlying technology behind Matter is low-power mesh networking that’s backed up by banking-standard encryption. That helps make sure that if a single device in your network goes down, the rest of your devices will still function normally.
You’ll need a Matter controller to onboard your devices, manage communications, and set up automations. The controller can be any compatible device that’s running the latest version of your smart speaker or other app. That includes the HomePod Mini and HomePod (1st and 2nd Gen), Apple TV 4K, Google Home Hub and Nest Wi-Fi Pro, as well as a variety of other third-party apps and products from brands like Nanoleaf, Tuya, Schneider, Aqara, and Eve. matter residences
