So… What is Matter?
Matter is the newest home automation platform that changes the way we can control our home automation products. Unlike the current home automation systems, Matter combines a unique combination of hardware and software to provide the user with one application that allows complete control of your entire home automation product suite.
One of the top benefits of Matter is the ability to connect to a wide range of devices and systems that are available for your home. This includes everything in the home automation space from smart lighting to security cameras and smart locks. By integrating all of your devices on a single application, Matter makes it so simple to control your home from anywhere in the world, without needing to be locked into a single, overpriced system that is popular on the market today.
Why are we so Excited?
One of the reasons we are excited about Matter is its ability to integrate and learn from your habits with your home automation products. The matter platform uses AI to understand how you use your devices and systems, and can automatically adjust things based on your routine. As an example, if you always turn your hallway light off after 9PM, Matter will learn this and do it automatically for you.
Another major advantage of Matter is its ability to integrate with other smart home products and assistants. This allows you to seamlessly connect all of the compatible smart home devices in your home such as Alexa, Google Home, and HomeKit, and integrate them all into one user interface. This is one of the most exciting things to date in the home automation space as we believe this will be the final step in moving everyone off the outdated single-branded systems and onto the open ecosystem.
What’s so good about the open Home Automation Ecosystem?
That’s a great question and one we are always so excited to answer. Many current home automation brands rely on a single platform to integrate your entire suite of products into. This ties you into the one system which does not allow you to easily replace and update products without being restricted by what is available. An open ecosystem allows the home or business owner to upgrade their home automation and security products as they please without worrying about app integration or having to resort to overpriced brands with very limited product options.
Another massive benefit of the open ecosystem is the following; Imagine having the entire world of home automation and security tech available on one user interface without having to swap between multiple apps. – well with Matter, this is a reality!
When will Matter be Available?
At this stage, we are starting to see more and more products released with Matter compatibility as well as updates from some of the leading tech companies that mention the open ecosystem. It’s impossible to say when Matter will be officially available, however, we are pleased to say that we are staying at the forefront of all Matter-related news and we expect to see an official launch in 2023.
Matter is going to be such a powerful home automation platform that will offer a huge range of benefits for home and business owners. Whether you’re looking to integrate only one or two products, or you’re looking for an entire smart home suite, Matter will be an incredible addition.
