  • Mesh hub/setup for google devices
    It should be clarified that in this case only Nest Wifi will have support for Thread. At the moment there are not many third-party devices compatible with Thread but it is expected that with the publication of the new Matter standard, more third-party devices will adopt it. As for the operation of the Thread mesh, it is only used for communication between local devices, if a device requires Internet access then it will do so through the Wi-Fi router.
  • Apple's Core Smart Home Lineup Is Stale, Needs a Refresh | 2021-10-20
    It's a smart home standard being adopted by the biggest players in the space (Apple, Google, Amazon, etc). Essentially, any smart product that supports Matter will work with any of the different ecosystems that have adopted the standard. Here's a link to their website: Google has already said their entire Nest lineup will support Matter, so you can expect them to tie into HomeKit. Apple announced that they're going all-in on the standard, so that likely means a lot of new devices that work with HomeKit and even new device types we don't have in HomeKit today (I would assume vaccuums would be coming).

    And if Lutron supported Matter, they’d be able to directly interface with Amazon / Apple / Google smart homes. Making it easier for consumers to just install a Lutron switch without having to get a bridge and have a whole second system.
  • This was in my hotel room when I came back, wasn’t there before. The outlet part and the little box are both flashing blue lights. Can anyone tell me what this is?
    thats why a company like matter has a potential to be huge. one communication standard for multiple ecosystems and devices sounds a little too good to be true so i'm hoping it's not.

    Starting about next summer, everyone will come out with Matter compatible hardware that communicates over Thread instead of Zigbee or Zwave.

    Home automation would be pretty cool. A friend of mine told me about this new protocol (non-crypto) being developed just for interoperability between smart home devices called Matter. The GH repo is pretty active too. Haven’t really looked into it but I felt like IOTA would be paramount for exactly this use case.
  • Starting Guide - Home Automation
    There are pros and cons for each protocol and no one can tell you to choose one or the other. ZigBee is gaining popularity over Z-wave these past few years (there's more and more brands like Philips Hue or Belkin implementing ZigBee in their devices) but there's still no standard. Matter is trying to deliver a unified protocol for connected things but it takes time.

    Matter, the smart home protocol backed by Google, Amazon, Samsung, Signify, Somfy, SmartThings and many many more.
  • iRobot — Where are Siri capabilities to clean by a room / zone? | 2021-08-22
    There's a new standard, Matter, that all three agreed on that should be released by the end of the year.
  • 5th gen incoming?
    Amazon is a founding member of the new Matter protocol for IoT devices and devices supporting it are expected to start rolling out next year. Even if they did release a 5th gen this year, I would wait till next years generation that would very likely include the new protocol. Unless you absolutely need a new Echo device.
