    I know Wyze is a participant in the Matter standard , but can you give specifics on which existing products can and will be upgraded to Matter?

    Matter also isn't "the dominance of the few". A ton of companies are all on board--, from Samsung to Amazon to Kroger to IKEA.

    Matter-over-Thread is the future - after Q4'21.
  • Just moved in and need 7-8 smoke detectors. Are nest protectors worth an additional $700?
    I wouldn’t buy any new smart home product that doesn’t support Matter so you can eventually use whatever smart home assistant (or multiple) that you like.
  • New to automation and Z-Wave is a headache
    Yeah... being very transparent here (and remember we are a Z-Wave company right now) -- I think it will be very difficult for Z-Wave in the future. There definitely is a need for it as it's way more secure than the other protocols, it runs on a separate band than 2.4, and has a ton of customization available -- but along with the challenges it faces from a logistics standpoint, it also faces the fact that all the major companies (Apple, Samsung, Google, Amazon, Philips/Signify) have not invested in it and in fact, they've chosen a new protocol (Matter). Some of the ZigBee devices out there will be able to be converted over to the Matter protocol via an over-the-air update. Z-Wave, however, is still very important to security companies (Ring,, etc) and also home automation enthusiasts, but that is a very, very niche market.
  • No mention of HomeKit on the Solocam range? | 2021-06-07
    C’mon Thread/Project CHIP/Matter! Bring us some options!
  • Will Simplisafe support "Matter"?
    With Apples announcement of support for ""Matter" and others like Google as well. Any thoughts on SimpliSafe improving integrations. Those of us using HomeKit would love to see it.
  • Does the Ecobee Pro control Carrier Infinity 2 stage compressor and 2 stage variable speed furnace? | 2021-06-06
    That makes perfect sense. If the house was not an open 1350 sqft floorplan with a centrally located thermostat, I could see how additional sensors would be quite helpful. I'd even add them for the sheer data aspect if I found them cost effective or the various smart home systems used generic multi-purpose sensors with temp, humidity, motion and luminance in one sensor. Hopefully we'll get there soon when more devices start coming out that work with the Matter protocol.
  • Samsung will shut down the v1 SmartThings hub this month
    Is the writer of the article completely unaware of Project Connected Home, now called Matter?
  • New Apple OS homeOS appears in a job offer | 2021-06-02
    I can see Apple getting ahead with Matter and Thread sine they can leverage HomeKit for them, especially as they could be the first mainstream company to make an announcement about them. It means Matter and Thread could become associated with Apple more than anyone else
  • Is it time to stop purchasing Bluetooth based HomeKit products? | 2021-05-31
  • Nest to work with HomeKit later this year | 2021-05-21
    Yes, it's exactly this article that is misleading. Here is how I'm currently thinking about it... The Matter specification has a goal of unification and interoperability, but it is focused on connectivity and communication. This has many benefits for the entire market, from supply chain to software development to the individuals' smart home ecosystem. However, my questions are around the standards that Apple implements for HomeKit that Matter doesn't necessarily care about, such as local device control and privacy. Does the Matter spec care if a device has to phone home to a server in who-knows-where? In essence just because a device supports Matter does not mean it would pass Apple HomeKit certification as it is defined today.

    Interestingly on the Project CHIP GitHub, Apple employees are easily leading the commit count. I'm no developer to delve into any analysis beyond that, but a positive sign Apple takes Project CHIP seriously:
