Matter is finally out, and it can bring much-needed order to the smart home market. Moreover, the tech sector has high hopes for Matter, which could play a pivotal role in innovation for smart home devices.
The development of Matter has been underway for years, and the standard has had to be delayed several times, but this time it has finally happened after a long wait. It has seen an incredible surge in support, and we are hopeful that this will bring about real change in an otherwise challenging home automation industry.
The Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA) has released Matter 1.0. In addition to completing the standard, the CSA is now inviting smart home products to undergo compliance testing.
