Matter Residences – Will My Existing Smart Devices Work With Matter?
Matter Residences is a freehold condominium located at 7 Matter Road in Singapore District 14. It comprises of 1 Block of 5 Storey Condominium with 26 Units. Neighborhood groceries like NTUC Fairprice are within walking distance while authentic local food can be found at 80 Circuit Road Market & Food Centre, Sims Vista Market & Food Centre and MacPherson Primary School. The Kallang URA transformation is also nearby, so expect more parks and community spaces to be developed in the vicinity.
Will my existing smart devices work with Matter?
The big four (Apple Home, Amazon Echo, Google Home and Samsung SmartThings) all support Matter. They may offer additional features on top of what Matter offers, but you can use their smart speakers and hubs to control your devices with the protocol. And if you’re using a different platform, don’t worry: Matter’s Multi-Admin feature means that your devices can be controlled by multiple controller apps.
Smart lighting bulbs and fixtures, smart plugs, connected thermostats and switches, smart shades and door locks and media devices (like TVs) will all work with Matter. However, smart security cameras won’t be supported at launch. The CSA has said that it will address this in the future, though.
You won’t need a new smart hub to use Matter, but you will need a “Matter controller.” These are the devices that will onboard your other devices, manage communications and automations and facilitate remote access when enabled. Matter controllers will need to be compatible with Wi-Fi, Thread or Ethernet and be able to support a smart voice assistant. At CES 2024, companies like Eve Systems, Mui Labs and GE Lighting announced products that will become Matter controllers. matter residences
