Matter Residences is a new condo in Macpherson area with proximity to Mattar MRT station. Located in the heart of the city, it’s easy to commute to and from work.
The new Matter standard is “a way to simplify how devices communicate with each other,” says the CSA’s LaPre. It’s a language that can be used by different smart home platforms to build automated routines and connect devices from multiple ecosystems. Matter works over your home’s Wi-Fi network, so there’s less reliance on the cloud. And it’s designed to be more secure with a variety of failsafe mechanisms, including encryption and privacy policies.
If you’re planning to invest in a smart home, you should check for Matter compatibility. Many brands with existing smart home standards should be able to add support for Matter by simply updating the software on their devices. For instance, Nanoleaf has announced that its smart lighting products will be upgradable to Matter and Signify is adding support for the protocol to its Philips Hue Bridge. Samsung’s SmartThings hubs, TVs and appliances will also add Matter support as a firmware update later this year.
The first version of Matter covers the basics – things like on / off, lock / unlock and brighten / dim. But the list of manufacturers involved in the initiative reads like a who’s who of the tech industry, including Google, Amazon, Apple, Samsung, LG, Aqara, Eve and Legrand. And the list of devices is extensive, covering everything from lighting to heating and cooling to security. matter residences
