The new revolutionary standard for smart home: Matter

By 2030, the average home will have 20-30 connected devices. As the smart home market grows, the need for a common IoT communication standard becomes critical.

Consumers love smart home applications but they should work seamlessly and securely. Providing compatibility among smart home products with a high security level is one of today’s main challenges.

The industry-unifying Matter standard initiated by the Connectivity Standards Alliance aims to create a fully interoperable smart home ecosystem spanning different companies and smart home devices, promising reliable, secure connectivity Infineon is working with other industry leaders and the CSA to make the vision a reality.

Infineon provides low-power solutions to ensure reliable, optimized connectivity throughout a smart home. And Infineon’s sensing and touch offerings create a modern consumer experience, with interactive interfaces and voice control to make life easier.

Reliable, seamless connectivity – see how easy the Matter standard will work:

  • When the consumer buys a device with Matter standard like a coffeemaker, that device comes preloaded with related software and a set of credentials that prove its unique identity and certification status.
  • Adding the device to your home is easy: Scan a QR code with your phone and press the pairing button in the device.
  • Your phone will verify the device’s initial credentials and set it up on your network.
  • That’s it! Your new coffeemaker is online and ready to go! You can control it with your phone but, even better, with your smart speakers and other devices you have installed in your home.
  • Try out your new coffee maker and enjoy a cup of good coffee!

What consumers can expect of the new Matter standard

From the manufacturer's point of view

The project aims to make it easier for developers to build a device that is compatible with other smart home services. Therefore a GitHub repository exists with documents, as well as source code that people can use, regardless of whether they're formal members of the organization.
