Matter is an open standard for smart home technology, launched by Amazon, Apple, Google, Comcast and the Zigbee Alliance (now Connectivity Standards Alliance, or CSA). It enables devices to work with any Matter-certified ecosystem, thus reducing fragmentation and promoting interoperability among devices and IoT platforms from different providers. Its focus on standardization at the application level, support for Wi-Fi and Thread as communication mediums and backing from major tech companies set it apart from other protocols like Zigbee. Although the number of Matter-enabled devices is still relatively low, its growing importance in the IoT space makes it worth assessing for those looking to build smart home and IoT solutions.
