Matter" could solve smart homes' biggest problem

The halcyon day when all our smart home devices talk to one another — and reduce our energy bills — took a giant step forward Thursday with the introduction of Matter, a widely-backed connectivity standard.To get more news about smart homes, you can visit official website.

Why it matters: Many consumers are leery of buying Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices such as smart light bulbs, blinds and door locks, fearing they're hard to set up or won't work with one another.
Driving the news: In a splashy announcement, the consortium developing Matter said it had formally released version 1.0, and that hundreds of products were being certified — ensuring that we'll start seeing the "Matter" logo on shelves soon.
More than 300 companies are on board so far, including powerful backers like Amazon, Apple, Google and Samsung, with more signing up by the day.
190 products are already Matter-certified (or close).
How it works: Customers will be able to mix and match smart home products from different manufacturers — robotic vacuums, light switches, doorbells, thermostats, appliances, entertainment systems, etc. — and Matter will (ideally) ensure that they all talk to one another.

At Matter's press conference, Marja Koopmans, Amazon's director of health and smart home, described her current smart home setup: "The lights turn on when I come down in the morning, and they turn off when we as a family check in."
Thanks to Alexa, "my espresso machine will be warmed up by the time that I come downstairs, and I talk to my TV when I want to watch the next episode of 'Rings of Power.'"
When she and her family leave for the day, "our smart lock secures the house, the thermostat drops down, and I can keep an eye on our aging pet bunny and our rambunctious 9-month-old black Lab through my cameras."
Matter, Koopmans said, will make these conveniences more easily available to all consumers — with lots more room for customization.
State of play: On the product side, Amazon — for one — says it'll have "17 different Echo devices, plugs, switches and bulbs with Android setup" working with Matter in December.

Some of those devices have already been released and are being updated with Matter support. Many more new gadgets will follow next year.
Manufacturers have shown lots of interest in getting their products Matter-certified.
"We've already had 20 new companies diving in, putting their weight into integrating new devices," said Tobin Richardson, president and CEO of the Connectivity Standards Alliance, which oversaw Matter's development. "And that goes from new appliances, medical devices to toys."
