The development is located at Mattar Road in Macpherson. There are a lot of amenities nearby such as NTUC fairprice, Sims Vista Market & food centre, Canossa Catholic Primary School, Geylang Methodist School and others. The residents can enjoy a variety of restaurants and cafes near Matter Residences too.
The CSA’s Mindala-Freeman says that the company hasn’t changed its vision for Matter and believes that it’s still “transformative” for smart home devices. She also reiterates that the protocol is meant to work alongside existing standards, such as Zigbee, Z-Wave and Bluetooth.
Unlike some smart home protocols, Matter’s communication is local to your home and doesn’t use the cloud to control the device. That means there’s less of a need to sign into different ecosystems, and it can be used with any compatible hub or platform.
As of November 2022, the CSA says that over 190 devices are Matter compatible, including smart plugs, switches and light bulbs. The list of Alliance members and participants reads like a who’s who of IoT: Amazon, Apple, Google, Samsung SmartThings, Nest, Comcast, GE, Philips Hue, Legrand, Aqara, Roborock, Panasonic, Huawei and many more. In spring 2023, the CSA says that all of Amazon’s Echo 4th-Generation smart speakers will be updated with a Thread border router and will become fully Matter compatible, as well as its entire lineup of Eero Wi-Fi systems. It will also update its upcoming Homey Pro hub to be a Matter-over-Wi-Fi bridge for Z-Wave and Zigbee devices. matter residences
