Matter residences are a 26-unit freehold condominium located at matter road in district 14 Singapore. The new development is situated within walking distance to popular shopping centres such as NTUC Fairprice and Sims Vista Market & Food Centre, making it a great choice for families with children looking to live in the city-fringe. Residents can also expect a variety of schools such as Geylang Methodist School, Canossa Catholic Primary School and Macpherson Primary School nearby.
Matter’s goal is to onboard devices into the network, manage communications and automate tasks, and facilitate remote access if needed. To do that, a Matter controller must be on-premises and always powered. It can connect to your home network via Wi-Fi or ethernet, and use either of those protocols to communicate with other Matter devices. The tech can also be baked into existing smart home hubs, routers and digital displays, meaning you won’t have to invest in a new Matter device to start using your Matter-compatible products.
Most of the major smart home platforms have already announced plans to support Matter, including Apple’s HomePod Mini, 1st- and 2nd-gen HomePods and Apple TV 4K; Google’s Nest smart speakers and displays; Amazon Echo and Google Home Hub devices; and Samsung SmartThings hubs, including some fridges and TVs. In addition to these platforms, companies like Yale and Legrand have made their existing smart locks and plugs Matter-compatible by adding Thread radios.
Since Matter uses Wi-Fi and ethernet, most manufacturers will be able to upgrade their existing products with a simple firmware update to add support. This is especially true for Bluetooth-only devices that don’t rely on bridges, such as Nanoleaf’s Shapes and Elements bulbs, or GE’s Cync line of mesh Bluetooth smart bulbs. matter residences
