Matter smart home
standard for digital trust

With faster route-to-market options on our trusted
roots, we’re helping the new Matter standard deliver
trust closer to home.

The need for a reliable, secure interoperability protocol

With roughly a billion smart home devices shipping every year, there’s a clear need for a standard in interoperability and security for home IoT. Until recently, there was no protocol for how IoT devices interact with each other and to networks and hubs like Google Nest, Apple Home, and Amazon Alexa—making secure connections and consumer convenience difficult to deliver. That’s why Matter was created.
