Introducing Matter 1.3: Elevating Your Smart Home Experience

At Smart & Secure Centre, we are always excited to share the latest advancements in smart home technology with our valued customers. Today, we're thrilled to dive into the newest update to the Matter smart home standard: Matter 1.3.

The Matter standard has been steadily evolving since its inception, and with each iteration comes a host of new features and supported devices aimed at enhancing the convenience, efficiency, and security of your smart home ecosystem. Let's take a closer look at some of the key additions in Matter 1.3 and what they mean for you.


Expanded Device Support

Matter 1.3 brings support for a diverse range of new devices, including kitchen cooking appliances such as standard and microwave ovens, cooktops, and extractor hoods. This means you can now seamlessly integrate these essential kitchen appliances into your smart home setup, gaining unprecedented control over cooking times, temperatures, and more, all from the convenience of your smartphone or smart home hub.

But that's not all—laundry dryers are also joining the roster of supported devices under Matter 1.3, allowing you to remotely manage drying cycles and settings with ease. Coupled with the existing support for laundry washers introduced in Matter 1.2, you now have complete control over your laundry appliances, making chores a breeze.

Enhanced Water Management

In addition to kitchen and laundry appliances, Matter 1.3 introduces support for a variety of water-management devices, including leak and freeze detectors, rain sensors, and smart water valves. With these additions, you can monitor and manage water usage in your home more effectively, helping to prevent costly damage from leaks and other water-related issues.

Smart Lighting Scenes

One of the most exciting enhancements in Matter 1.3 is the addition of support for smart lighting scenes. Now, you can create and control dynamic lighting scenes for individual bulbs or entire rooms, right from your preferred Matter controller app. Say goodbye to the hassle of juggling multiple apps—Matter 1.3 streamlines the management of complex smart lighting setups, putting customisation and control at your fingertips.

Further Improvements

But the innovation doesn't stop there. Matter 1.3 also introduces support for electric vehicle charging, enhanced command batching for more synchronised device control, and expanded Matter Casting functionality, allowing other Matter-enabled devices to send alerts to your TV screen.

As the Matter standard continues to evolve, we remain committed to bringing you the latest advancements in smart home technology. While security cameras are not yet part of the Matter standard, rest assured that we are closely monitoring developments and will keep you informed of any updates in this area.

Matter 1.3 represents a significant milestone in the evolution of smart home technology, offering expanded device support, enhanced functionality, and a more seamless user experience. We're excited to see how these new features empower you to create the ultimate smart home environment tailored to your unique lifestyle and preferences.  Subscribe Us and stay tuned for more updates from us as we continue to lead the way in smart home innovation.
