Residents at matter residences can look forward to being close to major amenities such as NTUC fairprice, 80 circuit road market & food centre and Sims Vista Market & Food Centre. They can also choose from several top schools like Canossa Catholic School, Geylang Methodist School and Macpherson Primary School.
Matter isn’t a new smart home platform but a protocol that aims to reduce device fragmentation by giving companies the ability to add Matter support without changing their existing apps or devices. The initiative was spearheaded by some of the largest tech companies in the world including Apple, Amazon, Google, Comcast, Samsung SmartThings and Signify.
In addition to making smart home products work together, Matter is designed to make them more reliable and secure. It uses low-power mesh networking so if one device goes down others can take over, and it incorporates security features like AES encryption backed by banking-grade security.
Unlike many of the smart home technologies we’re used to, Matter doesn’t require a hub. Instead, you’ll need a Matter controller, which can be a smartphone or any compatible app. The CSA’s list of approved Matter controllers currently includes Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa and Samsung SmartThings.
Most current smart plugs, light bulbs and locks will be able to switch to Matter with an over-the-air update (or a bridge or hub upgrade). Some brands, like Philips Hue and Aqara, have already pledged to upgrade their products to Matter; others are using swappable modules for their smart locks. matter residences
