Matter Residences located at Matter Road in District 14 is a brand new freehold development with 26 Units. Developed by renowned developer L.K.Ang Construction, this 5-storey residential building is designed by acclaimed architect AGA Architects.
Unlike HomeKit, which requires a central hub to connect your devices, Matter uses local networks (Ethernet, Wi-Fi or Thread) instead of the internet. Your devices communicate directly, and nothing ever goes to the cloud unless you choose to use a device app that talks to the internet for remote control.
All major smart-home systems and most of the leading device manufacturers support Matter. In fact, the list of Alliance members and participants reads like a who’s who in the smart-home industry: Amazon, Google, Apple and Samsung are all on board, along with the likes of Philips Hue, Aqara, Switchbot, Veea, TP-Link, Huawei and more.
The good news for consumers is that most of the newer products on the market already support Matter, thanks to companies like Ikea, Google, Apple and Legrand incorporating it into their latest products. If you’re looking for a smart-home system that will work with Matter, look for the Matter logo on the box or in the product description.
The only thing you’ll need to add Matter compatibility is a Matter controller, which can be a smart speaker or hub from one of the big four (Apple, Amazon, Google and Samsung SmartThings), or a device app that supports the protocol. In the future, you may be able to set up your devices with Matter by scanning a QR code or using Frustration-Free Setup, which is similar to how HomeKit works today. matter residences
