IoT development platform service provider Tuya Smart recently affirmed its support for the Matter smart home standard, a commitment to ensure that Tuya’s customers can seamlessly join in the new smart home connectivity standard and provide users with a more convenient smart home experience.
Tuya customers and market-leading brands such as Calex and Geeni are all planning to launch new series of consumer products that will also support the Matter standard, possibly in 2022 when the new communication protocol finally launches.
Introduced by Amazon, Apple, Google, Comcast, and the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA), Matter aims to provide a unified smart home standard to allow interoperability between devices and smart home platforms.
As a member of the Board of Directors of CSA, Tuya says it has been expanding its commitment to promote universal open standards that enable IoT products to securely connect and interact, providing technical support to the Work Group and working closely with major platform partners to ensure Tuya-enabled device work with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple HomeKit, and Samsung Smarthings.
“Upon joining the Alliance, Tuya has worked to drive interoperability and accelerate the adoption of Zigbee technology. Most recently they are also supporting our Matter standards efforts and we are grateful for Tuya’s support and commitment,” says Tobin Richardson, president and CEO of the Connectivity Standards Alliance.
With over 446,000 registered developers and more than 1,100 product categories in the Tuya ecosystem, Tuya’s support for Matter will not only enable its ecosystem partners to be among the first companies to release Matter-compatible devices once the standard officially launches, but also provide consumers with a wider variety of Matter-compatible smart home solutions.
By adding support for Matter, Tuya is continuing its efforts to ensure more connections between more devices and increasing compatibility for consumers. Together with other partners across industries, Tuya aims for continuous innovation and transforming the future of connectivity.
