MATTER residences is one of the most sought-after homes by buyers for its location in Kallang URA Transformation. It is just a short drive away from the CBD, NTUC Fairprice and shopping malls like Sims Vista Market & Food Centre, 80 Circuit Road and many others. It is also in close proximity to some of the best schools in Singapore including Canossa Catholic Primary School, Geylang Methodist Secondary School and Macpherson Primary School.
Matter will reduce the smart home ecosystems’ fragmentation while improving interoperability, security and reliability. It works over Wi-Fi and, if necessary, Ethernet. It will support both Zigbee and Thread devices, but it focuses on Wi-Fi because it’s available in almost every home. It uses a low-power mesh network so it can continue working even when a device goes down, and it’s backed by banking-standard, public-key cryptography.
A Matter controller will be the brains of your home network, managing communication with other devices and running routines. Matter says you don’t need a new hub, and existing products can be made Matter controllers with over-the-air updates. The Google Nest Hub and Max, the Amazon Echo 4th Gen, the Apple HomePod Mini and the Samsung SmartThings Hub can all function as Matter controllers, as will certain SmartThings bridges, the upcoming Homey Pro hub and Z-Wave hubs from brands such as Yale and Eve.
A Matter controller could also be a smartphone app, such as Apple Home, Google Assistant or Alexa, or one of the dozens of other third-party smart home apps. It’s also possible that a company might make its own Matter-enabled hub, as will be the case with the Aqara M1S and M2S hubs. matter residences
