The initiators of the creation of such a protocol were the corporation’s Apple, Google, and Amazon, and the Connectivity Standards Alliance (formerly Zigbee Alliance) provided a platform for developers.

The working group will work on a standard that will take into account the specifics of different countries and will be applied around the world. As a result, the production of “smart” devices should be simplified and cheaper, they will be compatible with various services and voice assistants.

 

“We see great potential for smart home development in the  market. In particular, over the past year, the number of users of Yandex’s smart home has more than quadrupled. The fact that global giants are actively investing in Matter suggests that they understand and believe that this standard is the future. And we want to be involved in this process, “- said the head of” smart “devices” Yandex “Sergei Melnik.

Currently, the working group includes more than 300 companies from all over the world. It is expected that devices based on the new protocol will appear next year in 2022.

Starting in 2018, news flashed from Apple newsroom about the joint project there all alliance has decided to ready Project Connected Home over IP Intends to Simplify Development for Device Manufacturers and Increase Compatibility for Consumers

Seattle and Cupertino, Mountain View and Davis, California — Amazon, Apple, Google, and the Zigbee Alliance today announced a new working group that plans to develop and promote the adoption of a new, royalty-free connectivity standard to increase compatibility among smart home products, with security as a fundamental design tenet.
Zigbee Alliance board member companies such as IKEA, Legrand, NXP Semiconductors, Resideo, Samsung SmartThings, Schneider Electric, Signify (formerly Philips Lighting), Silicon Labs, Somfy, and Wulian are also on board to join the working group and contribute to the project.
The goal of the Connected Home over IP project is to simplify development for manufacturers and increase compatibility for consumers.
The project is built around a shared belief that smart home devices should be secure, reliable, and seamless to use. By building upon Internet Protocol (IP), the project aims to enable communication across smart home devices, mobile apps, and cloud services and to define a specific set of IP-based networking technologies for device certification.
The industry working group will take an open-source approach for the development and implementation of a new, unified connectivity protocol. The project intends to use contributions from market-tested smart home technologies from Amazon, Apple, Google, Zigbee Alliance, and others.
The decision to leverage these technologies is expected to accelerate the development of the protocol, and deliver benefits to manufacturers and consumers faster.
The project aims to make it easier for device manufacturers to build devices that are compatible with smart home and voice services such as Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri, Google’s Assistant, and others.
The planned protocol will complement existing technologies, and working group members encourage device manufacturers to continue innovating using technologies available today.
Project Connected Home over IP welcomes device manufacturers, silicon providers, and other developers from across the smart home industry to participate in and contribute to the standard.
