The Connectivity Standards Alliance has officially approved the Matter Internet of Things standard.

The Matter 1.0 standard and certification program aims to make commercially sold devices easily deployable and able to communicate with each other from one place via a local controller. Over 280 technology companies collaborated on requirements and specification development, reference design, test events, and final specification authentication.

The program launches with eight authorized test laboratories to assess Matter and its underlying Wi-Fi and Thread network technologies. The certification, specifications, testing tools, and software development kit allow companies to accelerate the market rollout of hardware and innovations designed to improve privacy and security, and to reach a wider consumer base.
