Matter Residences in Geylang, Singapore

Matter Residences is located off of Mattar Road near MacPherson Road. Residents will be able to walk to amenities such as NTUC Fairprice and food centres like 80 Circuit Road market & food centre and Sims Vista Market & Food Centre. It is also close by to Canossa Catholic Primary School, Geylang Methodist School and MacPherson Primary School.

The line-up of partners and participants for Matter 1.0 is a who’s who in smart home tech: Amazon, Google, Apple and Samsung SmartThings are all on board, as are companies like Legrand, Yale, Aqara and Eve Systems.

In terms of device types, Matter 1.0 supports lighting and electrics, locks and security devices, thermostats and blinds, windows and doors, and TVs and appliances. There aren’t a lot of advanced features available at launch, but the specification is designed to grow over time.

To control a device connected to Matter, you’ll need a controller that’s compatible with the standard. Thankfully, most existing smart home hubs, speakers and digital displays can act as a controller. Even better, the four big platforms—Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple Home and Samsung SmartThings—all support Matter over Wi-Fi and through Thread, so your existing devices should be upgradeable with a simple over-the-air update.

Some products will require hardware changes to become Matter-compatible, such as Yale using swappable modules for its locks and Eve adding Thread radios to many of its plugs. The Z-Wave Alliance has solutions to bridge Zigbee and Z-Wave devices into Matter, while chipmaker Silicon Labs has developed a multiprotocol system-on-chip for manufacturers to use in their devices. matter residences
