Formerly known as Project Connected Home over IP (CHIP), Matter has primarily been developed by Amazon, Apple, Comcast, Google, SmartThings, and the CSA, along with other companies such as IKEA, Schneider Electric, Signify, and more.

With more than 180 member organizations of all sizes, Matter is now the unified IP-based, royalty-free connectivity standard that enables communications among a wide range of smart devices. Due to its interoperability, devices from multiple brands can work natively together, providing greater compatibility.

“We create marks of trust, and Matter is an important milestone for users in our long history of delivering unifying, secure, reliable and trustworthy standards for the IoT,” said Tobin Richardson, President and CEO of the Connectivity Standards Alliance. “I’m very excited to unveil Matter as a foundational element in delivering a truly connected world.”
