Join the Alliance’s Executive Vice President, Michelle Mindala-Freeman on Thursday, September 7th for the educational session on Matter.

Should Matter matter to you? What the new open era of smart home means for your business.

Learning Objectives
  • Discover what Matter and Thread are, why they were created, how they work, and how they’re different from other interoperability standards.
  • Find out why Thread, the low-power, long-range mesh networking protocol, is enabling many new Matter devices with enhanced capabilities.
  • Understand the Matter pipeline and roadmap, supported by major smart home platforms and brands, so you can leverage Matter and Thread in your business.
  • Learn how Matter works with the technologies and devices already installed in your clients’ homes.
Have you already gotten questions from your clients on new Matter and Thread products hitting the market? If not, you soon will, as the open era of the smart home built on these standards is here — and likely already in many of your clients’ homes.


The consumer smart home industry has come together to develop these open interoperability technologies, now supported by Amazon, Apple, Google, Samsung, and a growing number of device-maker brands. This is your opportunity to hear directly from experts and leaders of the Matter and Thread initiatives on how these technologies work, how adoption is going, what is on the roadmap, and how you can leverage them to grow your business.


As the DIY and professionally installed smart homes continue to evolve and overlap, it’s increasingly important to know how to incorporate these new technologies and products into your business, channel relationships, and customer education.
