Topic: Connectivity Standards Alliance & Matter Introduction
Speaker: Chris LaPré of Connectivity Standards Alliance
On October 4, 2022, the Alliance released Matter 1.0, a global, open-source standard that removes barriers to IoT device interoperability & sustainability by enabling smart home products to work together seamlessly, to help to improve efficiency and reduce energy use and cost. This industry-unifying standard is the foundation for connected things and eliminates the walled gardens of IoT with the promise of reliable, secure connectivity. Matter paves a new path to product innovation and adoption by creating increased connections between more objects, simplifying development for manufacturers, and improved compatibility and accessibility for consumers. We will share how to get involved in the Connectivity Standards Alliance and the nearly 500-plus global companies inspired to change the future of IoT.
