Owl devices to support Matter IoT protocol

Home Blog Owl devices to support Matter IoT protocol

Matter technology is a new standard for smart home devices that allows them to communicate with each other seamlessly and securely. It is based on the Zigbee standard and is being developed by the Zigbee Alliance, a group of companies that includes Amazon, Google, and Samsung.

Owl Home, a company that specializes in smart home products, has announced that it will be integrating Matter technology into all of its products, including the popular Owl Wired and Owl Wireless devices. Owl Wired is a combined smoke detector that can also detect carbon monoxide, motion, sound, temperature, and humidity. It needs to be connected to an existing power source in order to be powered. Owl Wireless is the exact same product but wireless and it operates on batteries alone.

This means that users will be able to easily connect and control their smart home devices using a single app, regardless of the brand or technology used. With Owl Wired and Owl Wireless, users will have the ability to monitor their home for potential dangers such as smoke and carbon monoxide, as well as keep track of motion, sound, temperature, and humidity.

One of the main benefits of Matter technology is that it allows devices to communicate with each other directly, rather than through a central hub or bridge. This means that users will have more control over their smart home devices and will be able to create more advanced automation rules. For example, a user could set up their lights to turn on automatically when they arrive home and to turn off when they leave, without needing a separate smart home hub.

Another benefit of Matter technology is that it is designed to be more secure than other smart home standards. It uses end-to-end encryption to protect user data, and it also has a built-in security framework that makes it difficult for hackers to access and control devices.

In conclusion, the integration of Matter technology into all of Owl Home's products including Owl Wired and Owl Wireless is a significant step towards making the smart home experience more seamless and secure for the users. With Matter, users will be able to connect and control their devices with a single app, create more advanced automation rules, and have a more secure smart home experience, while keeping their home safe with the added benefits of Owl Wired and Owl Wireless.

Matter will be available via Over-the-air update for all Owl Wired devices for free. If you haven't got your hands on one, you can purchase one here: https://getowlhome.com/products/owl-wired-combined-smoke-carbon-monoxide-motion-climate-sensor
