- Matter Overview
- Telink Provides Matter Solution
- Lighting Example Demo
- Amazon, Apple, Google, the Zigbee Alliance (rebrands as Connectivity Standards Alliance), and hundreds of other companies work together on an smart home standard with an openness and ambitious attitude.
- Formerly known as Project CHIP.
- Matter is the unified IP-based connectivity protocol built on proven technologies, helping connect and build reliable, secure IoT ecosystems:
- Creates more connections between more objects
- Simplifies development for manufacturers
- Increases compatibility for consumers
Matter is the foundation for connected things:
- Smart home devices should be secure, reliable, and seamless to use.
- Enables communication across smart home devices, mobile app and cloud services.
- To define a specific set of IP-based networking technologies for device certification.
Matter allows to build devices that are compatible with smart home and voice services such as Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri, Google’s Assistant, and others:
- Common App Layer + Data Mode
- The first specification release of the Matter protocol will
- run on Ethernet, Wi-Fi and Thread network layers
- use Bluetooth Low Energy for commissioning
- High Security
- Open-source for all developers
Telink Provides Matter Solution
As a member of the Connectivity Standards Alliance, Telink is committed to support Matter connectivity standard to increase compatibility among smart home devices.
Lighting Example Demo
- Static thread commissioning
- Control lightbulb state via onoff cluster
- Control lightbulb brightness via levelcontrol cluster
- Get lightbulb state
- Factory reset
To run lighting example you will need:
- Telink B91 Development board.
- A border router board such as Raspberry-Pi for Matter processing and networking.
- A dongle - radio co-processor device which takes care of the wireless communications operated by the border router. You can use B91 Development Board as RCP.
- A desktop or laptop with a Linux development environment.
- Node represents physical or logical device
- Endpoint represents device function such as lightbulb or temperature control
- Cluster represents function property
- Each cluster contains set of attributes specific for that cluster
Telink lighting example is available at Official Matter Repo. The examples provide a step-by-step guide to successfully set up the environment and run the code.
