Matter-certified accessories are a breeze to integrate into your smart home. Your entire family can control your home via a smartphone or voice assistant effortlessly using any device they choose. That’s because Matter doesn’t mind if you use an iPhone, Android device, Alexa-enabled smart speaker, Google Assistant, or Siri.
Designed around interoperability and platform independence, making it easy for everyone to control their accessories using any device they choose: The future of the smart home is called Matter. The first Matter-enabled accessories will be available soon – and Eve will be right alongside the trailblazers.

Matter brings convenience to the home – for everyone.
Matter talks Thread.
Matter devices can communicate via Thread, Wi-Fi, or bridges. Choosing Thread makes your smart home network more responsive, robust, and increases its reach – which is why Eve is embracing Thread and enhancing all Bluetooth accessories to include Thread technology.
Future-proof with Eve.
Eve has already built the world’s largest portfolio of Thread-enabled accessories – so if you purchase a Thread-enabled Eve accessory today, it is already ready to be updated to Matter. Matter is scheduled to be available on all platforms in fall 2022. Discover Eve accessories supporting Thread
“Its commitment to avoiding cloud control is why Eve devices have been iPhone- and HomeKit-only thus far. But with Matter, Eve can move to the other platforms while remaining entirely local."
"The idea is it will be easier for consumers to identify devices that will work within their smart home ecosystem; whether that be Alexa, HomeKit, Google’s Assistant, SmartThings, or any others who join the party. For example, a HomeKit only brand such as Eve would never be compatible with SmartThings... but Matter will make that possible."
"Matter's promise is that consumers won't have to wonder whether different brands of smart home devices will play nicely with each other; that has always seemed like the right outcome for the smart home, and it seems closer to reality than ever.”
When will Matter be available?
Matter is scheduled to be available on all platforms in fall 2022. Eve will be among the first to support this standard on a wide range of accessories. Subscribe to our newsletter to be among the first to learn when it’s all going to happen.
Do I need to buy a whole bunch of new accessories?
Once Matter is launched, all Thread-enabled Eve accessories will receive free firmware updates so you can use them with Matter. This overview tells you which Eve accessories are already Thread-enabled – so you can start kitting out your smart home of the future right away.
What has Thread got to do with Matter?
Apart from unpractical bridges, there are two direct connection technologies that your smart home accessories can use to support Matter: Wi-Fi and Thread. Thread offers several advantages over Wi-Fi, including robust mesh technology and incredible energy efficiency. Learn more about the advantages of Thread here.
What’s the difference between HomeKit and Matter?
Matter is a new smart home protocol developed jointly by Amazon, Apple, Google, and many other manufacturers to eliminate incompatibilities in the smart home once and for all. The protocol incorporates many benefits of HomeKit, including an ultra-secure and completely local infrastructure – all without the need for an internet connection. If HomeKit impressed you, you'll be thrilled about Matter.
What’s going to happen with my HomeKit accessories?
Any HomeKit accessories you own will continue to work as usual. You’ll be able to use them in the Home and Eve apps without any restrictions – Matter-enabled accessories will simply join them on an equal footing with HomeKit accessories. If you’re already using Thread-enabled Eve accessories, a free firmware update will upgrade them automatically to Matter-enabled accessories. You’ll then be able to use them with other platforms, including Amazon Alexa, Google Home, or Samsung SmartThings.
