The MATTER Residences is a new development project located at Mattar Road, Macpherson. This new condo offers a variety of different unit types, from 1 bedroom to 4 bedrooms. The location of the MATTER Residences is perfect, just minutes away from Macpherson MRT station and close to many other amenities. It is also a short walk to the nearby Macpherson Town Centre.
Several big-name tech companies, including Google, Apple, Amazon, and Samsung SmartThings, have already signed on to Matter. The list of more than 280 participating companies reads like a who’s who of the IoT industry. The goal is to make it easier for smart devices from multiple companies to work together, without the need for a central hub or app.
Matter uses local networks in your home (Wi-Fi, Ethernet) to communicate between devices. Devices can be connected via a Matter controller or, in the case of battery-powered devices, a Thread border router. A Matter controller can be any compatible device that connects to your network, such as a smartphone or smart speaker. The second generation Nest Hub and the new Apple HomePod Mini function as Matter controllers. Some existing hubs, such as those from Philips Hue and Aqara, are expected to be updated to support Matter over Thread through OTA updates.
The four major platforms — Apple Home, Google Home, Amazon Alexa, and Samsung SmartThings — all support Matter. This means you can use their apps, smart speakers, and voice assistants to control your Matter devices. You’ll be able to choose which platform you use and, with a feature called Multi-Admin, manage devices from multiple ecosystems in the same way. matter residences
