The seamless smart home is coming
What is Matter
Promoted by the Connectivity Standard Alliance (CSA), Matter is an industry-unifying, open-source connectivity standard that promises to enable seamless communication among IoT devices across platforms, regardless of manufacturers.
This upcoming protocol will alleviate the fragmentation of the smart home market to unify smart home ecosystems.
More Compatibility, More Interoperability
Incompatibility between IoT devices has been complicating user experience in the smart home market. Now with Matter, certified devices from different brands can recognize each other and work together seamlessly across platforms. Using just one app to control all IoT devices is no longer a fantasy. You can use the new Tapo/Kasa app to integrate all your Matter devices or control your Matter-certified Tapo/Kasa products in any Matter ecosystem you prefer.

What TP-Link Offers
TP-Link further opens up the ecosystem to improve compatibility for users.
First to Release
TP-Link is one of the first companies to introduce Matter-certified products to market following the debut of the Matter protocol in Fall 2022.
The Tapo and Kasa apps will upgrade to be Matter-compatible. Soon, our users can use the apps to control a variety of Matter-certified products, regardless of manufacturers.
New Matter Control hubs are already on the way so that users can utilize the hubs to operate all Matter devices. Through the bridge function on the hubs, Tapo's new sensors will be able to work seamlessly with Matter devices.
As a LAN (Local Area Network) standard, Matter has the flaw of not supporting the remote operation of IoT devices, and TP-Link’s smart apps address this issue by offering remote control functionality (currently only applicable to Tapo and Kasa products).
