TP-Link Tapo Integrates with Matter to Simplify the Future of Smart Homes
September 15, 2022 – Tapo, a TP-Link Smart Home brand and global provider of reliable smart home devices and accessories, today announced support for Matter, a connectivity standard for seamless communication among IoT devices. By adopting this new standard, Tapo continues to deliver on its adherence to providing users with simple, reliable, and secure control of their smart homes. Tapo Matter-compatible products are expected to be announced in late Q4 this year.
Matter is a new, open-source connectivity standard developed by over 200 companies worldwide, including Apple, Google, Amazon, Samsung, and other Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA) members. Built on a common goal of unifying the smart home ecosystem, Matter enables smart home devices and platforms from different manufacturers to work together seamlessly. Users will benefit from increased interoperability in setup, updates, and control across IoT devices.
As a member of CSA, TP-Link Tapo will be one of the first companies to release Matter-certified offerings following the debut of the Matter protocol in late 2022. New Matter-compatible products across a broad range of categories, including plugs, switches, bulbs, and hubs, will be available by the end of this year. Tapo will also bring to market a new version of the Tapo App with support for Matter, allowing users to integrate all Matter-supported devices within one ecosystem.
Tapo has been devoted to creating customer-centric, reliable, and quality smart home products that provide users with secure, smart, and easy experiences. Sharing the same vision of simplifying connectivity as Matter, Tapo's support for the new standard demonstrates its ongoing commitment to users' benefits.
An offshoot of TP-Link, Tapo was founded to engage in the small intelligent appliances market, helping people adopt a new smart home lifestyle at an affordable cost. Tapo possesses insightful industry awareness and reliable production practices, offering market-leading specs and functionality.
