Tuya Smart Launches Its Latest Solutions that will support Matter for Global Customers – PR Newswire
NEW YORK, Aug. 31, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — “Is there a way to simply use one app to control all of the smart devices in my home? I don’t want to have just one brand or download different apps to control multiple devices.” Up until now, this has been the common plight of many smart home users, constantly struggling with the inability to interconnect devices from different brands and ecosystems, across different protocols.
Tuya Smart (hereinafter called Tuya) (NYSE: TUYA, HKEX: 2391), a global IoT development platform service provider, has been expanding its commitment to promoting universal open standards that enable IoT products to securely connect and interact.
And this is where Matter comes in. Matter is a communication and application layer connection protocol by the Connectivity Standards Alliance (the Alliance), supported by over 280 companies, including Google, Amazon, Apple, and other early participants like Tuya.
The goal of Matter is to solve the fragmentation problem in the smart home industry by building a unified ‘language’ to eliminate the compatibility issues between different product ecosystems. Thus, it is also Tuya’s mission to have users enjoy a unified and integrated application without worrying about the interaction between varying communication protocols across different devices.
On August 25th, Tuya officially launched its latest product solutions that will support Matter, which will enable global customers to become part of the first group to leverage the Matter protocols and help them to seize business opportunities in the smart home industry.
Tuya’s second episode of the video series, ‘What’s It For’ clearly demonstrates the features and value of Tuya’s built-for-Matter solutions. ‘What’s It For’ is a popular column created by Tuya this year, which helps makes relatively complex technological concepts and knowledge simple to understand for those who don’t share an extensive technology background.
Here are the main requests from manufacturers regarding Matter devices:
Request I: To seize business opportunities faster. The biggest concern of manufacturers is that the time frame of development and certification is too long. Tuya’s solutions that will support Matter solve this problem by providing a quick process for product development and certification. In the future, Tuya will create a one-stop development platform, similar to that already available for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Zigbee, to help customers complete the development of Matter devices cost-effectively.
Request II: To enable more categories to connect to Matter devices. So far, the Matter protocol cannot support every category of smart device. Allowing more device categories to connect to Matter will enable manufacturers to build up complete smart scenes and automations to better assist users in making decisions.
Tuya will not only provide customers with a Bridge Hub, but also other hubs such as those for Central Control, Smart Speaker Hub, and Multi-Protocol interaction, which help customers realize the automatic interconnection between Matter devices and non-Matter devices within the local network.
Request III: To break the restrictions of LAN and realize cloud-based device management. Matter is a communication protocol based on LAN, rather than cloud-based device control. To match users’ expectations for remotely-controllable scenes, by connecting the Powered by Tuya App to Tuya IoT PaaS, users can realize remote control and operate smart devices from different brands such as Google, Amazon, and …….
