It looks like Matter is really starting to take off. Support from all the major players:


Sad that it took until 2022 for this to happen! I think Wink is really what kickstarted this all & showed the potential of DIY smarthomes! Over 200 companies have signed up for Matter, including Apple, Samsung, and Amazon & more than 190 devices are currently finalizing certification this quarter. Really really neat stuff & VERY good news for smarthome DIY'ers!
