Matter is a new smart home standard that makes it easier for your gadgets to work with each other and with whatever platform you want to control them from – from Amazon Alexa and Google Home to Apple Home and Samsung SmartThings.
Matter devices need a Matter controller and those using Thread – a protocol that runs Matter – need a Thread border router. Black Friday is the perfect time to buy one of the many gadgets that have this functionality built in for a bargain price.
