After much fanfare, Matter is finally here! Matter is a new common language for smart home products designed to eliminate compatibility issues and simplify smart device setup. But do you have the Matter devices to take advantage of it? Luckily there are already Matter (and Thread) capable devices ready to be purchased, and many more coming this year. In this article, I’ll list the items that have been announced and give you links to where you can buy them!

This page contains affiliate links. If you purchase an item using an affiliate link I will receive a small commission at no cost to you. Affiliates do not influence my recommendations. Read my disclosures for more information.

Editor’s Note: In short, Matter and Thread are new technologies aimed at making smart homes more accessible, faster, and more reliable for everyone. To learn more about both of these technologies, be sure to read my earlier Matter/Thread explanation article.

Editor’s Note 2: I’ll keep this article updated periodically. The last update was on 4/20/2023.

This article will list devices that currently have Matter and Thread capabilities, as well as ones that have been announced will be getting it. I’ll also include brand-new devices that have been announced.

One thing you see a lot below is the phrase “OTA update.” OTA stands for “over the air” meaning these devices will get an update from the manufacturer over the Internet.

When shopping for Matter compatibility, look for the Matter symbol:

Be sure to also read my article about my early experiences with Matter controllers and devices.

Matter controllers

Matter controllers onboard your devices to your home network and allow you to control them. Some of them come with Thread, which is a mesh-networking protocol for low-bandwidth and battery-powered Matter devices. Again, you can learn more in my Matter overview article.

Smart Home apps with Matter

You’ll need to use the Matter controller’s app (smartphone, tablet) to onboard Matter devices into the ecosystem. The apps connect the Matter devices to the Matter controller.

Matter bridges

Smart home devices that use a bridge (like Philips Hue devices and Lutron) can be connected to Matter via that bridge so that those devices can be controlled by a Matter controller.

Not all Matter controllers support bridges yet, but support is coming soon. Also, not all devices that connect to a Matter bridge will receive Matter support. You’ll have to check for your individual device’s support.
