Now that google added matter support to its control devices, does that negate the need for the google integration?
I have been looking into this, and it seems all the major players claim to be matter compliant, but I still do not see how it is supposed to work, since none of them seem to have a mechanism for adding devices via matter. Am I missing something here?
Either way, from what I have been reading, I believe in theory at least, Hubitat should be able to operate as a bridge between matter and other devices, as well as echo being a bridge between matter and zigbee devices.
It will be interesting to see how this comes to fruition.
I just updated HomeKit to the new architecture which is matter compliant, and it doesn’t find anything on my network other than through the old way of scanning a QR code. Alexa is not yet update, but is supposed to be over the course of this month, so maybe any day now.
Maybe at some point in the future, if Hubitat could use Matter to expose devices to Google Home and they could be integrated that way instead of with a Google-specific integration. Perhaps it will be similar for other integrations, too.
But as of today, no. (And on a related note, has anyone successfully gotten a Matter device into Google? )
I suspect if Matter is implemented in Hubitat, my Hue app will be relegated to just a few features, if even that. At least I hope that is what Matter will do for smart home integration..
