Matter Support Released

It is difficult to say what could be the reason for this instability, without having any statistical or debugging data.

You can experiment with the Matter Bridge driver, it counts the number of the re-initialisations when the Matter device does not respond when pinged. By default, the Ping period is 15 minutes.

Many bulbs and switches, also among currently on-sale devices there are also a few locks and thermostats, RGB strip light controllers, roller shades, an air purifier, motion and light sensors, door/window contact sensors. Lots more that has passed certification, but still not readily available. More complete list of what has passed certification is here: CSA Matter Certified Devices

Recently I got Zemismart Matter Wifi 6-gang Wall Switch and tried to pair HE.
Generic Matter Multi-Endpoint Switch driver has been assigned automatically.
Pairing was OK but nothing working. Is there any other driver for the switch?

Product URL is: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005007203967676.html?spm=a2g0o.order_list.order_list_main.5.6ba11802TYjJpi

The device information in HE:

Controller Type: MAT

Data:

  • endpointId: 01
  • hardwareVersion: 1.0
  • inClusters: 0003,0004,0005,0006,001D,001E
  • isMultiEP: true
  • manufacturer: Zemismart Technology Limited
  • model: Zemismart WiFi Smart Switch
  • outClusters: 0003,0006
  • serialNumber: ce72d13f5dd742f19f5d769891b67f4b
  • softwareVersion: 1.6
  • uniqueId: 70a8366bcd7672df

When I added the switch to Homekit, all six buttons were shown and worked fine.

Switch temporarily to the HE inbuilt 'Device' driver, click on 'Get Info' and post the fingerprints for all endpoints that should appear in the live logs.

Have you refreshed the device web page to see whether the Generic Matter Multi-Endpoint Switch driver has not created 6 child devices?

I got following:

After refreshed no child devices created. Current States section of the device page showed nothing.

Try the Matter Advanced Bridge package, I expect to be working with this device too.

Wow, it's working!
I thought Matter Advanced Bridge was driver only for gateway or hub(like Zemismart M1 matter hub).
So, does it work for any matter-over-wifi devices?

BTW, thanks so much for your help.

Does anyone 'in the know' or on the devlopment team know when Locks will be supported in the Hubitat Matter implementation? I must admit, i dont know if this is a Matter constraint or an HE implementation one - im pretty sure it is the latter?

Is it on the roadmap at all, or is this 'won't implement' ever?

Thanks.

Zemismart is Tuya..... They know I will hunt them down until it works, so they surrendered without a fight this time! :slight_smile:

@bobbyD @support-agent i have a couple of Tapo L535 colour bulbs. Once I finally got them paired to Hubitat, I’ve been really happy with them.

The only issue is the level transitions from Hubitat takes forever! I can literally watch them count up or down 1 increment at a time.

I’ve tried every transition option and they make no difference to the speed. Is there a way to fix this? If I change the levels from HomeKit, the transition is very very quick.

Edit: looks like others are having the same issue:

This is so very funny and so very true!!! :smiley:

Its a known problem with Tapo firmware - not a Hubitat issue (for reference, there's a posting in the HomeAssistant github explaining this issue and how they handled it: Matter (WiFi) bulbs transition very slowly after 2024.3.0 · Issue #113775 · home-assistant/core · GitHub).

It’s strange that it isn’t an issue for Apple homekit or Amazon Alexa.

I don't think Apple or Alexa allow you to control transitions - they just use the device defaults which, as I understand it, are simple brightness transitions. From the HomeAssistant bug reports, it looks like these delay issues occur when there are also transitions specified as part of the color change commands. Not 100% certain - I haven't really experienced the problem myself.

I had a lot of instability on my C8. Unstable to the point it would crash several times a day. Once I disabled Matter, the system regained stability. I don't have the logs but I saw network packets were blasting on neighbor solicitation and advertisement messages. This is part of ipv6 neighbor discovery protocol which I suspect Matter uses.
