Matter 1.3 pushes the standard into your kitchen, laundry room and garage

The Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA) has rolled out version 1.3 of Matter, giving smart home brands another opportunity to extend their technology to the kitchen and other areas of the home. One of the cornerstones of the update is the ability to control important, even essential, home appliances. This includes ovens and stoves.

With the former, owners can check “oven status,” such as whether it is preheating or cooling, and monitor its operation. You can ask the appliance to start grilling the ribs placed inside. Cookers will benefit from a similar level of control. Users can turn it on or change the temperature remotely.
