Mouser Electronics’ Bench Talk Explores Matter and The Human Interface
Our recent article, The Promises of Matter – A More Connected and Secure World, has highlighted the benefits and exciting features of the Matter protocol. Innovation-seekers are keen to know what the future holds for Matter’s integration. According to Cision PR Newswire, more than 5.5 billion smart-home Matter-compliant devices are set to ship between 2022 and 2030. An increasing number of developers and consumers are identifying the interoperable solutions that Matter provides in connected systems.
Mouser Electronic’s Blog, Bench Talk Blog for Design Engineers, is bringing answers about Matter’s future closer than ever in their recent article, Matter Use Case: The Human Interface. Authored by DigiCert’s Senior Director of IoT and Business Development, Tom Klein, the article discusses how the Matter will impact human interfaces in smart homes and how it allows for seamless communication between various smart home devices, regardless of their brand or operating system. Klein predicts that Matter will be a game-changer for the smart home industry and that human interfaces will play a crucial role in the success of Matter. Manufacturers will need to prioritize intuitive and user-friendly interfaces to ensure that consumers can take full advantage of the new protocol.
Matter Bridges the Gap Between Humans and Technology
The Matter protocol is poised to revolutionize the way humans interact with smart home devices by providing a seamless and unified experience across different devices and platforms. Without Matter, user experience is often fragmented and confusing as smart home devices often require different apps for control. Matter aims to address this issue by creating a common language for smart home devices, allowing them to communicate and work together regardless of the brand or ecosystem they belong to.
With Matter, can control their smart devices using a single app or interface – regardless of whether they are using a smartphone, tablet, or voice assistant. Additionally, Matter can enhance the user experience by enabling natural language voice commands. For example, instead of saying " Turn on the lights in the living room," users can simply say " Turn on the living room lights.”
Mouser’s article also discusses how Matter can improve accessibility and inclusivity. Many smart home devices offer features for individuals with disabilities like voice control for those with limited mobility. However, these features are often limited to specific brands or ecosystems, creating barriers for users with disabilities who may need to use different devices or platforms. Matter's universal standard can help overcome these barriers by providing a consistent and unified interface that can be used across different devices, making smart home technology more accessible for all users.
Providing In-Home Innovation with Matter
Matter holds potential for innovation and collaboration by creating a common standard for smart home devices. The Matter protocol benefits consumers by providing them with a wider range of choices and options when it comes to smart home devices. At the same time, Matter’s adoption encourages healthy competition among manufacturers to improve the quality and functionality of their products.
Bench Talk’s article emphasizes how Matter can revolutionize the human-computer interface for smart home devices. Matter can make smart home technology more intuitive, accessible, and innovative. As the adoption of Matter continues to grow, it has the potential to enhance the way humans interact with smart home devices, making them more user-friendly and convenient for consumers.
