Element is now validated for pre-certification testing, formal testing, and test harness training to the new Matter smart home standard. Our experts are one of the few test and certification laboratories globally to offer guidance and testing.

Announced October 4, 2022, Matter is a new technology, focused around standardizing a unified approach to connecting smart home devices. The Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA), formally the ZigBee Alliance, in conjunction with large smart home device manufacturers is driving this development to create a world where you will be able to purchase a smart device and be confident, after seeing the Matter logo, that it will work seamlessly within your home network ecosystem.


What is the new Matter smart home certification?

The aim of the new standard is to provide user confidence that a Matter Smart Home product can universally communicate with other Matter-enabled products. The vision is to have a stable home ecosystem that comprises devices that use different wireless network protocols such as Wi-Fi and Thread. To facilitate this, we must have a unified standard with which smart products will connect and operate. Following the successful testing of this standard, manufacturers are now able to apply for certification with the CSA. 

As an Authorized Test Laboratory for the CSA, Element can help with both your certification and full compliance requirements. With more than a decade of assisting our clients in gaining certification with the CSA, manufacturers can have the assurance that their products will be tested at the highest quality and integrity.


What devices are subject to Matter certification?

Currently, there is a range of devices that require testing to the new Matter Smart Home Standard, these include, but are not limited to:
  • Lights
  • Sensors
  • Home appliances
