The number of smart home devices supporting the Matter smart home standard is increasing daily. Now, two new devices from Neo, a Chinese company, have been added, which already offers a Matter-compatible power outlet.
Both the contact sensor and the motion detector use Thread for communication. This protocol is known for its high energy efficiency and ensures a particularly reliable connection through a mesh network that also offers extensive coverage.
Previous models use Micro-USB
What sets the new sensors apart is their power source. Users can choose between battery operation and permanent USB power.
Previous Zigbee models from the manufacturer come with a Micro-USB port. Currently, we cannot confirm whether the Matter devices will ultimately use Micro-USB or possibly switch to USB-C.
We will keep you updated. In HomeDevices, you can find the current selection of HomeKit motion detectors, which you can also easily filter for Matter-compatible devices.
