Custom Matter Blinds and Shades

Matter blinds and shades


updated March 6, 2024

Matter smart blinds and shades are the future of the smart home. The tech industry's most prominent names are all on board to support the new smart home standard, Matter. OmniaBlinds smart blinds and shades powered by Eve MotionBlinds have Thread support and is Matter certified.

Matter is considered a game-changer for the smart home industry because it intends to solve the complications around compatibility. This has been stopping the smart home industry from becoming mainstream because of the hustle of figuring out what works with what.

One standard will also be beneficial for the manufacturers as they only need to support Matter instead of several platforms.

Matter thread smart blinds and shades will simplify things 

The goal of Matter is to make things a lot easier for consumers. It will be an interoperability protocol, or application layer, with standard data models that ensure smart home devices can work across different types of smart home ecosystems. 

Thread is a new networking protocol that makes Matter work better by making it easier and faster to connect smart devices to your home. It works alongside your home Wi-Fi network while also extending your network’s reach and making it more reliable.

Seamless communication

Control your Matter thread smart blinds and shades with the smart home app of your choice because they will work with whatever Matter device you prefer. It will not matter if its Apple, Samsung or Google, you decide. 

This is what Matter intends to do for you which makes OmniaBlinds motorized blinds powered by Eve MotionBlinds future-proof as they supports Matter out of the box. Which means that you can connect OmniaBlinds not only with Apple Home but Google, Amazon and Smartthings aswell.

How does Matter work?

Matter, built on the internet protocol IPv6, takes an open-source development approach leveraging proven technologies. Including Apple Home, Google, Amazon, and the Connectivity Alliance (former Zigbee Alliance). 

At launch, it will run on top of Thread, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet. Bluetooth will be used for commissioning and adding devices to your Matter network. Battery-operated devices will typically use Thread because it's a low-energy protocol specially created for the smart home. 

Matter is, by design, secure because it communicates locally very much as HomeKit does. This also means that Matter-certified blinds and shades will not require any cloud communication. That said it is optional to add cloud-dependent services if you choose to do so.

What about my existing smart home?

Many smart homes use Zigbee or other technologies, but fortunately, one of the devices supported by Matter is bridges. Which means that the manufacturers can roll out a firmware update to their bridges, and all child accessories can communicate with the bridge, for example, your Matter-certified shades.

Should I choose Matter-certified blinds and shades? 

If you intend to create a smart home that can connect to any other Matter device we highly recommend that you choose Matter blinds and shades.
