Eindhoven, the Netherlands – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, is certifying all of its WiZ products Matter-compatible. WiZ will be among the first loT brands to support the Matter standard. Pioneering Matter is another major step in delivering on the WiZ mission to make smart lighting accessible for everyone and more meaningful in daily life.
Matter: an industry-unifying standard
The Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA), formerly the Zigbee Alliance, created the Matter standard as a means of bringing to market interoperable products that work across brands and platforms with greater privacy, security, and simplicity.
WiZ is deeply committed to Matter and will make its full portfolio compatible, including lights and smart plugs. This is to continue delivering on our promise of bringing the most intuitive user experience and secure connectivity to our users. All new WiZ smart lighting products will have the Matter logo on their packaging beginning in H2 2023 for easy recognition by consumers. Once Matter certification is completed, all products manufactured since Q2 2021 will receive an over-the-air (OTA) firmware update to become part of the Matter ecosystem. This includes products purchased previously and already installed. WiZ has started certifying its full product portfolio, including lights and smart plugs, to work with Matter. The certification effort is expected to be completed by end of 2022.

Now that the WiZ platform supports Matter, all our "Connected by WiZ" partners (companies who embed WiZ technology in their own branded products) can easily certify their products to work with Matter. Philips Smart LED is expected to have its full portfolio certified by end of 2022.
