The 11 best smart home products that support Matter

This case is probably the biggest thing to happen since the beginning of smart homes. The interoperability feature lets devices from different ecosystems interact with each other, giving you the freedom to shop for your favorite products regardless of the manufacturer. Unfortunately, not all devices have launched support for Matter – and not all of them will.

A few notable products support Matter to date, though dozens more products are expected to add the functionality in the coming months. For now, here are the 11 best smart home products that support Matter. For the full list, visit the official Matter website.

  • dense footprint

  • Sound quality greatly improved

  • The watch shows more useful information

  • new temperature sensor

Amazon has brought Matter support to a number of devices recently, but the Echo Dot with Clock is arguably one of the most exciting.

Not only does it look good, but the simplified HUD allows you to quickly check the time or get the current weather forecast. Toss in the case and the availability of different color options, and it’s easy to see why the Echo Dot with Clock is one of the best smart speakers.

Nest Hub (2nd generation)


  • accurate sleep tracking

  • Lots of data about your sleep

  • $100 starting price


  • Some new features compared to the previous model

Like Amazon, Google pushed the Matter update for many of its devices to late 2022. The Nest Hub was included in that wave of updates, giving the popular smart display the ability to interact with other Nest devices. Google Assistant is as powerful as ever, and the vibrant 7-inch display lets you stream your favorite show, load your calendar, play music, or get a quick tutorial on how to cook a new recipe.

  • Huge 15.6 inch screen

  • Widget functionality makes it easy to see tasks, smart home, and more at a glance

Do you need something a little bigger than your standard smart display? Check out the Amazon Echo Show 15, which has a gorgeous 15-inch display and fully supports Materia.

  • easy to use

  • lots of versatility

  • sleek design

Now that Eve supports Door and Window Sensor Matter, keeping your home secure has never been easier. In addition to knowing whether your doors (or windows) are open or closed, you can trigger various events based on their state – like turning on lights or turning off your furnace. You’ll need to join the Early Access program to use the features, but that’s a small inconvenience for a lot of smart home tech.

Apple HomePod Mini Review out of 12

apple homepod mini


  • Optimizes the computational audio experience

  • Clear sounding highs and mids

  • The compact size makes it different

  • This is the most affordable HomeKit home hub


  • Siri lacks advanced intelligence like its competitors

  • short power cord

Another entry in this list, another smart speaker to discuss. This range of products has been extensively updated to support Matter, as they serve as the central hub for most smart homes. The Apple HomePod mini complements the big three (Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri), giving you the option to use either ecosystem as the hub of your Smart-connected smart home. Siri may not be as versatile as competitors, but there’s no doubt that iOS fans will be happy to find the new functionality introduced by Matter.

  • great sound quality

  • incredible bass performance

  • dazzling spatial audio surround

  • plug and play wireless

  • sleek design


  • limited connection options

  • No direct Spotify playback

Take everything that makes the HomePod mini so great, combine them with a bigger design and better speakers, and you’ve created the new HomePod. The latest member of Apple’s smart home family offers full support for Matter, making it a great central pillar for anyone looking to tie together a connected network of devices. Beyond matter, you’ll benefit from high-fidelity audio powered by a four-inch high-excursion woofer, five tweeters, and spatial audio, along with room sensing to optimize performance based on the acoustics of your home. It’s not cheap, costing $299, but few Matter products are as powerful and versatile as the HomePod.
