About 'ATOM Hub for Home Assistant' device with upcoming Matter-ready Hub for Home Assistant:
“With "ATOM Hub for Home Assistant", ClodPi Labs starts on another new voyage onboard with many people by enabling smarter living thereby improving everyday life. With Matter protocol-ready hardware and compatible with Home Assistant's OS, ATOM Hub is built to seamlessly integrate with cross-platform devices. And to add more, it is compatible with Home Assistant latest user-friendly application for smart device onboarding and configuration.”
Know 'Matter' standard:
In December 2019 - Amazon, Apple, Google, Samsung SmartThings and the Zigbee Alliance announced the collaboration and formation of the working group of Project Connected Home over IP. The project aims to simplify development for smart home product brands and manufacturers while increasing the compatibility of the products for consumers. With ClodPi Labs targeting for a November ATOM Hub launch, we are expecting a lot and lots of supported devices from various brands of SMART Devices.
The standard is based on Internet Protocol (IP) and works through one or several compatible border routers, avoiding the use of multiple proprietary hubs. Matter products run locally and do not rely on an internet connection, although the standard is designed to talk to the cloud easily. It is intended to enable cross-platform of smart home devices, mobile apps, and cloud services, and defines a specific set of IP-based networking technologies for device certification.
One of the underlying technologies Matter is using to enable that is Thread. We’ve already seen a number of smart device companies adopt Thread like Apple with HomePod mini, Belkin, Nanoleaf, Eve, and many more.
ClodPi Labs - ATOM Hub majorly features WiFi, Zigbee, and Thread radios for connectivity. Has Power, two USB-C, Ethernet and a Reset (RST) port on the backside. The front side shows a generic look with two LEDs showing Power and Internet status with ClodPi Labs logo.
