SmartThings and Matter


but what about Thread? :roll_eyes:

Will the built-in hubs have any low-power wireless radios, as the standalone hubs do? What about Thread?

*Low-power wireless protocols are a crucial part of the Matter standard . . . *

SmartThings Hubs will not act as a Matter bridge, so non-Matter devices will not be bridged or exposed to other Matter controllers.

UGH! This right here proves why Matter will end up being a failure, just like every other attempt to make an β€œopen” standard. The manufacturers are still trying to bank on ecosystem lock-in to sell their devices.
