Stuttgart – In line with our guiding principle "Invented for Life", Bosch strives to create technical product solutions that make our users' lives easier. Bosch is now pursuing this aim through the new Matter connection standard, to satisfy our customer's need for the simplest smart home solution possible. For this reason, Matter is being actively endorsed by Bosch and will be gradually integrated into all relevant product from 2023 onwards.

Under the CSA, hundreds of companies including Apple, Google and Amazon, are working to establish a common wireless protocol in the form of Matter. This simplifies the interoperability of smart home devices from different manufacturers as well as the standardization of setup and update processes.

The intention is to further reduce the complexity of the smart home and thus enable the use of basic applications (such as simple operation of devices) from the user's preferred smart home app.

To further meet individual customer needs, Bosch will also provide complete solutions in the form of apps and advanced applications (such as preconfigured services). "We are pleased to be a part of the CSA and are now further expanding our involvement in Matter", said Tanja Rückert, Chief Digital Officer of the Bosch Group.

said Tanja Rückert, Chief Digital Officer of the Bosch Group.

In this context, Bosch is now increasingly contributing its comprehensive knowledge to the definition of Matter standards for various device classes (e.g. security, kitchen appliances or energy management) and their applications. In all relevant Bosch corporate divisions that offer solutions for smart homes or connected home appliances, work is already underway to ensure that end devices and apps can support Matter as soon as possible.

In 2023, Matter-compatible Bosch Smart Home devices will be the front runners, closely followed by the overarching smart home management app "Home Connect Plus" and products from Bosch Thermotechnik GmbH.

Other company segments and offers will follow in due course.

Bosch is convinced that Matter will be the future standard for smart home products and will give the market a significant push.
