Support for Smart Home standard - Matter

Post by mbarnstijn »

It would be really cool to support Matter in an update to Madrix. I would be most interested in allowing Matter-enabled user interface devices to provide control input to a Madrix system.

Full disclosure: I have a mui board (a really amazing "calm" UI device, search mui labs inc.) that is going to receive a Matter update for controlling various things like lighting and music. I have it mounted near the door into a new building, and would like to use it to turn on the overhead lights in that entry room. Said overhead lights are actually a 25x23 foot, 76x70 pixel display controlled by Madrix to provide general lighting or specialized effects for art or task lighting.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Hi mbarnstijn,

Welcome to the MADRIX forum. Thank you for your request!

For now you can use HTTP remote in order to control MADRIX 5 remotely with a building management system.

Here you will find the HTTP documentation with all available commands:

Apart from HTTP there are a couple of other options for remote control, please find a complete list here:

Thanks, @Schulze. I am aware of the existing Madrix remote control capabilities.

My specific use case (mui board) does not implement anything that can interface with those capabilities.

That's why I put in a Wish for a future upgrade to Madrix to support the new Smart Home industry's standard for control and interoperability: "Matter". All of the major control device and lighting device manufacturers will be implementing support for Matter.

I look forward to seeing Madrix's plan for contributing to this new interoperability system.

Thank you for your attention.

Sincerely,
