We are delighted to announce that Fresco has joined the Connectivity Standards Alliance to help define the Matter standard for a unified smart kitchen. In joining the Alliance, we strengthen our core mission to reduce fragmentation in connected cooking and more broadly deliver the best possible experience for home cooks and the smart home industry.
At Fresco, we empower appliance manufacturers to deliver the best cooking experience to their customers through greater clarity, confidence, and control in how they use those appliances.
As a hub for many of the home's appliances, the kitchen has always held so much potential in the smart home, yet the promise of a fully integrated connected experience has still not been realized.
As an Alliance member, we hope to tap into this potential alongside Matter. Our mission is to make perfect cooking effortless - a unified, universal user experience across the smart kitchen is key to that. This fits seamlessly into the work Matter is doing to create a standard for connectivity across the whole home.
Announced in 2019, Matter is an Internet Protocol(IP)-based communications standard for smart home technologies that seek to create an open smart home environment where products from diverse manufacturers can communicate and share data, making compatibility issues a thing of the past.
In the past year, over 3,200 experts from more than 280 companies have joined the Alliance to collaborate on creating open-source IoT standards that will transform not only the way we live but spark a movement for a more intuitive world. Thanks to the diverse expertise of members, robust certification programs, and access to a full suite of open IoT solutions, the Alliance is more than prepared to tackle the challenges of a unified smart home system.
"The opportunity for Matter to redefine the smart home space in terms of simplicity, security and interoperability is tremendous," said Chris LaPre, Head of Technology at Connectivity Standards Alliance."Having Fresco join our efforts allows us to further expand our collective wisdom in the smart home space, and particularly in the kitchen-the physical and digital hub of the home. We are happy to have them join the Alliance."
Fresco sees a future where Matter can complement our KitchenOS platform and align with our existing efforts to reduce fragmentation in connected cooking.
Matter's approach of an open standard that supports interoperability through every room in the smart home matches our company's mission. By participating in the Alliance, we hope to contribute to that goal through a team representing decades of smart kitchen experience and IoT experience.
