[FAQ] CC2652R7: Matter -- Getting Started Guide

Part Number: CC2652R7

Matter, formerly known as Project Connected Home over IP (CHIP), is a royalty-free connectivity standard developed within the Connectivity Standards Alliance, formerly the Zigbee Alliance. Matter runs on Thread and Wi-Fi® network layers and uses Bluetooth® Low Energy for commissioning. By providing a unified application layer based on proven technologies, manufacturers can leverage this open-source protocol to accelerate their development. Matter also improves compatibility for consumers and enables interoperability across the quickly expanding Internet of Things ecosystem so smart switches, smart hubs and smart thermostats from different manufactures can all work together in a home.

Below is a good place to get started with Matter.

TIP: A Matter device's IPv6 address may be found with the SRP server on the Border Router. This is transparent to the user. But, if you would like to verify, try these commands on the Border Router:

  • sudo ot-ctl
  • srp server service

  • Above, you can see the Matter device's Fabric ID (1760...BF9C) and Node ID (00...4D2).
  • Its associated IPv6 address is fdb1:23d6....:5cd1.
