Matter is the foundation for connected things. This industry-unifying standard has a promise of reliable, secure connectivity – a seal of approval that devices will work seamlessly together, today, and tomorrow – guided by the Connectivity Standards Alliance, whose members come together from across industries to transform the future of connectivity. After being among the first companies to achieve Matter certification for an air conditioner and to demonstrate a Matter-connected fan purifier, Midea continues to show its commitment to the industry-unifying standard with the demonstration of the first Matter-connected dishwasher.

«At Midea – said Patrick Serrato, head of IoT at Midea America Corp. and Alliance board member – we are focused on creating surprisingly-friendly smart products that are not just smart for the sake of being smart but offer real benefits. Allowing users to seamlessly operate their Midea smart home appliances in tandem with other third parties through the Matter standard is at the heart of that. We started out last year with one of the first Matter certified air conditioners, followed that up by presenting one of the first Matter connected fan purifiers earlier this year, and now we are demonstrating the first Matter connected dishwasher. We are committed to Matter and we will continue until all our product categories are Matter certified.»

The Midea dishwasher offers a fast and secure setup that is unified so users can follow the same process to get connected no matter whether it is their dishwasher, lightbulb, or door lock. Once set up, the dishwasher will be able to connect with other devices that support Matter in the rest of the home regardless of brand.
