Why Deyi’s Matter Motor Utilize Matter Over Thread Rather Than Over WIFI?


Matter Over Thread empowers Deyi's Matter Motor, utilizing the cutting-edge Matter over Thread protocol. Seamlessly integrated with popular smart home platforms like Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and SmartThings, this technology ensures worry-free compatibility and harmony among devices.

Unlike traditional setups, Thread establishes a mesh network where lights, thermostats, outlets, sensors, and more communicate directly, without the need for a bridge. If a device fails, data packets effortlessly relay to the next in the mesh, enhancing network resilience. Thread's advantages, including robust mesh technology and exceptional energy efficiency, make it a standout choice for creating a seamless smart home experience with Matter Over Thread.

Compared with Matter Over Wifi, there are some distinctive feature for Matter Over Thread:

1. Versatility in Power Supply


Thread was crafted to facilitate the seamless responsiveness of both mains-powered and battery-operated devices, regardless of network size and density. In contrast, WiFi devices are less suitable for battery-powered applications.


2. Low Power Consumption


Significantly prolonging the battery life, this feature is especially advantageous for battery-operated smart devices such as blinds/shades(motors),sensors, locks, and more.



3. Robust, self-healing network


Thread employs a mesh network architecture in which Thread devices assume the roles of routers, efficiently relaying messages among them. This design eliminates the vulnerability of a single point of failure, a common issue with WiFi networks that rely on a central router.

Thanks to this characteristic, when a Thread device experiences a failure or goes offline, the Thread network automatically heals itself. In contrast, a loss of WiFi connectivity results in all WiFi devices going offline.

In a Matter Over Thread network, if one device encounters a malfunction, the next device seamlessly takes over, ensuring uninterrupted operation. Thread's scalability is another strength, as it grows stronger and more resilient with each new device added, in contrast to WiFi networks that become increasingly challenging to manage as the number of connected devices increases.



4. Greater Scalability


Thread offers support for several hundred devices within a single network, with each device capable of having multiple IPv6 addresses. In contrast, WiFi networks support a limited number of devices that can connect to a router, with each device assigned only one IP address.

The more Thread-enabled devices there are, the stronger the local connections become. Conversely, with WiFi devices, an increase in their number leads to a more crowded network.
