The development of Matter is ongoing, with progress varying across platforms. Different ecosystems may support different features for TP-Link Matter-certified devices. To support a feature, it requires the support of device firmware and compatibility with the device categories and functions defined by third-party ecosystems. For example, Matter does not support the camera category now, which is expected to be compatible until the Matter 1.2 version is released.

The following table lists the features currently supported by different ecosystems.

Notes:

(1) The supported features are subject to change as Matter continues to develop.

(2) SmartThings Energy monitoring (√*): Please reset your Matter energy monitoring plug, then follow the FAQ to start the Energy function in SmartThings.
