Does Matter matter?

Matter is the universal smart home compatibility standard across platforms, much like Bluetooth is for headphones. While the technology has been around for a while, it's been a pretty slow rollout. We anticipate that sometime soon, dimmer switches will all adopt Matter, in which case HomeKit compatibility won't really matter anymore.
