Matter development checklist


1. Build a Matter-compliant device.

2. Choose one of the VIDs and one of the PIDs that are allocated for testing purposes. After the Matter specification is officially published, register with the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA) to get your own unique Vendor ID (VID) and Product ID (PID).

3. Connect your device and enable setup in your app, Android app, or Google Home app (GHA).

Test & Field Trial

4. Test your Matter integrations before you submit for Certification.

5. Perform a Field Trial, if required, before you submit for Certification.

Certify & Launch
