Matter development checklist


Tools to help you start building

1. Build a Matter-enabled device.

2. Register with the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA) to get your own unique Vendor ID (VID) and Product ID (PID). If you do not have your own VID or PID, choose one that is allocated for testing purposes. To use a production VID for an integration, the production VID must be verified and allowlisted.

  • For existing Cloud-to-cloud devices, implement deduplication using the same project ID.

  • If you migrated your project from Actions on Google, revise your company profile in the Actions on Google Console.

Android SDKs for pairing and control

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