Today, they are tested within the Apple ecosystem, using one Apple Home Pod and the Apple Home kit, on devices updated to iOs 16.1 (or later) and iPadOS 16. Major software companies, such as Amazon and Google are in the process of developing control application also for Android devices, and companies such as Legrand or Lutron are also part of the Matter alliance, and will soon launch their matter compatible control solutions.

DO WE NEED A WI-FI NETWORK FOR OUR PRODUCTS TO FUNCTION?
Yes, Prolicht Matter Certified light fittings require a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi network to take full advantage of Matter possibilities. Without network, they can be managed as standard on/off light fitting.
WHAT HAPPENS IF TH WI-FI NETWORK DISAPPEARS?
If, after commissioning the Prolicht Matter Certified light fittings, the Wi-Fi network is disconnected, they are programmed to go in protection mode: all luminaires dimmed below 50% go up to 50% dimming, and all luminaires dimmed 50% or more remain at the dim level they are. With this setting a minimum light quantity is ensured in all spaces controlled with Matter.
WHY IS PROLICHT USING A WI-FI CONNECTION?
Prolicht Matter Certified light fittings are managed by Matter software through a Wi-Fi solution, as this technology allows better connection, better transmission power and fast reaction time, also with longer distances.

WHAT HAPPENS IF A PROLICHT MATTER LIGHT FITTING IS INSTALLED AND NOT COMMISIONED?
Prolicht Matter light fittings are programmed to be easily recognized before commissioning, therefore, once switched on, they blink for 60 seconds, giving a visual feedback for the commissioning procedure. If the commissioning is not done, every time they are switched on they will blink for 60 seconds, and then go to 100% power.
WILL PROLICHT MATTER CERTIFIED LIGHT FITTINGS' FIRLMWARE BE UPDATED "OVER THE AIR" ONCE THE PRODUCTS ARE DEPLOYED?
Yes, firmware updates will be spread over the air by the control application chosen in the installation.
HOW DO I RESET THE LUMINAIRE?
