FAQs

WHAT IS MATTER?

Matter is  a new industry-unifying standard to connect compatible devices and systems with one another in a secure, reliable, and seamless sway.

 

HOW CAN I CONTROL PROLICHT MATTER LIGHT FITTINGS?

All certified Matter controllers can be used for this purpose, such as Amazon Alexa, Apple Ipad, Apple Iphone, Apple HomePod, Google smartphones, etc. If there are further Matter-certified controllers in the future, these will also be able to automatically control all Matter devices in a network. Customers have complete flexibility in their choice of controller and can change this at any time without having to make major changes to the existing smart home.

 

CAN I CONTROL THE LUMINAIRE WITH DIFFERENT SOFTWARE (APPLE HOME, ALEXA, GOOGLE)?

Currently, PROLICHT's Matter-enabled luminaires are tested with the Apple, Google and Amazon (Alexa) ecosystem controls. Other open Matter-certified solutions will soon be available that are compatible with both Apple and Android devices.

 

IS IT POSSIBLE TO USE PHYSICAL CONTROLS FOR THE MATTER LIGHTING?

PROLICHT Matter-enabled luminaires can be managed by traditional electromechanic on/off controls.
Soon it will be possible to find on the market physical smart switch Matter Certified, that will allow the Matter experience.

 

DO I NEED A HOME POD?

Today, a local control unit (Home Pod, Amazon Alexa, Google Nest ...) is used to manage Matter devices, including PROLICHT Matter-enabled luminaires. In the future, different solutions will be available.

 

DO WE NEED A WI-FI NETWORK FOR OUR PRODUCTS TO FUNCTION?

Yes, PROLICHT Matter-enabled luminaires 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-enabled luminaires, 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-enabled luminaires 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.

 

DO WE NEED INTERNET CONNECTION FOR OUR PRODUCTS TO FUNCTION?

Today, an Internet connection is required for the control unit (e.g. Homepod) so that PROLICHT Matter-enabled luminaires can be controlled via voice control or mobile apps. It is not necessary if you only operate them afterwards with an on/off switch. In general, the control devices do not require an internet connection to control Matter-enabled luminaires.

 

WHAT HAPPENS IF POWER GOES OFF AND THEN COMES BACK ON?

PROLICHT Matter-enabled luminaires memorize the last status before power off, and are programmed to come back to the same status when power comes back on.

 

HOW DO I COMMISSION MY LUMINAIRE?

PROLICHT Matter-enabled luminaires can be put into operation with the most common systems. (Apple Home, Google Home, Amazon Alexa, Samsung Smart Things). In the future, more and more control applications will offer the same function.

 

WHAT HAPPENS IF A PROLICHT MATTER LIGHT FITTING IS INSTALLED AND NOT COMMISIONED?

PROLICHT Matter-enabled luminaires are programmed so that they are easy to recognize before commissioning. As soon as they are switched on, they flash for 15 seconds, providing visual feedback for commissioning. If commissioning is not carried out, they flash for 15 seconds each time they are switched on and then go to 100% power.

 

HOW DO I RESET THE LUMINAIRE?

PROLICHT Matter-enabled luminaires are programmed to be reset to factory value after being switched off/on for 10 consecutive times: when they are reset, luminaires will start blinking, waiting for new commissioning.
