Apple HomeKit & Matter Standard Support
Dear Simplisafe Management and Development,
It is a market differentiator for products such as a home alarm system to integrate with the market's most popular consumer home automation platforms (Apple Home, Amazon Alexa, Google Home).
I see this subject was discussed in a different thread, but is not allowing me to upvote the subject. Please allow me to +1 this request.
A few of Simpliesafe's competitors have chosen the Matter Standard for this market differentiator and compatibility feature. With the volume of customers on both Apple, Amazon, and Google Home, it's logical to select a single model that achieves cross-compatibility.
The goal of the standard is to make all smart home devices interoperable. That means if you buy a product emblazoned with the Matter logo, you can use it with Amazon Alexa, Apple Home, Google Home, Samsung SmartThings, or any other ecosystem that meets the standard.
Note: I am not affiliated with the Matter Standard in any way. I am a premium Simplisafe subscriber that favors the Simplisafe brand, and would like to see your team succeed.
Currently: I cannot use my Simplisafe Base Station & Alarm System with Apple Home (aka Siri). I would like to possess this capability, as it is an active inconvenience. Thank you for your time and consideration.
