Glow CAD and Matter
First of all belated kudos to Hildebrand for being I believe the first brand in the UK to provide local access to Smart Meter data. (Most other brands at the time required re-downloading your own data from their cloud servers.)
I do have a query about future plans. With Matter becoming the holy grail of a universal smart home standard I was wondering if you had any plans to add support for Matter. I suspect that right now the Matter standard is still not ready and able to even partially support the capabilities you provide but if and when it becomes even partially capable will you begin adding Matter support?
For those unaware of some of the history behind smart meters, they are a rare example of government led forward thinking. One of the originally proposed capabilities was for home appliances to be able to 'talk' to a smart meter and directly discover when cheaper energy was available and then schedule their operation to take advantage of that. Whilst there are smart energy tariffs to make this possible, and I believe this information is provided to IHD devices, I am not sure any home appliances in the UK take direct advantage of this.
The original plan was that smart home appliances would connect to the same Zigbee based HAN - Home Area Network that the smart meter, IHD and CAD form. I felt that requiring home appliances to implement this special type of network was unlikely to take off although this might be happening in some EU countries. (Germany?)
I am therefore hoping that the Glow IHD/CAD if it implements Matter at some point in a suitable way might be able to contribute to then talking to smart home appliances also via Matter and Matter controllers and thereby enable this sort of automation in a way more likely to be more widely adopted. At a minimum you might be able to use Matter compatible smart power sockets that are already available from several companies.
