Midea has released its first Matter-certified appliance, a version of the Midea U – the world’s first U-shaped inverter window air conditioner. Matter is the Connectivity Standards Alliance’s (CSA) initiative to ensure smart connectivity is both straightforward and dependable. Matter-certified devices communicate seamlessly through a universal standard for connectivity, promoting unity, security and speed.

“In January of 2022, we expressed our support of Matter as we were confident it would drive product excellence and cultivate more efficient smart homes,” said Kurt Jovais, president of Midea America, Corp. “Today, with the launch of our first Matter-certified product, we see this vision materialize.”

Matter-certified products ease major pain points for consumers. Having the Matter badge entails having the same setup process as other Matter-certified products, protection of home networks through one of the most secure connectivity standards in the market, and local WiFi network connectivity for speed and reliability. Matter enables smart devices to communicate regardless of their specific network protocols or ecosystems.

The innovative design of the Midea U allows consumers to open and close their windows after installation, ensuring ultra-quiet operation as low as 32 dB. This is achieved as the design effectively insulates operating and compressor noises. Based on ISO 3744 testing, nine Midea U units generate less noise than some standalone traditional units. Furthermore, the Midea U was the first window AC to receive the ENERGY STAR Most Efficient 2020 certification, with over 35 percent energy savings compared to regular air conditioners

“With the release of our first Matter-certified window AC, which is also the first on the market, Midea continues to spearhead innovative solutions,” said Patrick Serrato, head of IoT, Midea America, Corp. “By offering a Matter-certified product, we reaffirm our commitment to providing reliable and user-friendly home appliances.”
