ZMatter! Z-Wave+ | Matter Module for Polisy (beta)
INSTEON got you down? Z-Wave range and limited functionality issues? Want to Future-Proof your Polisy with Zigbee/Matter support? Our ZMatter board is the answer!
Start enjoying the enhanced range afforded by high caliber external antennas (on the sides) in conjunction with SiLab’s 700 series Z-Wave and Zigbee/Matter radios.
No more tapping and dancing to get a device to include! Just use UD Mobile to scan Smart Start QR code for your device, and watch it seamlessly appear and start working.
S2 secure devices are now supported so you can rest assured that your devices and communications are secure.
Improved Scene Support
Although Z-Wave scenes are not as impressive as INSTEON, but with this new implementation, they come much closer. So, instead of using programs, give them a try!
Easy migration from 994 500 Series and Zooz 700 series dongle
Migration from your 994 is as easy as backup/restore. All your Z-Wave devices will be migrated to ZMatter board*. For those with Zooz 700 series dongle, the migration process is as easy.
For those who have not yet migrated their 994s to Polisy, now is the time and here are the instructions.
*Some devices may require manual intervention especially if they support S2.
Future Proof Your Polisy
Although Matter products are not yet available, we are closely monitoring and implementing features as they become available. In the meantime, we will try supporting regular Zigbee devices and then operate in dual Zigbee/Matter mode once Matter is available.
Get Some Money Back!
If you ordered a Zooz 700 Series dongle from us, you may return it for a full refund (if Express shipping, up to $12). Please send your invoice to firstname.lastname@example.org.

I have the Polisy without the antenna. Will I need to purchase a new Polisy?

I like the idea of having secure com within my system. There are a couple of programmers a house or two away who I think from time to time are trying to attack the RF on my system. It’s also great to have a single unit no matter what control brand I choose. When X-10 disappeared once before I moved to Insteon. It’s nice to know I can keep Wave in my back pocket if Insteon doesn’t make it out of the ER for good.

Hi Ron, NO!!!

I don’t suppose I can get any credit for a Zooz 700 dongle I purchased from Amazon when y’all didn’t have any in stock…..

Hey, Michael! Happy Thanksgiving! I just purchased ZMatter. I’m still running both ISY and Polisy at my home, as I haven’t had time / energy to manually re-add all of my zwave devices to the Polisy device. Is it true that, with ZMatter, I should just be able to backup/restore and then (hopefully with minimal manual intervention) “end of life” my ISY hardware and move forward using only the Polisy hardware? Thanks!

Yes, that’s right. The only thing that you might want to consider is if your OS is too old. In that case, you will have the following options:

Hey, Michael. I’m a little confused. I received the Zmatter board today, installed it, and followed the directions (I think?) but (a) I don’t have the drop down for Z-wave version as shown in the picture above, and (b) none of my z-wave devices migrated over. I’m not wondering if I had the wrong ISY to do this from, as I’m not thinking I had a Z-wave “dongle” – rather, I had the Z-wave module installed in the ISY. In any case, I ran the Z-wave backup on the ISY before I shut it down, but there was no step where I restored the Z-wave. I’m sure I’m doing something stupid here. Any thoughts? If I’m not seeing the drop down menu, did the Z-matter board not install correctly? Thanks!

One additional comment – I did some additional research, and I apparently do have the Z-wave dongle in my ISY – that is what you were calling the little Z-wave daughterboard. So, how do I back up the Z-wave devices on the ISY and restore them to Z-matter? Again, apologies for being stupid here. I’ll keep looking on the forum pages. Thanks!

I have had this board for a while now, do you have any idea on when Zigbee/Matter support will be available?
