Onvis has officially released their new U.S smart plug with Matter on Amazon. This smart plug differs from most of the recently announced Matter-certified smart plugs in that it uses Thread instead of Wi-Fi. Thread is considered far superior to Wi-Fi and is the preferred communication protocol for Matter-certification.
The Onvis S4 Smart Plug has launched with a much lower price point than the only other Matter over Thread smart plug on the market – the Eve Energy Smart Plug. The 1-Pack is listed at $19.99, the 2-Pack is listed at $36.99, and the 4-Pack is listed at $59.99. That makes it 50% cheaper than the Eve Energy Smart Plug. For fans of Thread (and how could you not be a fan of the speed & responsiveness) that is a huge savings for a smart plug featuring Matter over Thread. There is also an additional 15% Off coupon on the 1-Pack and 4-Pack.
If you are interested in the Onvis S4 Smart Plug featuring Matter over Thread, it is now available on Amazon.
