#Matter Genio Thermostat Example

An example showing the use of Matter on the MediaTek Genio MT793X.


The Genio (MT793X) thermostat example provides a baseline demonstration of a thermostat device, built using Matter and the MediaTek Genio SDK. It can be controlled by a Chip controller over Wi-Fi network..

The Genio device can be commissioned over Bluetooth Low Energy where the device and the Chip controller will exchange security information with the Rendez-vous procedure. Network credentials are then provided to the Genio device which will then join the network.

The thermostat example is intended to serve both as a means to explore the workings of Matter as well as a template for creating real products based on the MediaTek platform.


  • Following the Linux related descriptions in Build Matter to prepare the build environment.

  • Supported hardware:

    Genio 130A (MT7931) board:

    • EK-AI7931LD KIT
  • Build the example application:

      `cd ~/connectedhomeip`
      `./scripts/examples/ ./examples/thermostat/genio` `./out/thermostat`
  • To delete generated executable, libraries and object files use:

      `$ cd ~/connectedhomeip`
      `$ rm -rf ./out/`

    OR use GN/Ninja directly

      `$ cd ~/connectedhomeip/examples/thermostat/genio`
      `$ git submodule update --init`
      `$ source third_party/connectedhomeip/scripts/`
      `$ gn gen out/debug`
      `$ ninja -C out/debug`
  • To delete generated executable, libraries and object files use:

      `$ cd ~/connectedhomeip/examples/thermostat/genio`
      `$ rm -rf out/`

Flashing the Application

  • Copy the GUI based Flash Tool. from the Linux Host that the example was build to a Windows PC.

    Flash Tool can be found in this source tree under this directory


  • On the Windows PC, run the Flash Tool

    1. Select the scatter.ini file in the ./out/thermostat directory.
    2. Follow the instruction that comes with EK-AI7931LD KIT to switch the kit to download mode.
    3. Click Download on FLASH TOOL.

Running the Complete Example


  • Depending on your network settings your router might not provide native ipv6 addresses to your devices (Border router / PC). If this is the case, you need to add a static ipv6 addresses on both device and then an ipv6 route to the border router on your PC
