The Smart Home for most consumers has not achieved its full potential. Lack of interoperability among devices has depressed its potential.
For example, a consumer cannot say “Hey Alexa, play Stranger Things on Netflix on my Apple TV.” In the recent past, device manufacturers have also needed to make their products compatible with several different ecosystems, adding cost and complexity for everyone.
To address this, the industry created “Matter”, a protocol to address interoperability. In theory, this allows any device to connect to any other, significantly reducing the barrier for entry and thereby increasing the potential size of the Smart Home market.
Privacy and Security Breaches
Matter is primarily designed to operate over a local area network (LAN). However, Matter retains a key vulnerability from its fragmented predecessor. When a user needs to remotely access their home through the cloud, cloud-based service providers, acting as an intermediary and requiring usage registration, can access data and metadata on all Matter devices on the private LAN at home. This potentially exposes users to possibly severe privacy and security breaches.
Privacy concerns are growing more paramount in consumer minds. Therefore, secure data transmission is required to eliminate cloud-based service provider access as information passes through their servers. Without addressing this security vulnerability, the Smart Home market may never reach its full potential.
The challenge is how to protect privacy and security while maintaining interoperability.
Primes Lab’s technology - Virtual Teleporter
Primes Lab’s Virtual Teleporter™, a proprietary technology protected by over 20 US and international patents, enables an endpoint device to remotely connect to a private LAN at home and become a native part of that network. Though connecting over cellular, Wi-Fi, cable, and other internet services, it actually bypasses all intermediary entities and cloud-based services without usage registration. This protects ALL application data from external tracking.
Once inside the private LAN at home, the virtually teleported endpoint device functions identically to any other Matter-enabled device on that private network. Tracking-free interoperability can therefore be achieved without any compromise of privacy or security.

Primes Lab’s Solution
To implement virtual teleportation technology, Primes Lab’s solution involves both a Private Matter Gateway (PMG) installed on the user’s private LAN at home and a corresponding Virtual Machine Server (VMS) setup in the cloud. The combination of the PMG and the VMS provides a remote endpoint device with a tracking-free connection to the private LAN at home, allowing for full access to all digital assets on that private network.
A fundamental breakthrough in computer networking, Primes Lab’s Virtual Teleporter technology provides many benefits to consumers and businesses alike. In addition to privacy and security mentioned above, it also offers —
