Conclusion

The Mui is a great smart home control hub but a little bit pricy for our taste: $549. Still, the design is exceptional if you’re looking for a Smart Device and you don’t want that futuristic look in your house. Also, this is the perfect solution for houses with a wooden interior. Last but not least, thanks to the IFTTT integration, the possibilities of the Mui are limitless and you can connect almost anything. This is probably the best feature of Mui otherwise it would just have been a great looking overpriced wooden smart speaker. If you have the money to spend and don’t like your average smart home control hub, go for the Mui!
