This is the snappily named Muzili G9070. It is a rebranded Tuya model – more on that later – which is available under a range of names.
It is… good! Not just for a cheap Chinese robot, but it is genuinely good. Fill it with water, hit the button – on the unit, app, or remote control – and off it goes. If you have carpets, you can swap to a bin which doesn’t have a mopping function. It maps out the room and logically sweeps it. Then returns to the charger when done.
It’s also pretty quiet. This is it mopping our floor:
The app is basic, but works. It even draws out a map of where the robot has been. This is the map of our kitchen:
You can even see the blank spots where the table legs are!
Alexa integration is as crappy as all Alexa integrations. You have to add a skill, detect a new device, realise it doesn’t work, start again, and then – eventually – you can say “Alexa! Start cleaning!” and it starts. You can make it stop, but you can’t make it dock. Silly Alexa.
It looks like it might be hackable, which will be fun.
The package comes with spare bushes and cleaning accessories – and there are plenty of spares online.
For a hundred-and-fifty quid, this is great. It sweeps quietly, rubs water all over your floor, and responds to voice requests. Brilliant!
