The pitch for Senic’s Nuimo Click is enticing: With the touch of a button, you can start your Sonos speaker system playing your favorite song, artist, album, or playlist; or trigger your favorite Philips Hue lighting scene. And what could be cooler than smart switches that generate their own electricity, so they never need batteries?Yes, you can turn on lights and start music playing with voice commands if you’ve deployed a smart speaker, but just as you don’t always want to pull out your smartphone, there are times when it just doesn’t feel appropriate to talk to your smart home. The Nuimo Click is a good way to impress your friends with your tech savvy—provided you can remember to show it off.
