Google® Home

Google® Home is the OG (standing, in this case, for Original Google®) home assistant. More expensive than its smaller counterpart, the original Google® smart home device has a proprietary charging port, which may be inconvenient, but the rest of the features put it a cut above other home assistants:

  • Deep bass and good sound quality for music
  • A sensitive microphone that picks up your commands
  • Touch controls not dependent on voice activation

Google® Home Mini

The Google® Home Mini does not offer as comprehensive a solution as the OG, but at less than half the price, it’s a good entry point for the home assistant n00b. Unlike the original Google® Home, it does not feature comprehensive touch controls. With little bass power and low volume, it’s not as good for listening to tunes. But it has its advantages:

  • Unobtrusive design with multiple color options
  • Universal charging via Micro USB
  • Entry-level price point

Smart Home Integration

Adding Google® Home or Google® Home Mini to your smart home means easy, personalized voice control for all your smart devices. Adjust the lights, lock the doors, set alarms or timers, even place hands-free calls to family and friends. Just say “Hey Google” and your home assistant, and by extension your whole Vivint smart home, will respond.

Precise, Professional Installation by Vivint Smart Home Pros™

Of course your Google smart home assistant works with a voice command, but we’re not at the point where you can say out loud “install my system” to have the assistant do it for you. Yet. That’s why our Vivint Smart Home Pros™ will integrate Google® Home with your Vivint equipment upon installation—and teach you how to use it.

Unlock Voice Control by Syncing Vivint with Other Smart Hubs

Intelligent and friendly, the Vivint Smart Hub™ gets along with Google® Home to give you hands-free control.
