Your smart home is becoming increasingly talkative, thanks to a new collaboration between Vivint Smart Home and Google.
On Tuesday, June 19, Vivint announced a new partnership with Google that makes all of its smart home devices voice-enabled by way of Google Assistant.
So not only can you control your smart home with your smartphone, but you can also control it with your voice.
With this announcement, Vivint has become the first smart home company to provide voice control to each and every new customer.
Moreover, the company will be including two Google Home Mini devices with each smart home system purchased.
Vivint has long maintained a relationship with Google Assistant — Vivint smart homes owners already have the option of controlling lights, locks, thermostats, garage doors, and security systems by telling Google, “turn the lights off,” or “lock the doors,” or “arm my alarm.”
