Use Google Assistant to control your Vivint system

 

Vivint Smart Home is a Cloud-based smart home monitoring system. With help from the SkyControl touch screen control panel, you can connect and control all your Vivint smart devices, including your thermostat, door locks, lights, appliances, and cameras. At just seven inches, the Vivint SkyControl uses Wi-Fi, radio frequency (RF), and Z-Wave technology to communicate with the connected devices and streamline the process for users.

The wall-mounted control panel can be accessed in person, via the Vivint Sky app, or using the web console. No matter where you are — at home, at work, running errands, or on vacation — you can make sure that doors are locked, energy is being conserved, and your home is well monitored.
