Walmart Google Week cuts prices on smart home deals through Amazon Prime Day

Ten days after Walmart and Google Nest announced Pre-Prime Day smart home deals through July 17, the retail giant and the smart home device manufacturer introduced Google Week. Google Week smart home device deals are valid today through July 16. If the late June announcement was a shot across Amazon’s bow before Prime Day 2019, the latest promotion is a full-frontal assault. Amazon responded to the earlier incursion with its Pre-Prime Day deals, and we fully expect an Amazon artillery barrage in return for today’s move by its most significant retail and smart home competitors.

We’ve found the best discounts on major Google Nest smart home devices during Walmart’s Google Week. You’ll find additional deals for Google Nest devices and compatible products from other manufacturers on Walmart’s Google Week page. With Amazon, Walmart, and Google engaged in what appears to be a price war for retail and smart home supremacy, shoppers can find excellent savings on smart home devices.

Google Home Mini— $24 off

The Google Mini is the smallest smart speaker that works with the Google Assistant digital voice assistant, but it has the full functionality of the original larger and more expensive Google Home. You can talk directly to Google’s search engine to hear the answers to your queries, ask for your favorite tunes, make voice calls, and control the wide and growing number of Google Assistant-compatible smart home devices. You don’t need a smart home setup to use the Mini; it’s a competent voice assistant as a stand-alone device.

Normally priced at $49, the Google Home Mini is cut to $25 during Walmart’s Google Week. If you wantto  start or add to a Google Assistant smart home network, the price of this entry-level smart speaker has never been lower.

Google Home – Smart Speaker and Google Assistant— $60 off

The “full-sized” Google Home smart speaker does everything the Mini above can do, with a notable addition: better music. You won’t find the Google Home’s music quality to be loud or clear enough for a party — other choices can do that well — but for casual listening, in your office or around the house, the Google Home’s sound quality is a big step up from the Mini.

Originally $129, the Google Home smart speaker is just $69 through July 16. If you’re looking for a smart speaker with more than the Home Mini’s minimal sound quality, this is a chance to buy the Google Home at an attractive price.

Google Smart TV Kit: Google Home Mini and Chromecast— $14 off

Watching content from your smartphone, tablet, or computer display on your TV screen is called casting, and the Google Chromecast is the standard by which other devices are measured. The Google Smart TV Kit bundles a Chromecast with a Google Home Mini to add Google Assistant voice control. The Chromecast plugs into a USB port on your TV and responds to smartphone app commands.

Ordinarily $74, the Google Smart TV Kit is discounted to $60 from now until July 17. If you want to be able to watch or share your smartphone screen on a big screen TV, this bundle is a convenient and money-saving way to make it happen.

Google Nest Cam Outdoor Security Camera— $30 off

The Google Nest Cam Outdoor Security Camera is one of our favorites, especially for its night vision. You can configure the 1080p full HD Nest Cam with a smartphone app, so when the camera’s motion sensor detects activity, it will send an alert to your phone as it begins recording. The weatherproof camera also has two-way audio so you can talk with visitors from any location, whether you are sitting in your house or in a hotel room thousands of miles distant.

Instead of the usual $199 price, Walmart cut the Google Nest Cam Outdoor Security Camera to $169 through July 16. If you want an excellent outdoor security camera at a great price, take advantage of Walmart’s Google Week pricing.

Save $200 with this robot vacuum deal in the October Prime Day sale
Eufy RoboVac X8 robot vacuum cleaner on grey floor.

If you've always wanted a robot vacuum, but the price has scared you away, the Prime Early Access Sale is your chance, and the Eufy by Anker RoboVac X8 is your vacuum. The RoboVac X8 is a cheaper alternative to a Roomba, and still pretty powerful. Even better, you can pick it up relatively cheaply from Amazon for $300, a whopping 40% off the usual $500 list price.

Why you should buy the Eufy by Anker RoboVac X8
What's great about the Eufy RoboVac X8 is that it comes with twin turbines, giving it much more suction than the average robot vacuum and allowing it to pick up debris that would otherwise have been too heavy. In a similar vein, it's pretty great for those with long hair or who have pets, as it can easily pick them all up, leaving your floor clean of the typical mess of hair you might find. Of course, it is slightly on the bulkier side, which is to be expected given that it has two turbines and long battery life, which can do a full clean of a 1,300-square-foot apartment without any charging, which makes it a great Prime Day deal if you're looking for a long-lasting robot vacuum.

August Smart Lock starter kit is 36% off in the Amazon’s Prime sale
august smart lock satin nickel finish augustsmartlock connect

Smart home devices have become increasingly common, and if you want to smartify your doors, there are a lot of great solutions during the Prime Early Access Sale that will save you a few dollars in the process. Take the August smart lock, for example -- you can grab it from Amazon for $128 rather than the $200 it goes for, which is almost half off. That also means you can grab two for nearly the same price.

Why you should buy the August Smart Lock and Connect Wi-Fi Bridge
The August Smart Lock is great if you want something easy to install to make your doors a little bit smarter, especially since it can do things such as detect whether your door has been left open or not. What helps here is that the August smart lock installs over the inside part of any typical deadlock, meaning the exterior stays where it is, and you can use the same keys as before, which is a huge positive compared to smart locks that require you to change the whole thing. Access, as you may have surmised, happens through the application, which allows you to open and close the door directly from it and even share virtual keys with others if you'd like, which is great if you tend to rent a lot or have a room you only want a few people to access.
