B&H offers a Google Home Mini Smart Light Starter Kit two-pack for $70 shipped. Separately, two Home Minis would run you around $60 when on sale or $100 at full price, while the smart bulb is around $25 for two, for a total value of $125 (or $85 on sale). This is a great way to expand an existing smart home by adding Assistant to two more rooms, or you can even begin your conversion with Google’s easy-to-use Assistant platform. When it comes to choosing a smart home technology, Assistant is my go-to choice. The Home Mini is rated 4.6/5 stars from tens of thousands at Best Buy and the bulb has a 4.5/5 rating.
