Getting Started with automatic blinds for Google Home

I'm looking to control shades via Google Home smartphone software?

I found this on Amazon for under $100 and it says it's compatible with Google Home.

However, I really don't have any idea if this is the best place to start.

What's really necessary for this?

Does Google also offer a way to control TV's also through a phone app?

What's really necessary for this? What you need to do is as follows:-

1. To buy IKEA SKOGSKLOVER Roller Blind or IKEA Tupplur blind;

2. To ask a handyman (or you can do if you have the tools) to fix the blind at your windows and connect the rod to the blind to make it a smart blind;

3. To connect a 5V 1A USB power source using microUSB cable to the rod.

4.  To download and install the app in your Android phone to connect the rod to your wireless router

5. After the setup with Intelligent Home Center, connect to your Google Home and "Add device" and search for "BroadLink" to add the control of the rod.
