Home automation is a modern technology that modifies your home to perform different sets of tasks automatically.
In this project, I will be explaining you about my IoT Home automation using Google Home Mini and Arduino. You will be needing the Blynk and IFTTT apps for this project.

For this project, you will be needing the Blynk and IFTTT app. To get started with Blynk, please visit this link:
Use the example code builder to choose your hardware model and connectivity type, and copy the whole code to buffer.
Upload this code to your Microcontroller board and connect your board with Blynk app. Visit ifttt.com to get started with IFTTT. Create applets using Google Assistant and Webhooks services. Make sure that you use the same gmail address for the IFTTT account and your Google Assistant/ Google Home Mini.
Here is an example of my applet used to switch on the fan:
