Simplicity brand motorized blinds

It’s not the motor that matters, it’s the radio frequency control mechanism.

If it has a handheld remote, then you need to check what frequency that operates on.

If it happens to be zwave or zigbee home automation (ZHA 1.2), then there’s a good chance it can be made to integrate with SmartThings.

If it works with IFTTT, you may be able to get at least a partial integration.

If it uses 433 or 334 MHz, then you may be able to use the broadlink pro method that @ZebraBlinds described above.

If it happens to be compatible with the harmony home hub, you should be able to get some integration that way.

If it uses an IR Remote, there are a couple of possibilities, including the global cache or Harmony.

If it has an android app, there are some things you can do with two third-party apps, Tasker and sharptools.

If it works with echo, there are some other possibilities where you can use an additional android device and have it speak commands to the echo. You won’t get the status back, but you can get some control which will work for some situations.

If it uses none of the above, but it has a remote, there is a robot button pusher you can get but it can get quite expensive as you have to get one button pusher per button and there is also an annual fee. You can read more about this option in the following thread:
