You can find more details as well as the code, on the original blog post (I know I'm not allowed yet to post external links, but it's definitely not spam and I can't really just copy and past all the stuff and code examples from that blog here...):

could you use the same concept to trigger a relay on a power outlet, to do some home automation/bluetooth control?
