Spark Devices Allow you to Control Your LIghts thru Apps

For years, I've used modules to control my lights in my home.  These modules, made by a number of manufacturers, use impulses sent over your electrical wiring in your home to trigger "on" or "off" signals in a controller box.  The boxes plug into your outlets and then your lights and appliances plug into the controller boxes.
 
It's pretty basic and easy, but it allows either a PC or a simple remote control to give you the ability to control anything plugged into one of the controller boxes.
 
Well, now comes Spark.  This is a very cool idea that uses the Internet to give you the same functionality and more from your phone, tablet, or computer.
