    Do I really have to ask you each and every question? Be more specific means say every little detail that is relevant to what you want to do.

    You say cloud based, that would mean some internet connection or something along that way.
    You can control the appliance through a simple triac or relay and monitor the current with a current transformer and a few other parts.

    go to the site the link points to and look around to find it in the projects page, lady ada (from Adafruit industries) always puts everything on there for you to be able to duplicate her projects....
