assuming I am running a tezos node, is there any way to create a smart contract in tezos that is capable of triggering outside actions? For example, sending an email to an address, or turning lights on or off in my home? This will I guess involve having a listener process running on the same processor as my node, that listens to all the new transactions and takes action when a transaction corresponding to the firing of the smart contract occurs. The crude idea for an on/off type command is that I can generate in advance hardcoded "flag" hashes for each particular command, and check if the hash appears anywhere in a new block and if it does, the command fires (whether a human put it there or a smart contract generated it doesn't matter). So that the sleeping value in a contract does not fire the trigger, I can simply store the hash minus one, and until the contract adds 1 to it it doesn't show up. Since the data in Tezos is public, I'm sure this can be done, but I'm wondering whether it can be done in a more simple and efficient way than the above hack, or if it's been done already. Thank you

If you want to monitor one smart contract in particular you can use DIP {DUP} or Que Pasa.
