There are a lot of projects that will use your TV-type IR remote control to control all sorts of other things, as well as some simple kits that provide on/off functionality.

Solenoids are best obtained from surplus dealers like Electronics Goldmine or All Electronics; see one of the threads on electronics parts stores. (NEW solenoids tend to be very expensive.)
