Check out http://www.x10.com/automation/computer_kits.html

They sell kits to do the automation, and you can buy them one at a time as you like.  I've used them for controlling outdoor lights and even allowing me to monitor a camera on the back of my garage, and the stuff works very well.  Its a good place to get started as you build your knowledge base on automation.

Good luck, its a fun way to connect your PC to life around you!
