Is there any kind of remote that can do that?

Not as far as I know - I have 2 web cams that I can't use with win 7 because there is no driver for them.

I guess if you had the programming skills then you could write something or perhaps do the control with a separate micro controller or a hard wired system.

If the mechanism is in the web cam then it might be accessible in some way but i don't know how.
