There's X-10 and its derivatives; it's a powerline communication protocol
which has pretty widely available plug-in modules (outlets/switches with
the receiver built-in are available too). Most of the computer-side controllers
these days seem to be USB-based; my setup is so old it predates widespread
USB availability so I am not personally familiar with free software to drive
the newer generation of controllers. There's also xtend which will drive a
plug-in card, but those are pretty antique these days and hard(ish) to find.
www.smarthome.com is one online source of X-10 compatable hardware online.
Hopefully someone else has/will share more current hardware experiences.
