Wireless control/reporting devices

Anybody know if it's possible to get some small wireless devices (Bluetooth or WiFi) that you eg. put in different outlets in your house and thereby be able to turn the power on or off from your computer?

It could also be temperature measuring devices, something that can push a button, turn something around, register sound, register light, or whatever - just simple small wireless to do some very simple tasks and then be able to command them programmatically from the computer they are connected to.

Regards, Allan Jensen

There are several technologies for wireless device control. But they don't use wifi or bluetooth in the devices. It's common to connect an interface to the PC and that uses whatever technique the devices require. Typically this is a USB or RS-232 serial interface. Various software exists to deal with controlling the devices.
