Looking for relay to switch 110VAC from 5V input, anything ready made?

    I know there has got to be a device somewhere that does this:

    Basically I want a small box with a 110VAC power receptacle and a 110VAC
    input, the box has some sort of input that allows a low voltage signal to
    activate a relay inside, switching the 110VAC device plugged into the
    receptacle.

    I am looking for something ready made and UL listed, though it would be
    simple to build this.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Really? Can you give me a digikey part # or two so I can look at them? I
    have searched the digikey website and so far I can only come up with
    components to build the item I describe. Like I said, I am looking for
    something ready made and (preferably) UL listed. Buying components from
    Digikey and building this device isn't a problem, but I imagine there is
    already a product on the market that will fill this need.

    Thanks,

    The Furman MP-15 and MP-20 Power Relays are pretty close to what you're
    looking for. See
    <http://www.furmansound.com/products/pro/pwr_cond_seq/rel/rel5.php>.

    Considering the cost of these things, I'd be strongly tempted to build my
    own.

    I've got tons of X10 stuff, its really great stuff even if its manufactured
    quite cheaply. So far I haven't had any of my X10 stuff fail though I have
    expected it all along.

    For my current idea however, I do not want to use anything wireless like
    X10. Thanks for taking the time to send me the link though!

    Thanks!
