A thermostat by computer vision...

Using a WebCam and RoboRealm I'm trying to create a thermostat.

Based on the example: http://www.roborealm.com/tutorial/Digital_Reader/slide010.php
I can now read the temperature from the thermometer's display but how to disconnect the heater from the main supply?

I need a device, activated by usb, serial port or parallel port allowing to connect/disconnect from main supply...

Where to find such device?

Thank you,

You probably need to look at servo's then, if the disconnect is easily to turn on and off you can take a look at the item below


or just do a search on servo and usb and you should find what your looking for
