If a hardwired solution is what you want, I have a 16 channel SSR controller
design, that speaks 1-Wire. Support is via OWFS.
Hardware is minimal, and should cost <$10/unit in small quantities. It's
built around an STM32 micrcontroller, with a handful of supporting parts,
voltage regs, static suppression, RJ45 jacks and a handful of passives. I've
got blank PCBs & most parts for them already. You'll need to be able to deal
with SMD soldering to assemble them.
Output is 0-3.3V, which can drive solid state relays or low power mosfets.
For PCs, a mosfet pulling the reset or power switch lines to ground will
substitute for a button press.
