Does anyone know if there is some price friendly hardware like HP ILO/Dell DRAC for desktop PC (home server)?

I prefer PCI/PCIe form.

All I need is access to COM port and remote power cycle.

Thanks in advance.

Do you already have the homeserver? If you do not then look closely at the Intel chipsets. Some of them have support for this. Alternetivly you could buy a workstation class motherboard which often allow an Ilo module to be added. Or, as I did, a dell with an enterprise DRAC for home usage. If you already have the hardware that I do not know of a price friendly solution. –  Hennes Jun 11 '12 at 14:01

Look for a managed PDU in your local stores (there are lots of different vendors manufacturing them, APC being the most famous) - this will provide remove power management. As for a serial console, your BMC might already provide that
