The startup costs vary depending on what you want online. At the minimum, you'd need a computer, a camera, and an internet connection, two of which you probably already have. Cams cost as little as $10 for something simple and cheap and can cost over $100 for something of better quality with pan/tilt/zoom functions built in. You can build a relay controllable lamp for about $10 or buy a X10 startup kit for $40 which includes two modules. How much you spend on hosting ultimately depends on the traffic requirements. I spend $100 a month on the main server, but I also use it for other things besides just the site.
