Pc connectable motiondetetctor?

I was wondering, is there any kind of motiondetectors that come with a connector that could be connected to pc's com, serial or usb (or whatever)? I was thinking of writing my own software to react to sent signals, but I have no knowledge of electronics.

You could step down to your local radio shack and pick up these devices.  You could also wire up all kinds of timers and other circuitry to be controlled by your PC.
