Watch ebay for IOTech Micro488/(A, or EX) controllers. I got a couple 
for $20-30 each. Only issue was the battery in the DS1216 was used up, 
so I had to do a reset each time I powered them up. I've since modified 
them to use a couple of CR1232 cells, and they work fine.

The documentation can be found here: 

They're pretty straight forward to use. I'm pretty sure the Black Box 
controllers mentioned here (
