Can someone tell me if Apple or some other company makes a wireless webcam that will communicate with my Mac Mini, possibly through the Airport system ?? I need to be able to install the cam in my cabin in Utah, and than access it via the internet from my computer here in Vegas. Thanks in advance !! DW

Wireless Webcam

I was aware that I could connect a cat5 to it. Why is it that Windows has figured out how to run a wireless webcam, yet Mac has not ??? DW

Your question should be: why have some manufacturers bothered to write Mac drivers for their wireless webcams, and others have not?

A quick search reveals at least one product, from Axis, that is compatible. There may be others. I have no experience with any of them though.

Check out Axis. I am still figuring out my firewall for remote access but my 207W looks like it should work fine. It will email me if it senses motion and allow remote access.

Oh, and check out SecuritySpy.
