    Does anyone know of a wireless security camera (preferably HD) that works well with Macs? Ideally I'd also like it to have pan/tilt and zoom.

    I can't really seem to find much in the way of cameras that meet these requirements and can be setup and operated solely from a Mac.

    Thanks! I hadn't heard of that brand. The model you linked isn't HD, but I'm starting to think I won't be able to go that route unless I spend an outrageous amount of money. Will definitely be poking around that site to see what else they have also, I appreciate the link

    This IP camera is HD and compatible with Mac

    I ran across this thread because our company, CCTV Camera Pros, was mentioned and was very glad to hear that Apple support recommended us. Anyway, this is a HD camera (it is 1.3 megapixel) with wireless network support that is Mac compatible. My company also developed a free iPhone app that works with this and many other model cameras if you are also a iPhone user.

    Here is the camera:

    On this page, you can see some screenshots and videos of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad live video monitoring that Zavio camera:

    Please let me know if I can help further.

    Take a look at this wireless security camera. It's pretty hard to find a mac compatible security camera. Seems like everything is made for Windows or linux.

    I set up a bunch of these a while back but ended up returning them.

    At the time, there were no 802.11N units that did what I wanted, so I had to buy 802.11G (2.4 Ghz) cameras.

    They worked great until someone used the microwave.

    Then all the cameras would go offline. (and would not recover) - for security that made them useless.

    Ended up installing a wired system myself which has been flawless so far.

    Good luck.
