Ideally, I would like to use a few standalone networked cameras (either wired or wireless) and have them send their captures to a Linux machine that I use as a home server, rather than fussing about with webcams and the excellent "Motion" software. Unfortunately, all of the manufacturer pages for the models that I've looked at trumpet the features of the Windows-only software that they ship with and don't mention anything about Linux compatibility. Has anyone done anything like this? What hardware and software did you use?
