http://www.theill.com/conquercam/ I was looking through the feature requests and it doesn't look like the motion detection is everything you want it to be.
A friend of mine uses tincam http://www.tincam.com/ and really likes it. It's $20, and it seems like it will do what you want.
Does anyone have any recommendations for linux?

You could use a webcam connected to old PC to upload images to an FTP/web site, or buy a shiny IP Cam (to effectively do the same thing). Using VoIP software with a streamed image will likely give too poor an image to be useful.

Motion is awesome. I use it all the time (http://motion.sf.net for those not familar). I've also written some back end software for motion to upload via FTP images. It's pretty straight forward and I need to document it. I wrote it for the Camproject GiD (of Telephreak) has been working on. It's sorta fun. Check it out at
I was playing with a program called 'motion' I found in the Ubuntu repository.. it worked with my cheap logitech web cam and seemed to work pretty well for what little i knew to do with it.
You can setup private/public cameras. Anyways, my work works with motion and it'll be up on his site as soon as I get off my ass and doc it.

I've always wondered if there was a good IP cam software solution for linux. Somthing that could be incorporated into a actual security camera setup.
"motion" is what i use for all my home security cam's....
