There are are freesoftware projects attempting to do these types of
things notedly motion :


- developed for linux but has a freebsd developer 
- can handle these web based cameras 
  (recommends axis cameras: http://www.axis.com ), 
- allows you to record to disk only the images in which motion has occured, 
- can log to a database etc. 
- and can do more funky image analysis type stuff:


Haven't really used it but played around with it and firewire cameras
last year.
