Home CCTV system for Mac? - Mac Networking

I'm looking to install a 4-camera home/garden CCTV security system and want to be able to monitor the camera feeds on a Mac. I've looked around but can only find Windows software. Ideally, I want to use an Airport wireless LAN to distribute the video to various places in the house but would alternatively settle for direct video connection via USB or Firewire. Can anyone point me to a Mac solution? TIA. Stan...

    I've been working with Ben to further integrate our DFG/1394-1 driver
    (uncompressed og in to your Mac over FireWire) so that you can use
    3 og Security Cameras at "nearly" the same time using input
    switching in software.

    HTH..

    One way is to use remote (2.4 GHz) cameras, a 2.4 GHz receiver that
    scans through them when all are selected in its dip switches (or
    freezes on one when a button is pushed), and a og video-to-firewire
    or og video-to-USB device. They sell the 2.4 GHz devices at
