Yep all works fine.
You could look at the Axis range of cameras, I find them very good.
Whatever cameras you use be aware that your backend will need to have
a little bit of ooomph if you are going to have motion detection
turned on, obviously if the camera is capturing 25 frames per second
and looking for motion in each frame it takes some processor power.
Multiply that by the number of cameras and you see the issue.
I combined my myth backend with my zoneminder backend/recorder and
have no problems.
Depending on the distro you're using you may well find zoneminder and
the plugins already packaged.
