Yes, it is possible.

I would suggest the use of IP Cameras. (Unlike traditional webcams, they do not need a computer)

Chose one with FTP upload.

I use a selection of Panasonic IP cameras, like the BL-C1, 10, 131, etc. You can find these quite cheaply on a well-known auction site.

These all provide a range of features for ftp\email of pictures, to a schedule or on motion detect.

If you have the budget, the Y-cam range look OK, and the improved image quality over the older panasonic models is obvious. From there you are into £hundreds for Axis or high-end Panasonics.

An alternative may be to run cabling and use cheaper conventional cameras, a capture card and Zoneminder? http://www.zoneminder.com/ A friend of mine uses that and it works well.
