Question about Cameras
I agree IP cameras are great but are still expensive. A dedicated CCTV DVR connected to your network is the proper solution. These can be found online and will cost the same as a multiple IP camera set up. You could also use a PC with video capture cards as mentioned in previous solution.

It is possible; you need to use specifically designed IP network cameras for this purpose. Problem with these is, they're around the same price as quality CCTV cameras, so setting up a multiple camera system might become price-prohibitive. The advantage is you can add cameras at will.
To use multiple usb webcams, you need the software to do it. Zoneminder ( http://www.zoneminder.com ) is a free security suite based on the Linux kernel which can use several camera types (including IP cameras, analogue cameras through a composite capture card, or usb cameras). This requires a dedicated system based on a fast P4 or multicore Intel-based CPU (AMD cores are no good for this in my experience, for reasons I still haven't fathomed) with 2GB+ of RAM and a large hard disk or array for video/still storage. The other advantage to using ZM on a dedicated system is that it has no hard limit on the number of cameras in concurrent use - you can even use it to monitor cameras on other sites.
