recommendations on mac webcam remote monitoring software

I am looking for software to do remote monitoring via a webcam on a macintosh. I haven't bought the webcam yet, so if there's a good one to use for a given software package, I'd be open to getting it. Specifically I want something that can provide reliable video over the web without any local interaction for (ideally) months on end. I don't need any recording capabilities (just keeping track of pets.. there will be someone to take care of them but no one technically competent to fix problems with the webcam during that time).

something like this, but for mac, would be great. reliability and ease of installation and operation are much more important than price.

The best webcam software for OSX is EvoCam.. great for web streaming, surveillance etc.

As for cameras .. the Evological website lists a lot of webcams that work with OSX
