No.  PHP runs on a web server, the webcam runs on a client computer or workstation.  I supposed you could put a webcam on a web server if it was your own computer.  But even then, PHP is not suited for that kind of hardware operation.  Don't webcams come with software to do that?

Suggest you contact these folks and see how they do it.  Heck, you might even have to make a site visit to Key West!
