why not use a security camera for iMac?

Many nice PTZ security cameras (even IP web security & some reasonable prices) are compatible with IBM PC.

But, it is hard to find ones that compatible with an iMac computer. A very few cheap models (even lousy ones) are compatible with iMac computer.

On the internet, where is the information on what adapter that connect to your iMac if there is a PTZ wired or wireless security camera as long as it is a reasonable price like 100 or maybe 150.

From what I see, the camera itself is not the issue - it's the control software.
PTZ control software is still pretty rare on the Mac.
Here's some that looks pretty good, and supports a wide range of cams. Perhaps it supports the PTZ cameras that you prefer.

There's quite a bit of info about using USB cams, compared to network cams, and a long list of compatible (or not compatible) hardware.
