Yes, it can. There is third party software available for this very use. My camera has since died on me, so I can't recall the exact name of the software. If I can find it, I'll email you from home later this week. In the meantime google home monitoring software. Much of it is free. -Tim
ICam has free software you can download from Cnet or any other reputable download site. That's the one I use and you can display up to four different web cams at once, and zoom in on one after selecting it. Good Luck!
