Can I use a wireless surveillance cam as web cam and use it with Skype?

this is the cam I'm curious about, DCS-2121

I would tend to say no. Surveillance cams generally are network devices unto themselves - they usually setup as web servers and the camera posts pictures to its own website on the internal server.

Skype would normally require a camera setup as a device on your local machine.
