Controlling Cameras Via Web or WAN

Hello all! I have several livestreaming set ups, but would like to add remote PTZOptics cameras that can be controlled via the web or a WAN rather than on a local network. I'd like to bring the feeds from these cams into my main tricaster or livestream studio, depending on the setup. I've looked at the cams that stream directly to youtube, which is an option... since I could then take that feed from the switcher. The problem is controlling the PTZ functions of the camera. Is this possible through a desktop or web-based app? Thank you for your knowledge!
