    Not sure of your hardware setup, but some freeware items might be able to take those images and post them to a website, where you can watch.

    On the other hand, watching 'live' casts can be time consuming, and you may consider 'saving' all 'motion detected' camera activity to a computer hard drive, and then access those archived as time permits.

    That would be handy in the event of some criminal activity which requires evidence.

    There's a couple of freeware items here, so pick and choose.

    Added: Where/how do you currently watch the cameras?

    There may be a USB/firewire port, which could be (maybe) connected to a computer, which could be configured to access the video.

    Consult your current camera system manual to see if it's possible.

    Hire a computer guy, you can probably set them to stream to some online site(if you dont want snoopers make sure its private) Which, so long as you have an internet connection, you can see.

    Past that though... I dont think its neccasary? You seeing it wont stop it from happening, the stuff will be gone when you get back regardless and the recording will be there. its best to relax and enjoy your vacation.
