    Well, it all depends on the nature of the (unspecified) different networks, and how they communicate.
    But if there is a routing interface between them, and the devices are configured to use a gateway, it should be possible.

    If you are using a Blue Iris to connect to the 2 networks, you can do it easily with 2 ethernet connections and static IP's.
    A USB ethernet adapter can be used if the traffic to that network is not too great. In windoze 10, the second network can not have a gateway, so all traffic other then the local networks will go out the first connection and through the gateway provided.
