Everything about Nest’s new $300 Nest Cam IQ is awesome… except for that $300 price tag. It has a class-leading 4K sensor which is unheard of on a widely available home security camera, and it uses all that resolution in a brilliant way. The video it streams is actually 1080p (who needs 4K?) but the camera uses all the extra pixels to automatically enable a digital zoom feature when it detect motion. Facial recognition software locks on to a person who enters your home and follows them as they move around. It’s a brilliant feature in a fantastic camera, and you can have it right now on Amazon at its lowest price ever.

Here’s what you need to know from the product page:

* Person alerts: Smart enough to tell a person from a thing, then alert you.
* Supersight: A 4K sensor, 12x digital zoom and High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging offer extra clear video that can automatically zoom in and track intruders
* HD Talk and Listen: Lets you have a seamless conversation.
* 24/7 live video: See a 130° view in 1080p HD, day or night.
* 3-hour snapshot history: Review what happened in the Nest app, even if you missed an alert.
