We were so excited when we first read about the Nest Cam IQ and its awesome face recognition feature that could identify people and track them or send alerts if they’re not recognized. Then we saw the camera’s $300 price tag and the excitement immediately vanished. As it turns out though, it doesn’t cost anywhere near that much to get this great feature in your home. Check out the Tend Insights Lynx Indoor 2 Indoor WiFi Security Camera on Amazon — it has the same great feature and it only costs $59.99!
