Before you run out and spend $300 on the Nest Cam IQ to get Nest’s cool AI-based face recognition feature, you should probably be made aware of the fact that you can get almost the same thing with the YI Home Camera 3. There are really only two differences: First, the YI camera has 1080p resolution instead of a 4K sensor that’s downsampled for zoom. Second, the YI camera in on sale for $44.99 after you clip the 10% coupon, rather than $300 for the Nest Cam IQ.
