This $59 home security camera has one of the $300 Nest Cam IQ’s best features

Published Jul 26th, 2017 8:20AM EDT

The brand new Nest Cam IQ is a streaming home security camera that has a very cool new feature. Using facial recognition, the camera can spot a person in your home and then follow him or her around by locking in on the face. Then it also has an awesome smart zoom feature thanks to its 4K sensor, so it can zoom in for a crystal clear look at the person it’s tracking. The significantly more affordable Lynx Indoor 1080P Wifi Home Security Camera doesn’t have a smart zoom feature or 4K resolution, but it does offer very cool facial recognition features that can recognize your family and then alert you when someone else enters your home.

Here are some highlights from the product page:

  • Intelligent facial recognition software to choose who your camera recognizes
  • Crystal clear 1080P HD live video streaming
  • Free & secure Lifetime 7-day cloud storage
  • Night vision to monitor in complete darkness
  • Two-way audio, motion detection and instant alerts
