We love the Nest Cam IQ — a lot — but $300 is a lot of money to spend on one home security camera. Even right now while it’s discounted on Amazon, it’s still very expensive. If you’re looking for a camera with the Nest Cam IQ’s awesome new facial recognition and face-tracking feature but $260+ is outside your budget, definitely check out the Lynx Indoor 1080P Wifi Home Security Camera with Night Vision and Facial Recognition. This nifty camera packs the Nest Cam IQ’s signature feature into a $60 device, and it even includes free 7-day cloud storage for life!

Here are some of the key details from the product listing:

* Intelligent facial recognition software to choose who your camera recognizes
* Crystal clear 1080P HD live video streaming with night vision to monitor in complete darkness
* Free & secure lifetime 7-day cloud storage
* Two-way audio, motion detection and instant alerts
* Built-in support for 802.11b/g/n 2.4Ghz Wifi band (5Ghz currently not supported, please confirm that your router supports 2.4Ghz Wifi Band). Access your camera with the Tend Secure App on your mobile device anytime, anywhere
