The Nest Cam IQ is by far the best home security camera that Nest has ever made thanks to its advanced facial recognition features. Unfortunately, the Nest Cam IQ is also by far the most expensive home security camera Nest has ever released. If you’re looking for a similar experience that doesn’t cost $300, definitely check out the Tend Insights Lynx Indoor 1080P Wifi Home Security Camera. It includes all the features you would expect from a home camera as well as facial recognition, so the camera will recognize people in your family or strangers and alert you when necessary.

Here are some key details from the product page:

  • 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 and viewing angle is 125 degree diagonal
  • 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
