The CFH-V20 is equipped with a 180-degree field of view, night vision, two-way talk, motion alerts and free 24-hour event-based cloud storage via the iSecurity+ app, available for Android and iOS.

You can also sign up for Smart Detection, a premium option starting at $3 per month that does a pretty good job of distinguishing moving people from other motion-related activity (although it isn't able to tell you who it's seeing).
