Honeywell Smart Home Security Camera

The Honeywell Smart Home Security Camera is an all-in-one security system.

It has an integrated Amazon Alexa speaker, a camera, a siren and a Z-Wave hub. While the camera has facial recognition tech, it was hit-or-miss for me during testing.

Nest Cam IQ Indoor

The Nest Cam IQ Indoor offers free person alerts and optional "familiar face alerts" via the Nest Aware subscription service. 

Familiar face alerts lets you create a database of people you know and the camera will tell you who's there if it recognizes them.
