The Good: Wisenet's SmartCam N1 indoor security camera with facial recognition does a good job identifying faces and it has a microSD card slot, motion detection zones and support for Alexa and Google Assistant. The Bad: If you want cloud storage, you have to pay for it. The Bottom Line: Wisenet's SmartCam N1 is a fine facial recognition camera, but you can find models with similar performance for much less. Wisenet's $150 (\u00a3115\/AU$205) SmartCam N1 isn't expensive by traditional security camera standards, but things are changing. That typical $200 price range, popularized by the Nest Cam Indoor, has shifted in the last couple of years toward budget models with similar features. While the SmartCam N1 is a fine indoor facial recognition camera, the Tend Secure Lynx is as good for just $60. The N1 cam might still be worth it to you if you want that microSD card slot for local storage access (it supports up to 128GB). Otherwise, I'd look elsewhere. How does the SmartCam N1 compare to the identically priced Tend Secure Lynx Pro? Let's take a look: The SmartCam N1 separates itself from the Lynx Pro with a web app and activity zones, but you don't get the Lynx Pro's free 7-day event-based video clip storage, built-in local storage and weatherproof casing. Looking at features alone, the Lynx Pro is a better camera, but the SmartCam N1 performs better, especially when it comes to facial recognition.
