NEST CAM IQ
Nest forged a strong reputation for making connected smart devices for the home, and the company’s updated indoor security camera is the most impressive yet. Its 4K image sensors, 12x digital zoom and high dynamic range (HDR) video make for quality video, but it’s the algorithm-based capabilities that differentiate the Cam IQ from the crowd. The device sends an alert with an image to your phone if it detects a human in a shot, and the Familiar Faces feature means the camera can differentiate between family members and strangers. You’ll have to sign up for a Nest Aware subscription to use the defining features, but the Cam IQ is a great way of using the Internet of Things to make your home safer. CAM IQ, $299; Nest Aware, $10 per month.
