The Netatmo Presence, for instance, uses technology that lets it differentiate between animals, cars, and people.
The Nest Cam IQ, meanwhile, is the first camera to offer face-recognition technology, and the company recently announced an outdoor model.
Here are some other important factors to consider when buying a home security cam: Even though 1080p is generally the standard resolution for cameras we've tested, and you won't find any that stream or record in 4K at the moment, there are benefits to cameras with higher resolution sensors.
Few home security cameras have optical zoom lenses, but almost all have digital zoom, which crop and enlarge whatever the camera is recording.
The Netatmo Presence and Netgear Arlo Pro are two models built specifically for use outdoors, while the Logi Circle and the Nest Cam Indoor might not survive the next rainstorm if you mount them over your garage door.
