IoT security firm Nest has launched a new home surveillance camera that comes with facial-recognition technology made by Nest's sibling company, Google. 

The Nest Cam IQ costs $300, plus a $10 monthly subscription to run the facial-recognition program and other features, such as 10-day video storage.

An Associated Press report noted that the camera occasionally got baffled when it saw someone from a side angle, even it had previously identified that person.

It also added images of paper print-outs of people's faces to their profiles and questioned the identity of an Albert Einstein image on one reporter's T-shirts.
