This PTZ camera offers advanced zoom capabilities with autofocus, enabling it to automatically adjust focus on faces or license plates.

For someone looking for a simple home security solution, these high-end systems might be overkill. However, for businesses or those needing robust security with facial/license plate recognition, they could be a great option.
