The Logitech C525 has a motion detector, which is unusual. Most of the other webcams of a comparable age and spec to the C525 do not have a motion detector.

Features Face Tracking

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative webcams which feature face tracking currently available including the Logitech C910 which has better reviews.
