Face detection and object tracking

I'm working on a home security project and need some help regarding object tracking. My objective: When somebody enters into room, track that person (or thing). When a face appears on that object, detect and label it (recognition will be done separately). Even though face disappears from the frame, continue to track the object and do not lose the label.

I want to do this in order to reduce complexity on the face recognition. Since face detection algorithm can lose face from different angles, I need to keep track of the person. I do not want to run face recognition algorithm continuously. Once an object has been detected and potentially recognized, do not run recognition algorithm.

I appreciate any comments on algorithms, existing work or some guidance.

also keep in mind that getting a robust tracking system like this, is something several PhD students world wide are working on without getting 100% success rate :D so it might be more difficult then you actually think.
