How To Use Face Detection (IP8M-2693EW-AI)

The Face Detection feature cannot be used simultaneously with IVS. This plan must be disabled in the Smart Plan menu before the Face Detection rule can be used. For more information on how to set up Face Detection on your camera, please refer to the information provided below.

Step 1: Log in to the web user interface (web UI) for your camera. For more information on how to access the web UI for your camera click here

Step 2: In the web UI, click on Setup>>Event>>Smart Plan. Click on the Face Detection icon and click Save.


Step 3: Click on the Face Detection option located in the Events menu then click on the Enable checkbox. 


Note: If needed, click on the Enable Face Enhancement checkbox to enhance the accuracy of the face detection image. The OSD option is used to provide an overlay on the live view screen of how many face events were detected by the camera. 

Step 4: Click Record to allow the camera to begin recording face detection events.


Note: To increase the efficiency of the image, click on the Enable Face Exposure checkbox. This helps to automatically increase or decrease the exposure of the image once a face is detected.

Step 5: This is not necessary however, to exclude a specific area on the interface from being able to detect faces, click on the Exclude Region button then draw the excluded area on the interface. Click Save to save the settings to your camera.


Email snapshots of the event can be sent if an email setup is set up on your camera. For more information on how to set up email snapshots, click here.
