Facial Recognition - customize your mirror for every user!

  • @paviro Really thanks paviro, I will try to find it! 🙂

  • Project Sponsor Module Developer

    @sunnysys Thank you!!! Sounds straight forward enough!!

    Thank you again!!!

  • Project Sponsor Module Developer

    @sunnysys OH shoot I just sat down to order some stuff for this and realized I didn’t ask you which camera did you get? Did you get the regular or NOIR version?

    Do you mind sharing your py script that you used to make the pictures? Much appreciated!

    @cowboysdude @sunnysys why not use the capture script in the module repo?

  • Project Sponsor Module Developer

    @paviro When I get the camera and rebuild the mirror I will do that!! Sounds like it may be easier…

  • @cowboysdude I’ve got the 5MP regular version PiCamera. I read somewhere that the new 8MP ones still got some issues. Don’t know what’s the situation with it now.
    Yes, I can share you my capturing code but now I’ve tried to capture images with the built in script of paviro’s MMM-Facial-Recognition-Tools and it works fine. No need to use other script anymore. 🙂

  • @paviro I tried it at first time and it seemed not working. Don’t know what the problem was but I’ve taken a second try right now and it works like a charm. 🙂 Thanks!

    @sunnysys @paviro

    Thank you both!! My camera should be in today so I guess I’ll tinker with it this weekend.

    I ordered the NOIR version …

  • Someone know if this module could work with a USB webcam? I try but don´t recognize me. I have the training.xml document on the folder, then start the MagicMirror and Raspberry start the module, but then nothing. I need to do something else? Need to configure in a different way? Or not be possible?

  • @piedaniel did you set “useUSBCam” to True in the config.js?
