Cam Plus Pro friendly faces status

I’ve had Cam Plus Pro for about two weeks and I am trying to get it to recognize friendly faces. I’ve had it pointed at me using different angles/distances for a couple days.
When I ‘Arm’ campluspro, it will alert on my face and another face that the cam hasn’t seen. Is Friendly Faces working for Cam Plus Pro? The last update I could find was from October 28, 2021 that it is coming soon.

I went through the FAQ below without any change: on

I think Friendly Faces is still something under development and in the early stages of what it can do right now. I haven’t personally noticed it do anything other than capture faces to categorize and label them in events for right now, but they do plan to have it do a bunch of other stuff like not set off the alarm if it see’s a friendly face.

In general, the face needs to cover at least 300 pixels to have a 90% confidence interval, which is roughly 6.74’ away. It can detect some faces farther away, but the farther away, the lower the confidence interval and accuracy.

That’s my take on it, but how do we confirm it? The faq is from October so I don’t have much to go on.

This will just be another AI feature that doesn’t work as advertised. And it’s a waste of their resources. Fix the bugs in the camera software first!

Sounds about right.
I signed up for cam plus pro for a month to test it. Put the cam at different distances and angles for hours and it never recognized anyone.
