Friendly Faces (Facial Recognition) - Better way to work with Facial Recognitions


The following is a bunch of faces which I need to remove as they are not family members or friends. I am posting this as I am not sure if there is an alternative way to work with faces and either assign or remove.

What I was hoping is for a way on the main screen to select multiple faces and then either delete, add them to a known face, or simply create a new name for the selected images.

Currently I have to go through these one at a time. Tap on a face, then choose edit, then choose select or Add Name (I chose Select), then toggle the checkbox, Tap Remove to delete. Then once it has been deleted it doesn’t go back to the main face screen, you have to tap on cancel then the “<” icon at the top right. Then repeat for all faces.

So my Wish is to revamp the Facial Recognition page and how you work with faces.

[Mod Edit]: Title modified to enhance search clarity.

I agree, the UI is ok right now but I feel like it could be much better and easier than it is now. @WyzeShawn

This needs to be an easier process.


Select multiple images to tag to a “Friendly Face”

Current implementation requires each instance of a face to be tagged individually. Providing an option to select multiple identified faces and tag that to a name would make it easier for the user and hopefully help the image recognition work better


Move friendly faces between people

Sometimes friendly faces incorrectly identifies someone, or occasionally I click the wrong name by accident when assigning.

There should be a way to move an image to another name. Currently the only way I have found to get the wrong faces off of a name is to delete them, this means I lose that training data for the correct person and it just keeps assigning images of my daughter to my wife’s name.



I typically see (and defend) the development perspective on these types of things, but for the life of me, I cannot figure out why tagging faces in the Wyze app is not a batch operation. It’s possible in batch on mobile camera rolls, on home NAS systems, Windows, and I have to assume Mac OS. Yet nobody at Wyze, in all the times this feature was being developed, thought “Damn, it’s incredibly cumbersome to have to go through the entire tagging workflow for each and… every… single… photo? That’s mind boggling.
