Important: The on-board camera must be enabled to use face recognition. For more information about enabling the on-board camera, see Configure the on-board camera on the 2GIG EDGE.

Using face recognition
To disarm the system using face recognition:
Important: Face Recognition does not detect Duress. During a Duress situation, avoid making the face detection gesture. Instead, tap KEYPAD then enter duress code
- When the system is armed, tap Disarm.
- Align the user’s face within the frame of the camera, slightly moving the head from side to side.
Due to differences in lighting and other factors during face recognition disarming, there may be times when the panel prompts Face Not Recognized. When this occurs, the Enter Code screen will appear so the panel can be disarmed using the designated 4 or 6 digit disarming code.
