Camera mode needs to be enabled for a photo to be taken and the photos are saved to the cloud, not stored locally on the tablet.
Facial recognition is used for quick and easy access for the visitor. If enabled, the visitor needs to sign in once with their photo being taken, entering their name, company name and contact details.
A prompt for users' permission will appear before the photo is taken as some guests do not wish to have their photo taken. If they click 'Accept' then the camera will be used to take a photo. If they 'Decline', no image is taken. With no photo taken, the facial recognition feature will not function.
