Face recognition using Omron HVC


I want to get this facial recognition device. I found a tutorial on how to run this on RPI 4 using Python code. Is there any reasonable way to implement this in Nodered?

Thanks for all the comments. I'm trying to find as much information on this as possible before I buy this device (it's not that cheap).


If there is a working python module, you can simply modify it (or use it) to transmit messages over MQTT from python to NODE-RED.

At the end of the day, the OMRON module communicates over UART so you could even use the python code as a reference to build a flow using serial port nodes listening on /dev/ttyACM0 & ditch the python code altogether.

Hi Steve,

Thank you, the important thing is to know that it will work, now I will try to program it. :slight_smile:
