Microsoft Face Detect

The microsoft_face_detect image processing platform allows you to use the Microsoft Face Identify API through Home Assistant. This platform enables you to detect face on camera and fire an event with attributes.

Please refer to the Microsoft Face integration configuration on how to setup the API key.

For using the result inside an automation rule, take a look at the Image Processing integration page.

The free version of the Microsoft Face identify API limits the number of requests possible per month. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you limit the scan_interval when setting up an instance of this entity as detailed on the main Image Processing integration page.
