Face recognition have been used in smartphone in past few years. It is a cool technology where you can unlock your phone or to access any application that require high security. With ESP32-CAM, we can try to develop a simple application that use your face as ID. Since ESP32 board package already comes with CameraWebServer example code that cater for video stream and face recognition, let’s try to modify a bit so that it can control a relay to ON and OFF.
This video shows how to unlock a door magnetic lock through face recognition using ESP32 camera.
This is the list of items used in the video.
The custom PCB is created using CNC on Snapmaker. Below is the list of components used in the PCB.
Schematic and PCB files for custom PCB.
The program is edited directly from CameraWebServer example. Please refer to the video.
