N843 & N844 / E893 Series - Face & Mask Detection

Face Detection and Mask Detection are smart features of the E893 series camera and N843 and N844 series recorder.

When either are enabled, Face Detection can detect a person's face as they enter the camera's field of view (FOV) and Mask Detection can detect a person's face without a mask as they enter the camera's FOV.

Face and Mask Detection are disabled by default. To use Face Detection or Mask Detection, you must enable it in the recorder.
