I was thrilled that the Lynx Solar was able to recognize faces, as shadows, sunglasses, hats, and any other conventional outdoor gear can severely limit visibility and make both difficult to detect and distinguish between faces.
So far, the outdoor “facial recognition” cameras that I have tested, like, was not really able to distinguish between stored personal databases in terms of faces. Instead, they can just tell you that they’ve seen a person. We’ll just have to try Lynx Solar for ourselves and report back.
