Get Started with Intel® RealSense™ ID
Congratulations! Now that you’ve got your Intel® RealSense™ ID device, start using it by following these simple steps.
What’s in the box?
Connecting Intel RealSense ID
Using the provided USB 2 Type C cable, connect the peripheral to your PC or host device.
Download and install the latest Intel RealSense ID SDK
The Intel RealSense ID SDK includes the Intel RealSense ID Viewer software, API documentation and libraries for Windows, Linux and Android as well as code samples.
It can be found on the Intel RealSense GitHub page.
Install the appropriate version of the SDK for your platform. If you are a Windows user, the Intel RealSense ID SDK installer will launch the Viewer after installation.
Using the Intel RealSense ID Viewer software
The viewer software is designed to allow you to quickly test and evaluate a variety of features of your new Intel RealSense ID device.
Enroll a new user
With an F455/F450 correctly attached, the viewer software will show the following screen:
Sitting or standing 50-60 cm from the camera, ideally with good ambient light and minimal backlighting. Click “Enroll” and enter your name.
After entering your name, the system will enroll you and display a success message.
Once you have enrolled, you can test authentication.
Click on “Authenticate.” This will attempt to authenticate you once. With the “repeat” checkbox selected, the system will continuously attempt to authenticate you until the stop button is clicked.
Deleting a user
Use the checkboxes by the usernames in the left pane to select users for deletion and use the trash icon to delete them. This action cannot be undone – any users erroneously deleted must be re-enrolled. The upper checkbox can be used to delete all enrolled users.
There are a number of configurable settings that allow you to customize the operation of your F450/F455.
Using the gear icon in the top right corner will open the following window.
Confidence level – This setting allows you to test an operating mode that supports partially covered faces (e.g. due to face masks). Medium confidence will allow authentication with greater tolerance, where High confidence might reject partially covered faces in some situations.
Camera Rotation – In situations where the camera might need to be mounted upside down (for example to conform to a specific industrial design) the operational mode should be set to 180 degrees.
Host Mode – By default, the user database information is saved on the F450/F455 device. By switching to “Yes” you can save the user database in another location.
Firmware Update – This will allow you to update the firmware on the connected device as described in the following section.
Updating face template
Using the save disk icon in the top right corner of the viewer will allow you to update the stored face template and save it to the device.
In some situations when opening the viewer, you will be prompted to update the firmware before using.
Make sure your device is securely connected and navigate to the firmware file you just downloaded.
Click open and wait for the update to complete.
When the update is complete, disconnect and reconnect the device, and press "OK" to restart the application.
