Automatic wake-up using front camera

If you device is equipped with a front camera, you can use it to automatically wake-up the device when a move is detected.

This feature is only available in dashboard view.

Several options for this feature are available in the Dashboard view preferences:

  • Wake-up with camera: to activate or not the feature
  • Camera wake-up threshold: the "importance of the move" that has to be detected to wak-up the device (represented in number of pixels that should change)
  • Camera wake-up debug mode: to help you defining proper value for above property. Can also help to debug if the wake-up does not work

WARNING: this feature is highly dependent on the device. As such, we can not guarantee it will work with all tablets.

Moreover, the number of Android tablets available on the market being huge, we can not provide an exhaustive list of compatible devices.
