      Hi Gaspar,

      Thanks for showing interest on FaceAccess. Make sure you've built the program properly from NetBeans IDE 7.0 and the database has been imported as specified in the given installation instructions.

      You can decide to remove all records from the installed database and start from fresh. But this will deny you access into the system from system start-up. If you do remove all records from the database, then you'll have to run the specific modules from within the project files in the NetBeans IDE. For instance, AccountsManagement.java which you will use to add a new user account for the system; FaceEnrollment.java which you will use to enroll your face samples for the purpose of recognition and auto recognition methods.

      If you leave the records intact, you can just login normally first using any administrator's account (has a UserLevel 1). After login, you can then create your own account from within the system hence enroll your face samples and perform other tasks. But the above is the better option than this one.

      If you've done all the above already and you're still experiencing that the program detects any face, it comes to how you enroll your face samples. FaceAccess utilizes more of EigenFace algorithm hence the more the face samples you give to it, the more it will match you better and discriminate properly. Make sure when you enroll your face samples, you do it in different environment conditions such as different lightning, face angles, as well as face gestures. The more the samples you provide to the system, the more it will know you as you better!!! hence recognize only you and not somebody else who is not part of the system.

      I hope the above answers everything, if you still need any more help, please do write back. And please don't forget to comment, recommend, rate, and support the project in whatever way that you feel deserving.

      Thanks again for trying:), macdonaldgeek

    hello again, I'm back to try the software but I still appreciate any face, step I follow are: 1. Login as administrator 2. create a user accountmanager 3. leave the session 4. login with user created, using my user name and password to access the new user 5. enroll my face. Is that correct?

      Hi Gaspar! Thanks for the feedback. All the steps that you mentioned are correct. But have you done the following as according to my post above:

      "If you've done all the above already and you're still experiencing that the program detects any face, it comes to how you enroll your face samples. FaceAccess utilizes more of EigenFace algorithm hence the more the face samples you give to it, the more it will match you better and discriminate properly. Make sure when you enroll your face samples, you do it in different environment conditions such as different lightning, face angles, as well as face gestures. The more the samples you provide to the system, the more it will know you as you better!!! hence recognize only you and not somebody else who is not part of the system."

      NOTE: And make sure after enrollment, you train FaceAccess to recognize your face. Press the "Train FaceAccess" button after your face samples have been captured.

      If you're still experiencing problems with detection and recognition, try this procedure as posted above:

      "You can decide to remove all records from the installed database and start from fresh. But this will deny you access into the system from system start-up. If you do remove all records from the database, then you'll have to run the specific modules from within the project files in the NetBeans IDE. For instance, AccountsManagement.java which you will use to add a new user account for the system; FaceEnrollment.java which you will use to enroll your face samples for the purpose of recognition and auto recognition methods."

      Thanks again for trying FaceAccess. Please write back in-case of any more queries or good feedback.
