Windows 7: Windows upgrade to 10 camera login

Windows upgrade to 10 camera login

Hi I have a desktop PC not a laptop with a built in camera. I do however have a Microsoft LifeCam 3000. Can I use this as the info on TV states it is a special camera?

Not sure if this helps you.

Microsoft's Windows Hello will let you log in to Windows 10 with your face, finger, or eye | PCWorld

The catch, if there is one, appears to be the hardware. In a video (embedded below) Microsoft notes that Hello will require “specialized hardware, including [a] fingerprint reader, illuminated IR sensor or other biometric sensors.” That would imply that the laptop would need a built-in Kinect-like sensor, either one designed by Microsoft—such as Kinect for Windows—or a RealSense sensor from Intel. (Microsoft said that all PCs incorporating the Intel F200 RealSense 3D Camera will support the facial and iris unlock features of Windows Hello, including the automatic sign-in to Windows, as well as unlocking “Passport” without the need for a PIN.)

A Microsoft spokeswoman also confirmed that Hello will not work with an ordinary Webcam.

Hello otuatail, :)

You'll need an Intel RealSense F200 webcam below for facial recognition with Windows Hello. Unfortunately, Intel is currently out of stock, and only taking reservation for now.
