On my FaceStation 2 I have 4000 users on the device but only 2000 users have face templates (1 per user). Can I still use 1:n mode?

Yes its still below the 3000 template threshold so you can use 1:n mode. 


On my FaceStation 2 I have 3000 users with 1 face template each and I am using 1:n mode. What will happen if I add one more user with a face template?

The user will not be added through BioStar 2. If you try to force adding a user on the device such as USB import, authentication will not work for all users so please be cautious.
