On my FaceStation 2 I have 5,000 users on the device but only 4,000 users have face templates (1 per user). Can I still use 1:n mode?
Yes it´s still below the 4000 face user threshold so you can use 1:N mode.
On my FaceStation 2 I have 4,000 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. You should disable Face Only Mode and use 1:1 Face Matching to add more than 4,000 users.
From FaceStation 2 v1.4 or higher version, the maximum user capacity of 1:N Face Matching is 4,000 users.
