Q&A List  

1.  Can thermal camera work for the visitor who does not have face enrolled before?

We have an option to check the temperature only. You can use the option. Once the option is enabled, the device will check the temperature only without user authentication.

2.  In the event logs of BioStar 2 v2.8.2.90x when I use temperature checking only, the user ID says something strange number, which is 4561234 ( like this). Is that possible to be changed as unknown or something looks good?

This is as designed. 

The virtual user ID 4294967295 is displayed when there is check temperature success".

3.  Just to clarify, you said that if we have Biostar version 2.8.3 or 2.8.4 or 2.8.5 we cannot use the thermal camera. Is that correct, please?

Yes, we will support that to BioStar v2.8.6 officially.

4.  Can I install the thermal camera without the corestation, just to let it work alone?

Suprema Thermal Camera is supported in FS2 only currently.  You cannot use TCM10-FS2 as a RS485 slave device.
