To use the OpenCV Face Recognition Python SDK, first register at the OpenCV Face Recognition Developer Portal.
Doing so will provide you with a Master/Admin key for administering your account/subscriptions, and also, with a starter Developer Key.
You can use your Master/Admin key to create/disable/delete Developer Keys, and to manage your subscription plans, and payments.
To use this SDK, you only need a Developer Key, and one was provisioned at the time of registering on our Developer Portal (after registering, please check your email if you don't have a Developer Key handy)
With your Developer Key handy, you can simply
pip install our SDK as shown below:
pip install opencv-face-recognition
Import and initialize SDK
Since our SDK supports multiple regions, you need to initialize it with a respective
BACKEND_URL indicating the region you would like to host your data in, and also with a
DEVELOPER_KEY. To do so, execute code snippet below with respective region:
# Import the SDK from opencv.fr import FR # Define the region, and developer key # SG: "https://sg.opencv.fr" # US: "https://us.opencv.fr" # EU: "https://eu.opencv.fr" BACKEND_URL = "https://sg.opencv.fr" DEVELOPER_KEY = "8zt.......................................ZmQ2" # Initialize the SDK sdk = FR(BACKEND_URL, DEVELOPER_KEY)
Now we are ready to use the SDK to perform various operations.
