Familiar face automation events

Community Member

I was hoping to create a Google home automation based upon familiar face recognition, but saw the only event available is "when doorbell rings". 

It would be great if you could utilise familiar face detection to be a trigger for a Google home automation. For example:

When my own face is detected at my front door, and if it is past a certain time (so likely dark), turn on my hallway lights.

That is just one use case, but I'm sure there are plenty of others that people would find useful.

Hi Sminarz,


Thanks for reaching out. I totally understand that this is a good trigger to use with your home automation, but it isn’t available. I'd suggest you submit feedback about it, here's how.
