Automation - FaceFamiliarDetection

I recently saw the post that you can add automations based on familiar face detection:

https://www.googlenestcommunity.com/t5/Blog/Camera-events-custom-notifications-and-more-now-availabl...

In there it highlights a start type device.event.facefamiliardetection and the fact that you need the Nest Aware subscription. I do have it but I'm not seeing this event come up when I'm attempting to write the automation, has anyone else experienced this? Is there other pre-requisites for this to appear?

Same thing for me, I have the Nest Aware subscription and Nest and Doorbells cameras... However, I live in France there may be a geographical restriction because of European laws... That would be not the first time

I'm having the exact same issue: Nest Aware subscription and Nest doorbell, no recognition of the familiar face detection event in my automations. And I'm in the US, so it isn't necessarily country-specific.

ok good news that this is not linked to the country, we are used to being restrained in Europe ... either because of the laws or because Google mainly favors the USA

Hmm, perhaps there's a propagation element to it, not everyone has access right away, although that's not what the article says.

Has anyone been able get this to work with Auto complete, correctly?  I just manually type the "device.event.FaceFamiliarDetection" into starter -> type!

I have been trying to key off JSON state field for FaceFamiliarDetectionEvent, but the list of supported field paths: [] is empty?  Do I need to update my Google Chrome browser or browser settings?

I am not sure what <fieldpath> in the JSON structure I should be keying off!

# ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ #
# Lines starting with “#” are comments and will be ignored by the automation.
# Indentation determines hierarchy within the script.
# Visit g.co/home/script-editor-docs for full documentation.
# ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ #

metadata:
name: Familiar Face at My Home
description: When familiar face arrives at my home, send a broadcast throughout the home.

automations:
# “starters” and “actions” are required; “conditions” are optional.
# Use Ctrl + Space to see autocomplete suggestions.

# ---- STARTERS ---- #
# Starters describe events that will start the automation.
# To add more than one starter, duplicate the "- type" section under "starters".
# If you add multiple starter events, any one of them happening will start the automation.
starters:
- type: device.event.FaceFamiliarDetection
   device: Entryway Stairway Camera - Entryway
   eventData: <field path>
   is: Chunk
   #faces:
   # - Chunk
   for: 5 minutes

I can use device.event.FaceFamiliarDetection but not a specific face name yet. I guess it's not available untill this page gets updates

Poeria,

Thank you for responding!  I was able to use FaceFamiliarDetection, but not a specific face name either.  I agree the feature is not yet completed!  I saw they same information when I entered the post.

Did anyone figure out how to use FaceFamiliarDetection with a specific face name? or it that feature still not available a year later

I haven't tried again since last year, but it wouldn't surprise me if it still wasn't working...
