PlayStation Camera: Setup Info

With the PlayStation Camera, you can teach your PS4 system to recognize you at a glance, use voice chat in your games or to access system commands, connect with the world via game broadcasts, and more.

Connecting your PlayStation Camera

Connect the PlayStation Camera cable to the PS4 via the AUX port located on the back of the system.

Place the PlayStation Camera on a level surface, with the camera itself directly facing the area where you'll be seated as you play.

If the camera is not recognized by the PS4 system, disconnect the camera cable, and then reconnect it. If the camera is still not recognized, turn off the PS4 system, and turn it on again.
You can adjust the angle of the camera up and down by manually tilting the camera. Do this by holding the right end of the camera in place, and then gently twisting the body of the camera until it's at your preferred setting.
To set up face recognition with your PlayStation Camera

You can simply show your face to the PlayStation Camera, and have it recognize you. You can store your facial data either during PS4 system setup, or later through [Settings] > [Login Settings] > [Enable Facial Recognition].

When you begin the calibration process, the PlayStation Camera will search for and highlight your face. If your camera has difficulty identifying you, you can try adjusting the room brightness or changing the angle of the camera to be as direct as possible.
Once your face is identified, follow the on-screen instructions for tilting your head to properly store the necessary data.
Only the most recent face data stored is used. To update, go to [Settings] > [Login Settings] > [Facial Recognition Management] > [Add Face Data].
Only one face can be recognized per individual profile. Make sure you're logged in to the correct PS4 system profile before adding your face data.
Facial data is stored only to your PS4, and is not shared.
Facial recognition is not intended as a security feature. To secure your PS4 profile, be sure to add a Passcode.
To Login with Face Recognition:

If face recognition is set up correctly, a small video image will display in the screen where you are prompted to assign the DUALSHOCK4 wireless controller to a user profile on the PS4 system. Follow these directions to log in to the User Profile that has your face data associated with it.

Present your face to the PlayStation Camera. If your face is recognized, the video image will expand in size to fill the screen. Next, the system will display the name of the User Profile that's associated with your face along with a picture of the DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller.
Remain in view of the camera, face the light bar on your DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller toward the camera and hold it to align with the controller picture that's shown on your screen. Doing this correctly will log your user profile in on the PS4 system.
To delete stored facial data:

Go to [Settings] > [Login Settings] > [Face Recognition Management].
Select [Delete], then press the X button.
Choose [OK] and press the X button on the next screen to remove all data.
To use your PlayStation Camera while Broadcasting:

You can add personality to your live gameplay broadcasting on PS4 by using the PlayStation Camera to show your face picture-in-picture as you play.

While playing a game, click the Share button on the controller and choose [Broadcast Gameplay].
On the next page, choose your preferred service for live streaming. Create a new account, or log in to your existing account to set up your stream.
Choose [OK] and press the X button on the next screen to remove all data.
Before you start broadcasting check the [Include Video from PlayStation Camera] in Broadcast options. Additionally, you can also check "Include Microphone Audio in Broadcast" to use voice chat via the PlayStation Camera while you stream.
To mute the microphone on the PlayStation Camera

You must have system software update 1.60 to use this feature. To mute the micrphone on the camera:

Press and hold down the PS button on your controller. Then naviagate to [Settings] > [Devices] > [PlayStation Camera].
Place a check mark in the box for the [Mute Microphone for PlayStation Camera] option.
To use voice with your PlayStation Camera

Once your PlayStation Camera is connected to and recognized by your PS4 system, you'll be able to chat with your friends in multiplayer games, even without a headset. You can also use voice commands to interact with the system software.

To use in-game chat, ensure that voice chat is enabled for that particular game, and then simply speak aloud while playing to talk to your teammates.

When using a headset, the headset microphone will be recognized as the default voice input device instead of the PlayStation Camera's microphone.
Speak clearly and at a moderate volume for the best results.
