Try out the Smart Mirror AI (Beta) face detection module. It’s as simple as downloading the image and writing to your SD card for your Raspberry Pi 4.
Smart Mirror AI Beta (1.0) includes:
Pre-requisites: This beta only supports Raspberry Pi 4.
Visit the smart mirror Github repo, on how to add your face your Magic Mirror
Face Recognition Module:
1) Note: Ensure you have a Raspberry Pi Camera Module attached to the Pi - and enabled via sudo raspi-config.
On start-up: The Face Detection model would automatically run on start without Keyboard input(Use CTRL + M to minimise mirror interface)

In order to deactivate the autostart of face-recognition-SMAI.py (in LXTerminal at boot).
Go to the Pi directory, Right-click, show hidden files, and open up .bashrc
sudo nano /home/pi/.bashrc
Remove the line at the bottom. This is what autostarts at boot:
sudo python3 /home/pi/dlib/build/face_recognition/examples/MMM-Face-Recognition-SMAI.py
