Are facial recognition devices affected by ageing or weight gain/loss?

We’ve been asked the following:

How does facial recognition work where we have long term employees and they are ageing.

Does facial recognition accommodate any changes in the face, for example weight gain/loss?

 
Answer: Subtle changes to the face aren’t an issue, but over time, yes, changes may take place that may change the face enough to stop it registering as well.

This isn’t an issue though because for these people you will just need to update the image by modifying their user details and get them to re-register their current face. This takes less than a minute to do.
