React Native

How to install the Regula Face SDK.


  • For iOS, the minimum target is iOS 11.0.

  • For Android, the minimum Android API level is 21.


The Face SDK is available on npm.

Run the following command to add the SDK to the project:

npm install @regulaforensics/react-native-face-api

Huawei Vision

Huawei Vision is used for face detection in video stream using Huawei services.

Devices that do not have Google Mobile Services (GMS) such as Huawei need to include the Huawei Vision library. This means that to run the Face SDK on a Huawei device or any other device that has GMS disabled, it is necessary to integrate the Huawei Vision library. In this case, the Huawei or Honor device is automatically identified, and Huawei Vision is used.

Add the dependency, if needed:

npm install @regulaforensics/react-native-face-huawei-vision

Import the Face SDK

You should now be able to import face_api:

import FaceSDK from '@regulaforensics/react-native-face-api';
