A Twitter user named B.J. May shared a hilarious thread of tweets depicting his struggle to enter his own home. You see, he has one of the advanced visual scanning security cameras that checks for each person's face, and this one decided he wasn't actually B.J., but rather Bruce Wayne himself. That's right, the camera mistook him for Batman, all because of his shirt.
The camera works with an app to scan for unfamiliar faces, in which case the door will automatically lock. But this time it saw the Batman symbol and decided it didn't want anything to do with The Dark Knight. Thankfully, May's family was inside and he had a personal PIN number to enter, but still, it was a humorous story.

To answer some questions:— B.J. May (@bjmay) September 18, 2018
Yes, the door was unlocked. My family was home, and my son was in/out the front door playing.
I unlocked the door using my pin. I also could have used the phone app. It was no biggie, I just thought the face recognition fail was funny.
No, the door will not unlock if it sees a friendly face. That's not a feature. It just reacts to an unknown face by locking the door just in case you forgot to lock it and a stranger approaches. It didn't recognize Batman.— B.J. May (@bjmay) September 18, 2018
This is the Nest Hello paired with the Nest x Yale lock. I like it quite a lot. Yes, regular old keys are great. We just like the ability to remotely allow our kids into the house via the app without issuing them physical keys that can be lost/stolen.— B.J. May (@bjmay) September 18, 2018
