Intel has been selling its RealSense hardware development kit for a while, but again thus far it has been the only third-party company offering a peripheral to support the new security feature. Furthermore, if you try to get one, it can be hard to find it in stock, as the demand for the $120 kit is very high. It’s really strange that we’re not seeing many companies creating devices with support for Windows Hello when clearly anyone who knows about the feature wants to have it. Although, it’s unclear when we’re going to see more peripherals and computers supporting Windows Hello, if you want to use the feature today, you now have another solution. You can use your Xbox One Kinect with a special cable to connect it to your Windows 10 device and a set of beta drivers from the Kinect for Windows developer program. Once you have all the required equipment, you need to connect your Xbox One Kinect to your Windows 10 device and follow the steps below.

Use Xbox One Kinect with Windows Hello in Windows 10

That’s all there is to it. After your computer reboots, open the Settings app using Windows + I keyboard shortcut, go to Accounts > Sign-in options, and setup Windows Hello. Lastly, it’s important to note that the Kinect sensor must be plugged into a USB 3.0 port in your computer as it’s required for the device to work properly.
