Default Scanning without root with sane

I have a scanner that I use with scanimage(1) from sane:
ugen0 at uhub3 port 2 "STMicroelectronics Biometric Coprocessor" rev 1.00/0.01 addr 2
It won’t detect the device if not root, even with chmod 777 /dev/ugen0* (which I know is a very bad idea). This is annoying when I forget to change the ownership of the resulting scanned image back to me.

I saw that -current has a saned rc.d(8) script, so I ran “/etc/rc.d/saned start” in hopes of it Just Working, but got the same results—no device detection with scanimage(1) without root. The saned man page seemed to mostly be about network configuration, and I’m running locally.

Does anyone run sane without needing root? If so, how?
Many thanks to the forum regulars who put time and effort into helping others solve their problems.
