3 Sentry mode additions

  1. Right now reviewing sentry mode is so slow. For faster reviewing: Show 4-8 pictures of what triggered the recording. When you press on a picture it rewinds to 2 second before the trigger and starts the video there. 

  2. Even if sentry mode is off, if the car is bumped on moved. It should trigger a camera or video. 

  3. Add a map overlay so you know exactly where the event happened.

Ferry mode

During this summer's vacation, i had to take a ferry numerous times with my Tesla 3. Once on the ferry, it is not allowed to stay in the car or on the car deck during the voyage. The first times, i experienced the alarm going off short time after departure, i suppose due to car being moved without driving and/or reacting to rocking due to waves. After some googling, i turned off the alarm, but this also means the whole... more »

Adjustable Sentry Mode Sensitivity Selected

Yesterday I had a fly in my car, and the internal movement sensor set off the car alarm three times in less than 30 mins. After I swatted the fly, no alarms for the rest of the day.

It would be nice to support (in order of my preference):

That the Sentry Mode can detect the difference between major movement in the car and unwanted insects

That I can somehow lower the sensitivity of the internal sensor manually

That... more »

Sentinel without flashing light

would be nice to be able to chose to have light flashing or not with Sentinel mode. Light flashing can be perceived as aggressive and result in bad actions against the car. I think being able to chose would be be a good thing. I see a number of Tesla users on Forums who would like this possibility.

Many thanks for your consideration.

Best regards,

Stream video during sentry event

Wouldn't it be swell if during a sentry trigger event, the tesla mobile app could receive a video stream of what is happening? This could help you determine immediate steps, e.g. If you see someone bothering your car, call 911, versus if you see a child bumped into it walking by, you can go and turn off the alarm.

 

Not only would this help prevent putting a user in danger (who wants to go confront someone who is trying... more »

Sentry Proximity

I would like to suggest that Sentry Mode has a proximity setting. I find it often is a bit too sensitive due to people passing the car on a pavement / walkway etc. So being able to set Sentry to a very close proximitry, where it only triggers when someone is literally next to the car would be useful.

Perhaps several fixed settings of proximity to choose from or a setting which can be adjusted manually to set your own... more »

Download Sentry Mode Recording from Tesla Website for older cars

For those of us who don't have the capability to record onto USB, such as pre-August 2017 cars, it would be great to be able to download video from Tesla via our online account.

According to the car manual, "When the alarm state is triggered, the most recent six seconds prior to the security event may be to Tesla for temporary backup for approximately 72 hours..."

Why not allow us to simply login to our online Tesla... more »

Use scroll wheel to scan Sentry Mode footage Edited

The video footage could be rewinded 10s or jump forwards 10s using one the steering wheel scroll wheels. The other scroll wheel could be used for every 5s.

You should also be able to do this by tapping twice to the right or left of the video on the touchscreen. 

Additionally, add a button on the touchscreen to view the next or previous 10s (like in YouTube app)
