"Ring" style sentry mode - Push notifications with motion

A great enhancement to sentry mode would to enable the car to push notifications to your phone when motion is detected similar to a ring doorbell. When you click the notification it then streams the video feed to your phone. Along with the new speaker in front, you can also talk to the possible suspect from your phone.

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

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

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,
