Tesla Sentry Mode will soon get remote viewing of the camera. In the OTA software update 2020.48, the company could release more features for Sentry Mode, according to Tesla hacker @greentheonly. Remote camera viewing may be one of the features that could come with Tesla’s built-in sophisticated security system.
“Well, the remote camera viewing seems to be in the wings, whenever [Tesla] drop[s] it in 2020.48 or if they’ll postpone it again—I don’t know,” Green replied to Teslascope’s question about upcoming features related to Sentry Mode.
Green clarified in the same comment thread that remote camera viewing will allow car videos to be livestreamed through the Tesla phone app. How the company wants to use the remote camera viewing feature could produce some interesting results, as Tesla enthusiast @mcot2222 has pointed in his tweet.
In an array of different cases, the feature will be useful. For example, remote camera viewing will allow pet owners to keep an eye on their furry family members inside their vehicle if combined with Dog Mode and given access to Tesla’s in-cabin camera.
In the auto industry, Sentry Mode and Tesla’s built-in dashcam has resulted in one of the best and most practical vehicle safety systems. The Dashcam Viewer feature was released by Tesla in April, enabling owners to view Sentry Mode and Dashcam clips from the Launch Viewer. The clips are kept on a flash drive that can be used by Tesla owners to provide the authorities with evidence if they are ever involved in an incident while driving.
Remote camera viewing could add to the security Sentry Mode already provides to Tesla owners today.
