Here’s what Tesla Dashcam’s side cameras are able to see and record on video



Tesla recently improved its Dashcam attribute by enabling vehicles from their side cameras, ultimately providing near video surveillance capacities.

The over-the-air software update for Model S, Model X, and Model 3 cars with Autopilot 2.5 hardware was part of a bigger release that also contained Tesla’s Sentry Mode: a security feature which also leverages the vehicle’s side cameras for detection of intrusion or potential act of vandalism.

“Dashcam can now record and store video footage s side cameras along with the camera that is that is narrow. As usual, the Dashcam icon will be shown in the status bar with a red dot. Tap the icon to save 10-minute video clips or press and hold to pause recording. ” notes Tesla in its v9.0 release notes.

A Model 3 owner posted a Tesla Dashcam video to Youtube which provides a good look on the degree of coverage a vehicle’s narrow front-facing camera and side cameras are able to supply.

Accidents or close encounters which take place in a Tesla’s spots are captured in comprehensive detail, although without noise. Together with video files from directly in front of the car and one can see that Model S, Model X and Model 3 owners who opt to utilize the vehicle’s native dash cam feature are provided a level of coverage beyond popular, aftermarket Tesla dashcam solutions.

An individual can expect future iterations of Tesla’s Dashcam attribute to include video recording. Tesla Autopilot is able to leverage a total of eight encircle cameras to provide 360 degrees of visibility around a car.
