Tesla’s ‘Sentry Mode’ with 360 degree dash cam is coming in 2 to 3 weeks, says Elon Musk



The first beta edition of Tesla’s Sentry Mode is coming in 2 to 3 weeks, according to CEO Elon Musk. The upcoming security feature that’s expected to add 360-degree video recording abilities to each of Tesla Model S, Model X, and Model 3 vehicles outfitted with Autopilot 2.5 hardware, comes in reaction to owners looking for better ways to protect their cars from vandalism and break-ins.

Tesla proprietor Andy Sutton took to Twitter to contact Musk and share a photograph of his red Model 3 with a massive dent in the doorway. “Found this creature dent this morning, directly in front of the back facing cameras. Wish there was 360 dash camera feature while parked. ” Musk took note and confessed that a Sentry Mode has been ‘coming and could address the problem.

Now the Tesla CEO has supported time for the first version of its vehicle surveillance feature. Tesla owners, for example workers, who’ve been chosen to participate in the company’s personal beta testing application  is going to be the first to receive the approaching over-the-air software update.

Sentry Mode, a nod to Iron Man‘s redundant defense mechanism for JARVIS, is designed to expand Tesla’s built-in dash camera system and leverage eight surrounding cameras for video recording versus a single. The electrical carmaker introduced the first iteration of the Tesla Dashcam feature in September 2018 when it began to roll out the highly-anticipated Version 9.0 software update. The Dashcam feature empowered Model S, Model X, and Model 3 with upgraded Autopilot hardware to capture video clips which were captured via the car.

As Musk pointed out at the past, the first variant of Tesla Dashcam was inserted into Version 9.0 since Tesla engineering rallied to roll the feature, but could be accompanied by improvements from Version 9.1 – hence paving the for attributes like Tesla Sentry Mode.
