Ilon Musk: Tesla electric cars will soon receive a "watch mode"

Tesla owners will soon have the opportunityobserve the damage (and record them) that occur with their transport when it is left unattended. Tesla presents Tesla Sentry Mode - “Tesla Sentry Mode” - for all cars with advanced autopilot (Enhanced Autopilot). About this CEO Ilon Mask said in a tweet. Musk did not disclose any additional information regarding when this function will be available and how exactly it will work.

As the name suggests, the function will “stand onguard ”, so to speak, either by supporting a working DVR in the parking lot, or automatically turning it on if the car collides with something or hits something. Most likely, it will work as a normal DVR with the function of automatic inclusion on impact. However, the details are not so much.

In October, Tesla released version 9.0 of its software, which included a number of updates, including a new user interface on the central display and the ability to use the built-in cameras in front of the car as a DVR. The function of the DVR is only available in Tesla cars, released after August 2017.

The current function of the DVRAllows owners to record and save videos taken with the car's front camera on a USB flash drive. But first, owners must configure a USB flash drive in Windows or MS-DOS and add a folder at a basic level called TeslaCam. Then the customized USB flash drive can be inserted into one of the USB ports in front of the car. When properly configured, the DVR icon appears on the status bar as a red dot, indicating that recording is in progress.

Owners can click on the icon to save a 10-minute video clip, or hold down the icon and pause the recording. Entries that have not been uploaded are automatically deleted.

I wonder what other features will be added to Tesla in the future. Try to suggest in our chat in Telegram.
