Tesla Model S: Dashcam and Sentry Mode

NOTE: Depending on market region, vehicle configuration, options purchased, and software version, your vehicle may not be equipped with Dashcam or Sentry Mode or the features may not operate exactly as described. Please note it is your sole responsibility to consult and comply with all local regulations and property restrictions regarding the use of cameras.

In addition to supporting Autopilot, the exterior cameras can record and store video footage of the vehicle's surroundings on a USB flash drive. This can be convenient in situations where you want a video recording of a particular incident. If set to AUTO, Dashcam saves video recordings of collisions when driving. On the other hand, if enabled, Sentry Mode is the alarm system that monitors the environment around your vehicle when it is locked and in Park. After an incident is detected, Sentry Mode responds according to the level of threat detected.

NOTE: For saving Sentry Mode and Dashcam footage, Tesla recommends using the USB port located in the glovebox. Doing so increases security and minimizes power consumption.

NOTE: You can use the glovebox USB port to store a combination of dashcam, Sentry Mode, and Track Mode content in addition to audio files.

NOTE: Dashcam and Sentry Mode will not record video when Dashcam is OFF.

NOTE: To protect your privacy, video recordings are saved locally to onboard memory or the USB flash drive. Recordings are not sent to Tesla.
