Tesla Admirers Say Hello To Tesla Sentry Mode Cameras

Video footage from Tesla’s Sentry Mode is not always pertaining to law-breaking incidents like theft or vandalism. Some footage can actually be fun and provide a sense of pride for Tesla owners. For instance, check out the following scene captured from one of Tesla’s side-repeater dashcams that showcases a couple of strangers admiring a Model 3.

Video footage from Tesla’s Sentry Mode is not always pertaining to law-breaking incidents like theft or vandalism. Some footage can actually be fun and provide a sense of pride for Tesla owners. For instance, check out the following scene captured from one of Tesla’s side-repeater dashcams that showcases a couple of strangers admiring a Model 3.

The man and woman in this latest Sentry Mode video can be seen stopping by a Model 3 to get a closer look and inspecting different areas of the car. It looks like the couple also spotted Tesla’s Sentry Mode Hal 9000 eye after it was activated on the center touchscreen.

According to the owner of this Tesla Model 3, his car was parked at his workplace parking lot when the car recorded this particular video clip. He keeps Sentry Mode on to record any potentially undesirable incident, like ones we’ve seen captured on camera in recent weeks. To his surprise, this footage actually induces smiles.

Although the video was originally posted on Reddit and received more than 7,000 upvotes, upon my request, the owner posted it on his YouTube channel.

The couple seen in this Sentry Mode clip appear to be aware of the fact that the side repeater cameras are actively recording. They’re probably Tesla fans, unlike the knuckleheads recently caught by Sentry Mode in Old Sacramento who were laughing after they vandalized a Model 3. (They weren’t laughing for long, as the vandals had to turn themselves in to the police department after the video footage went viral on social media and even local TV news.) Since that incident, the frequency of Tesla vandalism cases surfacing online appears to have dropped. In turn, as more and more awareness about this feature spreads, only hardcore criminals or those totally out of the loop will attempt to take on Tesla’s Sentry Mode.

If you’re an aspiring criminal, the key takeaway is: “Don’t mess with a Tesla,” enjoy your life, and let others drive their dream cars, especially if they’re environmentally friendly EVs. If you’re a Tesla fan, the tip is: wave to the cameras and smile.
