Tesla has offered a Sentry mode , also known as its version of a dash cam, for a while now, and it has proven to be quite popular with Tesla owners. More recently, the company promised that owners could get a live view of their vehicle’s cameras in Sentry Mode through the Tesla app , and now, according to a report last Wednesday from Electrek, that’s happening, only there is a trap.

Available only with premium connectivity

In this case, this new sentry-mode live camera access feature is offered as part of the premium connectivity package for a subscription fee of $ 10 per month . Premium connectivity debuted in 2018 and provides access to useful features like live traffic view, satellite view maps, and music and video streaming. It also provides access to less useful things like “Caraoke.”

The Sentry Mode Live Camera Access release is part of a software update to version 2021.36.8.  Tesla says that the video stream is protected by end-to-end encryption and that Tesla cannot access the images.
