Yes, we sourced those parts and installed the first Blackvue's in 2014. I had them on me 2013 and on my 2017.

Took a while to id everything as there was no help from Tesla. Lots of people were using a 4 pin doggle that connected for power to a computer fan, but it didn't secure/fit properly.

A little history for you. This connector has nothing to do with TeslaCam mode.. The connector is for an an intrusion detection device that was required available in EU, then made available in the U.S. Sentry is watching the outside of the car. Intrusion Detection was when movement inside the car was triggered. Even so far as breaking glass and motion created when someone got in, stuck their hand in and started grabbing stuff.
