Came back to a bad door dent in parking lot at the grocery store. Sentry was off. Any chance I can get the footage?

I immediately checked camera footage after seeing the dent (picture attached), but didn’t see any recordings. Looks like maybe a shopping cart, but it’s a pretty big dent for that IMO

Any chance I can obtain the footage anywhere else? Or does it just not exist if it’s not recorded on my USB?
Thanks in advance

That’s what I thought. I actually don’t remember turning it off (I have it set as always on)


Probably during a software update. I think its dumb you have to disable sentry. Thea app should just have you confirm disabling sentry then automatically enable it after it’s done.

Apparently you can get a guy to pop out the dent pretty convincingly for a few hundred
