Interesting. I am on .2. When they fix it, they’ll let us know. It’s on again / off again, which is not how it’s supposed to work. It should be unaffected by the radar as that wouldn’t pick up someone coming from the side, for example. It’s got to be a bug, but I think their dev team is super focused on v11 for the new Ss.Mine recorded 3 sentry mode events today. For the first time ever since I got the car on June 12th. They're all 1 minute and a half each and all had someone walking by the car either beside or behind. I didn't have any updates or anything in the last day or so. I've had 4.18.3 for a week now.
That would make sense if Sentry was new, but it’s been in the cars for 3 years or so detecting motion, etc and yes, it does have plenty of false positives, but better that than to miss an event. They’ll fix it.I bet using only camera from sentry they will have to fine tune the notifications… thinking about my home cameras and is easy for just a tree branch moving to set them off if tuned wrong…hopefully fix involves adjusting to vision only events to block out the ‘noise’? just a theory
The video is actually being recorded if Sentry mode is active. The problem is that the car cannot raise the alarm and save the video to sentry folder. I parked my car and returned in about half an hour, then reviewed the "recent" camera and found out the recording for the entire parked duration. Of course the recent recording is subject to the 1 hour rotation. And there is nothing to scare potential intruders.I'm wondering if a possible workaround would be to simply enable dashcam before exiting the vehicle? Per the owner's manual it should work as long as the vihicle is on.
I installed 2021.4.18.10 on my Model Y today and I am now finally able to get Sentry mode to work! I purchased the car about 2 weeks ago (with 2021.4.18.2) and had been doing everything under the sun to try to get it to trigger without any luck. After today's software upgrade I've been able to trigger it a number of times. Yea!
This is very good to hear! My car is currently downloading 18.10 as I type this!18.10! Finally…all is right.
I've just checked after seeing your post, and to my delight the update shows up for me as well.This is very good to hear! My car is currently downloading 18.10 as I type this!
I wonder if this version is specifically for those whose sentry mode doesn't work. I've seen people who just got 18.21 so I'm not sure what that's about. But I'm just glad that this will fix sentry mode.
