Description

Offer the ability to via a cell phone over the cellular connection the current video from the front and review cameras.   This might only be available when parked and as a plus would have recording abilities.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

Would it be possible for Tesla …or some 3rd party programmer …to make the smartphone /iPhone system (is it Visible Tesla?) to remotely switch on and access the front and/ or the rear cameras of the cars when they are parked?  That way you could monitor your car when parked in a dodgy area or car park, and maybe even record suspicious activity!

You could even monitor people entering your property if your car is parked in your drive.
But I guess the do-gooders, might say it is an intrusion into civil liberties, but that would be no different to CCTV in open places! Anyway, if they leave my property .. and that of others alone, there should be no problem!

I would have thought it would be easy to set up.

(Editor: We believe due to the current Tesla hardware design, the video feed cannot be feed into the cellular connection, but we may be wrong and/or hardware could be redesigned in the future to allow this feature)

If it is too expensive to use 3G it could use local wifi from a house or th garage next to the drive
I think this is a nice leveraging of the Tesla standard equipment as well as a good idea.
I would think this really makes sense for WIFI only (with a WPA2 password at least). This means that you have to have some access to the facilities at the premises and if you own the premises you should be able to record there.
This would be a wifi feature ...and be a dash cam too saving 1 minute of video before over writing
It would be nice if it could send you images and/or alerts when it detects your car is bumped and/or tampered with.
