California [USA], February 14 (ANI): Your swanky new Tesla and your beloved pooch are finally safe, thanks to the two new features rolling out this week.
After repeated requests for a feature that would allow owners to see what happened to their parked Tesla cars when they were away, the company has introduced the Sentry Mode.
As described in the official blog, the Sentry Mode adds a layer of protection to the Tesla vehicles by continuously monitoring the environment around a car that is left unattended.
When enabled, the mode enters a standby state and uses the car’s external camera systems to detect potential threats. If any suspicious activity is observed, it displays a message on the touchscreen warning that the cameras are recording.
For severe threats, the mode activates the car alarm, increases the brightness of the center display and plays music at maximum volume from the car’s audio to gain attention of onlookers. It also sends an alert to the owner’s connected smartphone app.
The Dog Mode, on the other hand, keeps the cabin temperature comfortable for your pet pooch. It also displays a message on the screen informing passerby that they don’t need to worry as the owner will be back in sometime. (ANI)
