Tesla recently announced a pair of new modes that use the wealth of sensors and technologies in the company's cars to make a driver's life a little easier. The first and loveliest is the dog mode : This keeps your puppy at a comfortable temperature when you are not in the car, and he uses the jumbo indicator in the middle to indicate a message for passers-by that you'll be back soon. The other important addition is the Sentry mode, which allows you to essentially monitor the vehicle yourself by using the outdoor cameras to monitor the movement nearby and detect potential threats and choose the very literal "DOG" Option that allows you to set the temperature within preset limits. Owners of pets that are not dogs are likely to be equally well served by functionality should they stay with a furry friend in the car. Tesla rightly suggests that you still check the local laws on unattended pets in the car before relying on this new feature.
The Sentry mode is really just a logical upgrade of a basic alarm system. For example, if the Tesla discovers a person who relies on it, it will be considered a minimum threat, put into a warning state, and a notification will be displayed in the dash panel that a video recording of the event is being made. However, if a window is smashed, the alarm will sound, the display will brighten, and the speakers will start listening to music at maximum volume. All this is in addition to the obvious and usual reaction of the alarm trigger. The Sentry mode must be activated each time a user wants to rely on it, and it will download a video of all incidents to a formatted USB drive if you have connected one before turning on the mode.
The new update will be launched in the United States for "Model 3" brand vehicles from today, followed by "S" and "Model X" models built after August 201
