Tesla Rolls Out Sentry Mode

Feb. 14, 2019
Tesla rolled out on Wednesday a new safety feature called "sentry mode" for its electric cars in a bid to make its vehicles more attractive to consumers.

Feb. 14, 2019—Tesla rolled out Wednesday a new safety feature called "sentry mode", according to  CNBC.

The feature will be compatible with U.S. Model 3 vehicles, followed by Model S and Model X vehicles that were manufactured after Aug. 2017, the electric carmaker said.

When enabled, the feature monitors the environment around an unattended car and uses the vehicle's external cameras to recognize a threat. If someone broke a window, for example, the mode activates the car alarm, increases the brightness of the display, plays loud music and alerts owners on their Tesla mobile app.

The United States had 773,139 motor vehicles stolen in 2017 - the highest since 2009, according to data from the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation.
