News Tesla Sentry Mode Will Guard Your Parked Car

Tesla Sentry Mode Will Guard Your Parked Car

A Tesla owner wrote on Twitter that he wanted a surveillance system to catch the person who dinged his Model 3’s door. Elon Musk responded.

There will be a Sentry Mode on every Tesla with the Enhanced AutoPilot package. The surveillance mode that will keep an eye on your vehicle’s surroundings when it is parked will be available with the next update.

Although Musk didn’t provide a host of details, we assume that Tesla Sentry Mode will use a camera system to watch a vehicle’s surroundings when it is parked and the owner is away. In doing so, it will be able to catch whoever may ding a Tesla’s doors or attempt to steal it or damage it in any way.

There have been a string of vandalism and obstruction instances at Tesla superchargers in recent months as well. If a Tesla is parked in one of the stations, the Sentry system could also help reduce those as well in theory.

A summon mode is also planned by Tesla. Like Sentry Mode, few details were given on that new feature but the idea is that Tesla vehicles could drive short distances without a driver on their way to their owner. The car could back out of the garage, for example.

Tesla is all about technology. It’s fitting that it would offer the first built-in surveillance system for when a vehicle is parked and locked.
