Tesla Sentry Mode Cookie Monster

The recently released, and already updated, Tesla Sentry Mode is a security feature for its EVs that uses the front-facing dash cam and the side cameras to record and dissuade break-ins. Apparently, every car should have a sentry mode as Tesla vehicles have already caught thieves and people damaging cars.

The latest story from ABC 7 news, is about San Francisco-based Jed Franklin and how his Tesla has already helped to make an arrest. He received an alert on his phone, via the Tesla app, that said his Sentry Mode had been activated. Upon arriving at his car he found a broken window. After downloading the cars security camera video he saw a clear image of the suspect’s face and the license plate of his car. This evidence was handed over to the police, who subsequently made an arrest.

The more this type of thing happens, and makes the news, the more criminals will take note. Tesla break-ins may become a thing of the past. Check out a few of the Tesla “caught in the act” videos after the break. (more…)
