Tesla Cars Get New Dog And Sentry Modes

Tesla Dog Mode

Tesla Dog Mode

That makes it relatively affordable from a range standpoint to keep dogs cool in the auto while its parked for a short errand or a few. The answer may come as a surprise.

Tesla's Twitter showed the on-screen display for the new Sentry security system, and in a nod to 2001: A Space Odyssey, it features an ominous red robotic eye like the Hal 9000.

All Tesla cars with Autopilot 2.0. get Sentry Mode in the latest update for their vehicle.

To turn on Dog Mode go into the climate control settings and select the option labelled 'Dog, ' according to The Verge. Musk said it will be updated but didn't elaborate.

The automaker also announced a new Sentry Mode, which acts like a sophisticated dash cam.

Payless to close all 2,100 US stores
The Payless ShoeSource store at the Central Mall in Salina is one of the 2,100 that will soon be out of the business. The company's franchise operations and Latin American stores will not be affected, according to the statement.

When enabled, the auto enters a "standby" state and uses external cameras to detect potential threats.

The first is Dog Mode: This feature uses automatic sensors to maintain a comfortable temperature for pets inside the vehicle when you have to run errands, such as inside a grocery store, while also displaying a message in giant letters to passers-by who might become concerned for pets left in the auto. Onlookers may or may not see that warning.

Should a more severe threat be detected, such as window breakage, the system will go into Alarm mode and activate the car's alarm system. If a window is broken, or the auto is broken into, Sentry will sound the alarm, increase the screen brightness to full, and plays music through the audio system at maximum volume.

Owners will also receive a mobile app alert, notifying them that something has happened. Drivers will need to manually activate Sentry mode each time before leaving the auto and plug in a USB drive on to which the vehicle will upload the video.

Tesla said the new security measure began rolling out via an over-the-air software update as of Wednesday to Model 3s in the USA first, and Model Ss and Model Xs that were built after August 2017 (which means they have Autopilot 2 hardware with the B-pillar- and fender-mounted cameras).
