"While no alarm system can prevent against all vehicle thefts, break-ins and threats, we hope that with Sentry Mode and our other security features, your Tesla will be even more secure", said Tesla. You must re-enable this feature with every use.
To turn on Dog Mode, owners will first need to tap the fan icon at the base of the touchscreen when their vehicle is parked.
Unlike a traditional gas-powered vehicle that makes noise as it idles, an electric auto doesn't produce an audible growl when switched on because it uses stored powered in its high-voltage batteries to perform essential functions instead of actively combusting gas.
"Dog Mode" allows drivers to set a cabin temperature to keep canines comfortable-and, importantly, let passersby know the animals are OK.
In 2016, Tesla updated its software to include Cabin Overheat Protection, which keeps the auto at a "safe temperature" for hours, even when the motor is turned off. Should the owner be absent for an extended period of time, and the car's battery reaches less than 20%, a notification will be sent to the owner's mobile app.

California Scraps Plan For LA-San Francisco High Speed Rail
Newsom said contractors and consultants would be held more accountable in the future, with details of expenditure to go online. The main reason: if the project was canceled the state would have to return $3.5 billion from the federal government.
This week Tesla cars will receive an update, which includes a "dog mode".
If a minor threat is detected - such as someone leaning on the vehicle - the system will switch to an "alert" mode, displaying a message on the touchscreen that warns the person they are being recorded.
For a more severe threat, like someone breaking a window, the mode activates the vehicle alarm, increases the brightness of the center display, plays loud music and alerts owners on their Tesla mobile app.
Sentry Mode adds a unique layer of protection to Tesla vehicles by continuously monitoring the environment around a auto when it's left unattended.
