Tesla once again proves that it stands out from other manufacturers – in this case, that it also thought about passengers in the form of animals. The latest software update for his cars includes new plugs, including – Dog mode.
It is activated with a single button, and it controls the temperature inside the car and regulates it to a safe value regardless of the season. In addition, it displays on a large touch panel inside the car information that the dog locked in the car has the right conditions and that the owner will be back soon – this is for those who would consider breaking the glass to save a pet.
Another convenience is Sentry mode – the guard mode – which, when activated, will cause a parked and locked car to look after itself. External cameras will constantly monitor the space around the car, and when they detect even the slightest movement or touch, e.g. a person leaning against the hood, the system will go into standby mode, display a notification on the touch panel and start recording the image from the cameras. In the event of a threat, for example, breaking a window, it will start a “disco”, the purpose of which will be to scare away a potential burglar – it will set the maximum brightness of the dashboard and the loudspeakers will start playing music at the highest volume. If this enhanced alarm is triggered, the owner will receive a message via the Tesla mobile app. This “guard” must also be activated with the appropriate button, when we find that additional protection is needed. You must remember to connect an external drive to the USB port – otherwise the image from the cameras will not be saved.
The new update is now available on model 3, and will soon also appear on S and X models produced after August 2017.
