Tesla’s Sentry Mode was released in a free over-the-air (OTA) update in February 2019. It uses the car’s external cameras to detect potential threats. If a minimal threat is detected, such as someone leaning on a car, Sentry Mode switches to an “Alert” state and displays a message on the touchscreen warning that its cameras are recording.
