Tesla vehicles were the target of break-ins recently and the automaker is now giving some safety tips to owners in order to avoid them ahead of the upcoming new feature.
As we previously reported, the Tesla vehicles have been subject to a series of breakthroughs over the past few months, when it becomes clear that some thieves target vehicles for parking. Now Tesla turned to the owners to give them security advice by email.
We received reports from owners of Tesla in Los Angeles and the Gulf area, which reported the majority of breakthroughs, about receiving these letters over the past week.
Tesla wrote in an e-mail:
As a model 3 you can make your car even safer by activating additional security features. To enable these features, go to Control> Safety and security on the touch screen of your car.
- Attach to drive: four-digit test is required to start the car
- Manual entry: turn off passive input via Tesla application card for driving
- Security alarm: activated when a locked trunk or door opens without a valid Entry key
This is a feature that will mainly prevent someone from stealing a car, but breakouts mainly concerned the theft of items inside vehicles or often left empty, but cut off the window.
Tesla's email also tells of the upcoming "Sentry Mode" mode, the function of which CEO Elon Mask has branched out over the past few months

"Soon, Sentry Mode will be included on your model 3 through the update of the air software, and will control the environment of your car while it is parked. When a potential threat is detected, the cameras in your car will start recording, and the alarm will be activated. "
Here's a feature that owners hope to help break the breakthrough, but Tesla has given more advice until then:
]" Meanwhile, for owners who seek to prevent theft, we also recommend removing valuable items from your car and leave the rear seats with folded trunks when parked. "
Musk said that Tesla could release" Sentry Mode "& # 39; as
The automaker started pushing for a new software update yesterday, but it did not include this feature.
Tesla also released a new Enhanced Antitheft System for Model S and Model X to help with the situation.
