Dog mode

Dog Mode protects pets from heat in the car and informs pedestrians of their safety. In other words, you can now leave pets inside your Tesla at a comfortable temperature. To enable Dog Mode tap on the fan icon and go to climate control.

Tesla updates are coming next week!

Elon just tweeted that Sentry Mode and Dog Mode will be rolling out to the fleet next week. We are excited about this one, and it’s been a while since the last software update that included significant new features. What do we know about them:

  • Sentry Mode - All your cameras would record in case of a robbery and blast music to attract attention. If this works well it would be super useful given the number of smash and grabs in areas like the Bay Area
  • Dog Mode - Car would maintain a temperature, play some soft music for your dog, and display a message on the MCU saying that the car is on climate control and monitored by the owner
