Tesla introduces Dog Mode to keep furry friends cool

Tesla Model X Showcase

Dog Mode isn't the only new feature for Tesla.

This week Tesla cars will receive an update, which includes a "dog mode".

The new mode can be activated with a push of a button and activates the car's clime control mode, regulating the temperature to a safe degree no matter how hot it is outside the vehicle.

Yes, before you ask, running the air condition while parked on a hot summer day is going to drink your battery like there's no tomorrow*, so don't plan on leaving your pet in the auto for a full day while you head off to Disneyland, but it should make quick trips to the store easier with your favorite furry friend.

Amazon has been surprisingly absent from the discussion, but that's changing as the online retailer has invested in Aurora. And on the earnings call, CEO Elon Musk said the company would be profitable for "all quarters going forward ".

Tesla has also rolled out a new security feature called "sentry mode".

Sentry Mode is created to add another layer of protection to your auto, but it will not prevent against all possible threats. When a potential threat is detected, the cameras on your vehicle will begin recording, and the alarm system will activate. In this mode, it displays a message on the large internal touchscreen to let the person know that the external cameras are recording. The video recording is able to be reviewed only if a formatted USB is plugged into the car's system before turning on sentry mode, which you can do by going to Controls Safety & Security Sentry Mode on your center screen. If your Tesla's' battery dips below 20% while in Dog Mode you'll get an alert to your Tesla app on your mobile phone.

If enabled, the Sentry Mode system will enter a standby mode when the Tesla vehicle is left unattended. Not only did it build an unbelievable vehicle lineup that has loads of great features today - it built a platform that can roll in features that had not even been considered when the auto was produced.
