Sentry Mode was offered to Tesla customers as a software upgrade in February. The vehicle uses its cameras to switch on and record when there is a threat such as a person leaning on the car.
Jed was able to capture in full view a pulling up in a white sedan in front of his Model 3, get out of the vehicle, sneak around to the passenger side and use a small tool to break into a backseat window.
