Always looking to leverage technology in clever ways, Tesla this past May introduced a new security-oriented feature dubbed Sentry Mode. The feature, as the name somewhat implies, records 360-degree video around a Tesla vehicle whenever a security incident such as an attempted break-in is detected. Though initially designed to catch — if not deter — thieves, the rollout of Sentry Mode has managed to capture a number of individuals slyly trying to scratch Tesla vehicles with their car keys.
The latest example comes to us out of Massachusetts where a Model 3 owner was shocked to see that a man keyed up his car in a Target parking lot for no reason whatsoever. The incident occurred late last week, with the video uploaded to YouTube just a few days later. As detailed in the YouTube description, the Model 3 owner filed a police report and the hope is that the vandal will ultimately be identified and arrested.
