Sentry Mode continuously monitors your car’s surroundings while it’s locked and parked. When enabled, the car automatically enters the Standby state with its cameras and sensors remain powered to detect potential threats and trigger an appropriate response state: Alert or Alarm. To enable Sentry Mode, go to Controls > Safety & Security > Sentry Mode.
If a minimal threat is detected, such as someone leaning on your car, Sentry Mode switches to the Alert state, displaying a message on your touchscreen indicating that cameras are recording.
If a major threat is detected, such as someone breaking a window, Sentry Mode switches to the Alarm state. In this state, the car alarm activates, the audio system generates a loud and unexpected sound, the message on the touchscreen increases to maximum brightness, and you receive a notification on your mobile app.
Dashcam To save the video clip captured while in Sentry Mode, you must insert a formatted USB flash drive into one of your front USB ports beforehand.
Sentry Mode requires more than 20% battery to operate. If your battery falls below 20% while the feature is active, Sentry Mode turns off and you receive a notification on your mobile app.
Note that Sentry Mode is designed to enhance the security of your car, but cannot protect your car from all possible threats.
