Tesla offers several features in the name of convenience and security. While these features improve the interaction and also the daily use of the vehicle, they can also use energy unnecessarily. Features like Sentry Mode and Cabin Overheat Protection can indeed have a lot of impact on range. That said, if you have a Tesla and change this you will gain more autonomy!

Utilizing the external cameras, Sentry Mode adds a layer of protection by continuously monitoring the environment around the car to record any suspicious activity. If your Tesla spends 11 days with Sentinel Mode turned on, it is likely to revert to a Tesla without power. In contrast, parked Teslas with Sentry Mode turned off can go up to 20 days without needing a charge. This issue can be especially problematic if you leave your car unattended while on vacation. This way, you can deactivate sentinel mode during holidays or at times when you don’t have a charging station nearby and really need autonomy.
Despite being an excellent safety and comfort feature, the cabin protection system is another item that can drain your battery. Try to deactivate the function when you are low on power or simply to avoid draining your battery quickly. Select Controls > Cab Overheat Protection and then just make the change.
It is true that the functions I mentioned above can be important in some circumstances. However, you probably won’t need Sentry Mode if your home has security cameras or the Cab Overheat Protection feature if you park in a garage or underground car park.
That said, making the right choices is not that difficult to gain kms on your Tesla. In addition, in an electric vehicle, all the autonomy that we can achieve is always welcome.
However, in the midst of all this, we should also pay some attention to the Energy app. All because it was designed to help maximize efficiency through suggestions based on our driving habits. The app basically flags the things that are consuming energy whether it’s driving style, battery conditioning, weather, and so on. You can access the Power monitor by opening the apps menu and clicking the Power icon on the dashboard touchscreen or via the Tesla app.
