I have heard much about break-ins lately. Does that mean Sentry mode is doing its job ?
Break-ins come in waves. My guess is that they're at their worst around the holiday season. Think it's too soon to tell if Sentry is having an impact (although I sure hope it does!).
Sentry Mode may be having a psychological effect, similar to areas where law-abiding people can carry a (legally) concealed weapon, in that thieves are likely aware that Teslas are now equipped with Sentry Mode, and they cannot tell at a glance whether it is enabled, so they find an easier (less obnoxious) target. The "holiday season" theory also makes sense. We won't know until this year's holiday season, I guess.
"Evidence that shall-issue concealed-carry laws may increase violent crime is limited. Evidence for the effect of shall-issue laws on total homicides, firearm homicides, robberies, assaults, and rapes is inconclusive."
