  1. Where’s the test of putting your phone on the ground by the marker and see if someone can still open the door? Like if you were at a restaurant and the car was parked right outside. Bluetooth obviously close enough. Someone can get in?

  2. I just got my Tesla delivered today and I live in an apartment complex with a shared garage, so this was the FIRST question I had walking away from my car for the first time. Awesome video and great testing and explanation! You saved lots of time on Google lol!

  3. 30 ft is generally given as the range of bluetooth.
    My concern is that it will unlock when you are in the house just on the other side of the garage walls…
    If I set my phone down in the front room, I can still listen to music on my bluetooth headphones while in my driveway. Would that mean that my car is actually unlocking every time I walk to the front part of the house while it's parked in the driveway..?

  4. What about unlock? My kitchen is right above my garage, and I won't want the car to be locking / unlocking / waking up every time I go in and out of the kitchen.

  5. I noticed there is a significant time delay before the car locks when you stand next to the car and disable bluetooth on the phone. So the phone might already have been out of (un)locking range at the 5 feet mark but only locked a couple of seconds later when you reached the 25 feet mark.

  6. Another tip. If you have the app you can check the lock icon. If it’s locked it’ll show locked. If it’s unlocked it’ll show unlocked. You can even lock and unlock from the app. From any distance away. I was 300 miles away from my car and was able to lock it remotely.

  7. Also, iOS 13.1.3 fixes BT disconnect issues which should help improve the reliability of the iOS devices with our 3!

  8. Hi, thanks for the vid, interesting. Picking up my model 3, in December so will test with my phone (Samsung galaxy S10) to see if its any different. Definitely something to be aware of.

  9. Great video!!! Did great for me with me cerebral palsy! I would not have to lock the door! Do you like hocking loogies? I do it’s a guy thing lol
