Alarm Mode and Lightening


I Dont Need Cialis. I Drive an EV.

Has anyone had issue with the Alarm being set off by either lightening or thunder? Its happened several times and I don't know what the exact 1 of the 2 is the cause. I believe it's the lightening, but the loud thunder rumble might really be the cause. Once I get the ap alert, being away from the vehicle, doing a remote lock/unlock of the vehicle silences the alarm. I guess my small concern is if I'm remote from car, like on vacation, and somehow don't get the alert the alarm was triggered, I assume it will time out and eventually stop with the noise and flashing lights.:rolleyes:
This happened to me this weekend. I think my alarm was triggered 3 times in the past two days. I believe the first time was from very loud thunder. It happened last night though too, and I think my neighbor was just getting into their car in front of mine. I disabled the new camera for sentry mode option. Not sure if that will fix it.
