    Trying to understand the remote window operation (or lack thereof). For Model X you can vent the windows from the native Tesla app, but not close them. On other models I understand you can close too. Why?! Can’t be safety, same auto pinch system exists... can’t be electro-mechanical, if you can send a signal to roll down, you can send signal to roll up - proof: during my 1 week trial of 3rd party app “Tessie” it had commands that allowed rolling up that worked, in fact, I believe it would do full roll downs, not just vent, but I know it could roll up. I even made a Siri voice shortcut to be able to do it from Apple Watch. Definitely a first world problem, but of all the electronic novelties in this car, that one could actually be useful for rain, etc. Tessie was fine for a trial, but I despise and avoid subscriptions wherever possible, not to mention the hit and miss in 3rd party apps and preventing sleeping. Anyone have a method to close the windows from the home assistant integration perhaps or lucky enough to have a Tesla app developer here that knows why it can’t be functionality in the native app?
