It would be nice if there was an option to alert you through email, text, or the app if there was an issue with the equipment connecting back to Tesla for a certain (ideally configurable) amount of time so that you could have potentially been notified of the issue last night rather than requiring a human to notice it this morning. Had you been on vacation or if the equipment happened to be installed in an out-of-the-way location, you might not have been aware there was an issue if you were not somebody who checks the app regularly. For my setup (with the TEG hard-wired) I would expect essentially no outages, unless my internet was out (and even then, when it actually was, the failover to cellular worked flawlessly) so I would appreciate an alert on the order of 15-30 minutes if the TEG wasn't communicating back to Tesla (or was communicating a problem.)
I asked my project advisor if the app gives any notifications on your mobile device of problems with your system. He said Tesla monitors all systems and is alerted if something is wrong. Apparently not true from the OPs experience.
Does anyone have any suggestions how to keep apprised if something is amiss, or not working properly?
I expect I will not be checking my app everyday as I have been since I only recently got my activation and it has captivated my attention as a new learning experience. But I am now getting away from checking several times a day.
My PWs are outside and I am certain I would not have seen any green flashing light or heard a chiming noise as your wife fortunately did.
