Hello fellow model Y owners.
I just want to share a video of the Hansshow foot/kick sensor installation. If you have a question on the installation process, just send me a message. Enjoy the video.

Awesome. One part is a bit confusing - in the video he says app needs to be open. Does it mean if I am within bluetooth range anyone can open it? What's with app open in general.. Is there a special state of authorization for the car if app is open and screen is locked?

Even your phone is locked as long as your Tesla app is open and the phone is in your possession, the sensor should work.

It works exactly the same when you unlocked your car with your phone on you. In other words, even your phone is locked, as long as your Tesla app is open, the sensor should work.

I doubt it, but if it does, just relocate the sensor. The hardest part of the install is fishing the wire to the rubber boot. Took me 2 hours to install.

Tesla cars automatically goes to locked position when you’re driving. The sensor will not trigger as long as the car is in locked mode. I believed when they did the frunk review on low speed, the sensor triggered because the auto locked did not endgames because if very low speed.
