I had the rear quarter window smashed on my refresh S a few weeks back; would-be thief folded down the seat to see that I didn’t have anything in the trunk. I was very surprised that the sentry alarm didn’t go off:
- The latch button for the rear seats is electric (vs the mechanical switch on my old Model 3), so I would have assumed that it being activated while the car is in alarm mode with the doors locked would have set the alarm off? Or, if the car is alarmed, the seat lock shouldn’t actuate to unlock?
- I also thought I remembered seeing that the refresh S had “interior radar” (perhaps I assumed it would have included this upgrade) to detect interior motion when locked, e.g. from someone who had smashed a window. Regardless, I would also assume that the interior camera would have noticed an entire row of seats folding down.
- Sentry did record the “event” without alarming, but the video quality on the cameras was too poor for me to see the license plate.
