    I locked myself out of the house today. House key in car. Phone + wallet in house. :oops:

    Went to the neighbours, called Tesla Assistance. 10 mins later (on hold) car open, keys recovered. Thank you Tesla!

    I know plenty of manufacturers can do it but it is a neat trick. 10 years ago that would have been a 2h drive to M&D or an airbag down the window frame :eek:.

    For something else, but I found Roadside super helpful too. Just wish the hold time wasn't so long.

    Sounds like it could have been much worse! How did they confirm ownership from a security point of view

    Very helpful but.... it still makes me uncomfortable that someone somewhere has the power to essentially disable all the security in my car.
    Call me old fashioned...

    I believe that it is possible to unlock the car from TeslaFi and a web browser which may be a useful get out f jail card.

    You can unlock the car with the Apple Watch app for Tesla also.

    Can also download the app on anyone’s phone temporarily and login to unlock or even remote start from partners phone if they have the app. Just need to remember their phone number!
