Like a lot of things Tesla related..Hi,
Im just curious (since it appears you have or had both Tesla and IX). Do you miss the Sentry mode? I have never had s tesla but loved the idea that it would wake and start recording as soon a somebody walked close to the car. With my IX, the alarm has to be triggered to do this. I have to say that nearly 100% of door dings and scratches that I have gotten on my other cars never caused the alarm to go off. Did you find it useful? Or just a battery drain
Here's my problem with Sentry mode. It's a mixture of too sensitive and difficult to review. If I were to park my Tesla X in a parking area, I'd come back to 20+ sentry notifications. Each notification is going to take 30+ seconds to view in the viewer. I don't have that kind of time to waste. If I see major damage of course I'd review the clips. But if it's a small ding, as has happened, I might not catch it immediately. Then I'm stuck going through 50+ clips looking for who might have gotten too close to the door or bumper. Also...rain can trigger it. Heaven help you if you park outdoors in the rain. I once came out in the AM to >100 Sentry events and a battery that had drained ~15 miles overnight.Did you find it useful? Or just a battery drain
I don't know if you looked specifically at the %age as you drove. After a two week gap in driving, the %age was the same as I left it (78%) when I got in but after a few hundred yards of driving it had dropped to 75%. I conclude that I lost 2-3% of charge over 2 weeks.Here is a bit of real world data for you. I drove from the UK to Spain, and left the iX in a marina car park for 8 weeks. I left it with 80% charge. Came back a couple of days ago, to 80% charge. Immediately did a 200 mile round trip and still had loads left, so it wasn't lying. Quite impressed with that.
