A great enhancement to sentry mode would to enable the car to push notifications to your phone when motion is detected similar to a ring doorbell. When you click the notification it then streams the video feed to your phone. Along with the new speaker in front, you can also talk to the possible suspect from your phone.
v10 introduced scheduled departure charging and preconditioning however, it only creates exceptions for weekends. With this setting enabled, the vehicle will still preconditioning the cabin even on holidays or on days when someone may stay home which is wasteful. It would be nice to override the schedule and have some more control over charging from within the mobile app.
If you forget to close a window and leave the car, use the 'Deep Rain' to close it if it rains or snows, or get a warning on the Tesla app so we can close it from the app?
Background: sometimes you want to type in a password (or paste from a password manager) on the web browser. It's a pain to type a long complicated password on the touchscreen
Idea: similar to AppleTV, allow the mobile app to pop-up an input box whenever the touch screen is seeking input. Then you could easily type from your phone keyboard.
iPhone users can turn on their climate control from their Widget panel, but Android (even though they had Widgets first) does not have a Tesla widget for doing the same. Please add a Quick Controls Widget for Tesla on Android (like iphone already has)
Often we walk away from the car and forget to roll up the window or the trunk might not be closed all the way. If would be great if the could be alerts sent to your phone if:
- left keys in the car and its unlocked
- trunk or frunk not closed
- windows not closed

Have an option to lower and raise windows remotely to allow easier access with frameless doors in tight spaces without using summon and also to vent the car before you get to it in hot weather, and also linked to rain sensor so that they auto close if it rains.
When car is in garage I should be able to open the garage door from the app, when I summon the car while plugged in, it doesn't open garage door, because summon not available while plugged in
When your Tesla mobile app notices that you are getting close to the car (say in the parking lot), the climate system is turned on and starts to cool down the crazy hot car to its last known temperature setting. Now you have a nice cool car waiting for you... more »
Example profiles: Beautiful day windows open
Mobile app enable vent windows while in drive.
Personal reason for this is I like all windows to be at the same height. Aesthetically this looks much nicer when driving down the road. I typically manually bump window control lever multiple times trying to get the height set correctly... more »
I use Coyote and Waze warnings on my smartphone to anticipate on traffic situations ahead. It would be better to have a way to integrate the messages of these devices/apps into the Tesla UI (via API?). Now I have to put my phone or Coyote device on the dash in a place where I can't see it (behind the wheel). Not practical, nor aesthetical.
