The best aspects of a Tesla are the range and straight-line driving experience off the line. Their cabin software package advantage has been eroded pretty quickly by the luxury manufacturers. I don't think Tesla is going to be able to play the "well our software is just so damn good you don't need it" game much longer.
I like the idea of their smart bolt because you can simultaneously avoid ruining the look and feel of a door and not have to deal with rekeying a cylinder to keep your houses doors on the same key.
Unfortunately, bluetooth transport is a death sentence for smart devices. You will not be able to reliably trust this with automations and it will more often have a big red "No Response" label under it in the Home app.
It is sad that such a well engineered product has such a debilitating weakness. Hopefully they'll add thread support in an updated model or just go wifi.
