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 do not think there is much innovation to be had in rich communication a la iMessage, WhatsApp, etc. I think the EU stepping in and enforcing a standard protocol on the market is fine. The market is mature and they waited until essentially everyone has arrived to nearly the same platform with their own twist anyway.

Honestly, best I can tell, HomeOS is often the culprit of problems in my smart home setup. Like when the primary HomePod forgets how to check for when sunrise and sunset is happening so those automation triggers stop working in my home until I pull the plug on the primary HomePod.
Anyway, how close would you consider close enough for your lock? I have a HomePod Mini just on the other side of an interior wall next to the entrance and there is an Apple TV roughly 15ft away in the living room.
