Remote Preset Time for Climate On

25

Description

Via the app, remotely set the climate to turn on at a set time.

A super advanced mode would look at the calendar (if it has an address), estimate how long it will take to arrive, and work backwards to turn on the climate so when you get in, the car is at the right temperature.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

I do not always leave at the same time. But I would like the car interior to be at the  desired temperature when I leave. For example I knew yesterday that I would leave today at 9:00 and would have liked the car to be warm at that time  I would have liked to be able to tell it yesterday: “be at 20 deg. Celsius at 09:00 am. Judging from the current interior temperature and the time it takes to heat the car the software should start heating (or chilling) at the appropriate time so the desired temperature will be reached at the desired time

This was supposed to be implemented already, in Smart PreConditioning, and was done poorly. This is a tough problem to solve, as there are many edge cases to consider.

Run the VisibleTesla desktop app.  In it, you can set the car to start cooling at specific times.

I plug in each night, so I set my to start heating or cooling about 30 minutes before I usually leave each morning.

Same thing when I leave work.  It's set to start climate control before I leave (now, there is a risk here..  If I'm at work with minimal battery, so I need to make sure I'm never that low on the battery at 3pm M-F).
