Can the Model S alarm be activated using the fob? I can't find this discussed in the manual. I seem to recall that two presses on the top of the fob will kill the car alarm, but I don't know about activating it.
A related question: how far away from the car can you be and still use the fob buttons? I know you have to get pretty close for the automatic keyless entry to work, but what about pressing the buttons to lock and unlock, etc.
I know on my Ford I can lock or unlock the doors and set off or kill the alarm from quite a distance. This is often useful.
