Tesla S100D Dec 2018 2019.28.3.1
The car is parked in the garage overnight
Sentry Mode is off in fact all Vehicle options are set to off and all the security options are set to off ( this my expected lowest power situation)
Auto fob entry is off and the car is left unlocked in the garage ( it would need locking in an airport garage )
The car since sentry mode was added or enhanced has its overnight loss increased form 3 miles to 6 to 8 miles ( with all the security options set to on it is 10 to 12 miles).
Now when viewing the sentry mode video on the USB with all of the above options off there are several overnight recordings of the inside of the garage.
No one was in the garage during the night and moreover Sentry mode is presumably off so it should not be recording.
A selection feature for overnight or long term parking at Airports that forces minimum power consumption is needed. Having to turn of every feature one by one is moronic.
I no longer have the confidence to leave the Tesla at the airport since sentry mode at least for my car never seems to fully shut off.
Sure maybe the battery is saved at 20% to allow for driving to the nearest Super Charger but all Sentry mode ever does for me at least is generate false positives.
I have emailed Tesla and called and left messages at the Tampa SC it has been 2 weeks but maybe it takes a month for them to respond.
