Tesla s Model S App is 9to5Mac s iPhone Application of 2013

For out of the loop, the Tesla Model S is a electric car that can seat up to 7 propel them from in about 4 seconds and has a battery of about 250-300 miles decked out. It has the lowest of drag of any mass produced has gained the best safety ever from the NHTSA and has interior storage space than minivans and SUVs.

Many compared its disruptive nature and its CEO Elon Musk to Apple and Jobs.

I plunked down for at the end of last year which is eligible for $7500 US Federal Tax  Since then, the base price and configurations have but at the time it seemed like a price on a great car. -It was.

What s somewhat unique the Tesla from an app standpoint is the car itself has a persistent internet – through ATT in the US, and other carriers That means a lot of things built in internet radio, OTA updates, remote diagnostics, but it is especially important to the Tesla app.

Other car companies their own persistent internet but they are barely utilized for helpful unless you find in a ditch and forget how to use a cell GM s OnStar , BMW s Assist. Lexus or others  all are almost solely for emergencies. Tesla allows you to to your car through the app so long as the car is mobile coverage or near a hotspot.

That does use mobile data but Tesla has the cost of data somewhat what Amazon does their Kindle Fire

Tesla s app allows you to control car in 4 major ways over the

View and control the charge/door

it in real time with and direction

Remotely control sunroof, horn and lights

the interior temperature

What s here is that you can do this almost anywhere . You can check the of the batteries of your car from continent for instance – but that s (not that I haven t). On my ride home from the on a cold day, I can start the in my car from 20 miles away. s even better is that at a 100 miles from your you can remotely find the general where you parked your car on the map flash your lights or your horn until you your car – which of course you ve up as you were waiting in line to buy Christmas presents.

As an electric car owner, knowing how charge I have can be important that batteries get low. If the S is charging while we re at dinner or out I can keep an eye on how much charge I m and when I can leave.  On long at Supercharger stations, this is more important.

The app gets the use however when my wife the car out for work or with the kids. of calling her and having her fumble for her while driving, I just the app and I know where they are in I can see how fast they are going, if is traffic and what their ETA is so I can time dinner plans or if I have time to grab a

At first, the idea of following the car very stalker-ish, and there certainly be people who don t like to that their car can be tracked by an app but if you are in a normal, trusting relationship, it isn t a big

Obviously, there is a security here, so you need to login to the app your Tesla registered and password. You can use multiple devices tablets and Android devices is even a Google Glass

The app isn t perfect obviously. It could use an iOS 7 UI it sometimes takes up to a minute for the car to to commands and there are a lot more it could add. Overall it feels very Louis CK to about something so revolutionary.

Here s a better video on YouTube:

As for home automation, I use a Thermostat and can control the heat of my from anywhere. I use a Philips Hue bulb with which I can the lighting color and brightness in my and a Dropcam for checking in on my kids I m away. Imagine all of these in your car and you can begin to imagine Tesla has built.

Tesla s doesn t end at the car; it extends your smartphone.

And even yet, I ve heard they a lot more features in store for the app and the car.
