I know this is not possible with the current hardware as it requires a constant power supply for this feature, but maybe the next version of the adapter could include this. It would be nice if I could get notifications on my phone when the alarm on my car is triggered. This would be great for when I have to park my car in a garage or lot and leave it for several hours or even days.

Thanks for the feedback, Chris. And for acknowledging that a feature like this would require a hardware change. :)

Hi Olim,

Thank for the suggestion, unfortunately that's not possible with the current hardware because it doesn't have its own power supply.

Some competing products have a small built-in battery that make this feature possible. Any chance that Automatic could include something like that in the future?

Hi Alex,

That may be possible at some point, but we currently don't have plans to do so.
