How do I turn off SMS notifications? I'd prefer to be notified by the App?
How do I get the ETA to be set 15 minutes from home and not just 0 minutes from home? I can't find an option for either in the app or the dashboard.
Thank you!

Hi Martin-

Do you mean the notifications that the app sends when your car parks and starts driving? If so, those are push notifications, not SMS, and you can turn them off by tapping on "Settings" from the main menu. You'll then see "Notifications". Tap on that and you can manage your notifications for "Vehicle Started", "Vehicle Parked", and "Issue Detected" with the Check Engine Light.

Regarding your question about ETA - are you talking about an IFTTT recipe? We don't have an ETA feature in the Automatic app. Please provide some additional detail.

I'm talking about the text messages I receive from
+1 (949) 565-2886
That state "Automatic has set your Nest to "Away", as you requested. Reply UNDO to cancel." (See image)
Automatic ETA rule triggered for Nest. Your ETA of 0 min was sent to Nest. Reply UNDO to stop sending ETA.
I don't recall those being IFTT but if they are then I can change that.

Oh, those are from your Automatic < > Nest integration. Here are several FAQs for the Nest integration. Specifically, here's one about the "precondition ETA".  You should be able to adjust your Nest integration settings on the Nest Automatic dashboard. 

If you don't find the information you need there, please let me know and I'll find someone here how might know the answers.
