iOS Critical Alerts

Hi all,

Ever since iOS12, Apple allows apps to send Critical Alerts.
These are alerts that, when allowed on the phone, will be showed regardless of the state of the phone (like muted).

These alerts can be used for emergency notifications like a a triggered home security/fire alarm.


@Homey developers: Is there any chance you could request this with Apple?
Since HomeAssistant already has this functionality implemented, I figure it wouldn’t be too much of an issue for Homey either.

Thanks,
Rick
