I'd like to suggest upgrading alerts such as "Low Battery" and "Device Disconnected" be sent out via text message in addition to email. Email is becoming the USPS of the internet as a means to communicate.
Simply set your email address as your carriers email to text. Verizon is firstname.lastname@example.org
This would be a more viable solution if Iris would let you set a notification email address different from your main email address. If you do this then all emails you get will come in as text messages.
