How to Enable Power Outage notification?

How do I set up a push or SMS notification of a power outage?  I recently installed your latest gen system.  My old gen 1 system would notify me of an outage & of power restored.

Hi @jmarraccini ,

Power Outages still do generate a notification, and it's enabled by default. But with the Gen 3 system, there is a delay of 1 minute (as part of the UL-985 standard). So you might just need to wait a bit more before the outage notification appears for you.

Thanks, I tested it & it does notify after a minute & notifies after minute after it has been restored.
