Ecobee custom alerts / icons

Hi there,

I would love to be able to show either a custom alert, or some custom icon/indicator on my Ecobee 3 for when my garage is open.

There used to be an LED indicator that the previous owner had installed into the old thermostat, but after replacing it with an Ecobee, I no longer have the same (albeit very custom functionality)

I have all the necessary home automation equipment and know-how, just wondering if there is a way through the API to either show a custom alert (that ideally auto-expires, I don't need 10 thousand "open garage" notifications), or a way to trigger a new "notification icon" on the display as a garage door indicator.

I realize this is a very nichey issue. The product is great at what it does, but as an easily visible screen in my house, I'd love to be able to add some extra notifications onto it.
