Show in-app status and send push-notifications on open windows, doors and locks

My personal experience with the Volvo XC90 is, that it sends the users a notification through the app that they've left a window open or door not completely closed, after locking the car. Can't say a lot more about it: it's just GREAT. It saved me once when leaving the car on a sunny day at an unattended parking lot with an open window.

Moreover, having that status shown in the app is really comforting.

I have experience coming to the car in rain, and one door not completely close and window slightly down.
Also experienced returning to the car at a public garage, unlocked because one door was not completely closed.
Also notification/ audible warning, if I forget phone (phone-key) in TM3.

If you lock the car with an open window, you can close it via VENT/CLOSE ... but it is very hard to see if it actually did close the window and the app seems also not to sure about it as it keeps showing the CLOSE label.

Some simple warnings and graphics would be very nice to have.
