Ambient notifications can support people in their daily activities, providing courses of action and relevant information in context. A key aspect of ambient notifications is the unobtrusive provision of information, embedded into the users' environment. The number of services which are providing notifications on numerous devices, both mobile and embedded into the environment, is increasing. Therefore, is important to find unobtrusive ways for notification, avoiding redundancy, and the appropriate detail of information and alert level. In this work, we describe some of the challenges that arise when designing ambient notification environments and provide alternative approaches by describing specific scenarios and use cases for these kind of systems.
